Directors Roundtable Backdrops
The first thing Shrek needs is a swamp as gross as he is to call home. SHREK'S SWAMP is a dark, stinky bog with twisted trees. Add SHREK'S SWAMP LEGS and your ogre protagonist will feel right at home! To compliment the not-quite-fairytale opening, consider STORYBOOK, emblazoned with the same words that open the show. It also makes a great main drape. Or, use our SHREK MAIN DRAPE for your first impression. DULOC CASTLE EXTERIOR, with its forced perspective, has the same delusions of grandeur that Farquaad has himself--and EVIL QUEEN'S CASTLE INTERIOR is just right for the rest of his evil majesty's home. With the right lighting, TRANQUIL WOODS is perfect for everything from the travelling scenes to "Morning Person". DRAGON'S LAIR is a dark and spooky home for the fiery dragon. Finally, SAINT PATRICK'S CATHEDRAL is a picture perfect choice for Farquaad and Fiona's ill-fated wedding. Use a TheatreWorld backdrop for your production of Shrek--you'll be a believer!
