Directors Roundtable Backdrops
Big Fish is a musical the blends fantasy and reality, often shifting between the two at a quick pace. If you're looking to use one single backdrop and move set pieces in and out, opt for either TRANQUIL RIVER, featuring a wide, lazy river underneath a beautiful sunset, or FIELD OF DAFFODILS, which features the show's most iconic image, millions of yellow flowers stretching as far as the eye can see. If you're using multiple drops, TheatreWorld has every scene covered, from BAROQUE BALLROOM for Will's disastrous wedding to RIPPLED AMERICAN FLAG, a salute to the USA that's perfect for "Red, White, and Blue". For Ashton, the small town Edward longs to break free from, use our idyllic VINTAGE MIDWEST TOWN. Forest drops, like CAVERN and CLEARING IN THE WOODS can be used separately or can do double duty, working for both giant's cave and the witch's forest. TENTE DE CIRQUE is perfect for Calloway Circus, where Edward meets the love of his life, Sandra, and HARVARD GATES will bring you right to the campus of Auburn University, where Edward's journey to find her ends. With TheatreWorld's backdrops, you'll "Be the Hero" of your production of Big Fish!
