The theatrical production world is unlike anything else out there—getting a group of incredibly artistic people together to whip up costumes, make-up, sets, and decorations, not to mention learning and memorizing lines, songs, musical numbers, dance routines, and other choreography, is no small feat at all. We all here at RW?/SW? love being able to provide rental and custom drapes to our wonderfully creative clients whenever possible, helping them by taking the stress out of at least one element of the show—the stage drapery!
We were thrilled to be able to work with Artistic Director/Theater Teacher, and Virginia Thespian Co-Director Mr. Cimino-Johnson (Mr. CJ to his students) at Rock Ridge High School For the Performing Arts again. He wanted some unique rental drapes to help create a “false proscenium” on stage for their Fall production of “Shrek—The Musical”. Needing the drapes to be eclectic yet versatile, dramatic yet edgy, and of course have some really cool texture and light like a dream, he decided on renting a few of our Aluminum Metal Mesh rental curtains from our Industrial Textures Drapery Collection.
Lightweight and easy to hang, these metal mesh drapes are a stage designer’s dream come true. By simply splashing different hues of colorful lighting onto them, you can very easily create a multitude of different looks and atmospheres using the same exact drapes each time. In this case, Mr. CJ and his talented students did an amazing job using these drapes mixed with some of their personally supplied “erosion netting” to help give the overall look of a stringy, Spanish-moss covered rocky swamp.
We look forward to working with this great school again in the future on their truly extraordinary productions, offering them different rental curtains based on their own particular needs. Contact our sales team today so that we can help YOU with getting the most perfect rental—or custom—theatrical stage curtains for your upcoming productions, concerts, and any kind of special events you can think of.
