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!

Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH tells the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest…and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him—most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart and humor, BIG FISH is an extraordinary musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre—for an experience that’s richer, funnier and bigger than life itself.
