Our clients depend on obtaining beautiful theatrical stage drapery that is adaptable enough to be used for multiple parts of a single performance, concert, or production, and something that can easily transition from one act to another. And not just for rock concerts either— trade shows, churches, and even school productions also appreciate being able to have a versatile drapery that can be used in many different capacities for the same special event. We love being able to help provide them with some of our gorgeous rental drapes to help their stage designs become something truly special!
Recently we were thrilled to work once again with the imaginative theatre teacher and artistic director at Rock Ridge High School’s Performing Arts Department, Anthony Cimino-Johnson. We know how very sincerely Mr. Cimino-Johnson takes his job as instructor, as he was recognized as both an International Inspirational Theatre Educator of the Year and was named Virginia’s Theatre Teacher of the Year from the Educational Theatre Association. Therefore, with their upcoming production of Mary Poppins he wanted an exceptionally eye-catching drape that would help them create the appearance of a dramatic, crystal-clear night sky. He chose to use one of our Stardrop LED Rental Drapes, and we were very glad to be able to provide them with one!
Quick to install and extremely easy to operate, our Stardrop LED drape ended up being the perfect backdrop for a production that ended up having numerous lighting elements for various types of scenes throughout. These rental drapes consists of Blue-White LED lights on a rich backdrop of Black DFR Encore Velour. Easily programmable, our client could easily control the intensity and speed of flickering of the “twinkly starlights,” or have the lights stay completely on or off. Our Classic Stardrop LED drape offered not only the delightful and dramatic “starry sky” effect they were hoping for, but the rich black velour material also offered a great “void” for some production scenes that needed to stay nice and dark. This drape helped the school’s talented group of actors give each scene the exact look and feel that they sought after. The DMX Controller included with the rental allowed them to control the drape from both Front of House (FOH) off-stage with its own or Back of House (BOH) at their light board, which is a feature that lighting designers always appreciate having.
Another great attribute of our LED Stardrop curtains is that they are available for both rental and purchase. Need one for a single show or short tour? Renting is an affordable, amendable option—our versatile Classic LED drapes come in sizes 15’ x 30’ and 7’ x 30’ and can be run horizontally or vertically, allowing you to construct various sizes for your own unique stage. However, if you plan to utilize the drape over a long time frame, or require a custom size or light placement design, then purchasing an custom-built LED Stardrop is the way to go—and we will be very happy to help with that also!
