Summer was TheatreWorld Backdrops Highest New Production Cycle Yet!

Summer was TheatreWorld Backdrops Highest New Production Cycle Yet!

TheatreWorld’s creative and artistic teams had a busy, yet rewarding, summer. Our teams produced circa 80 new hand-painted designs to enhance our steadily-growing scenic and stage backdrop rental inventories. Many of these new designs support the most popular shows our clients produce, like Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Into the Woods, Lion King, Mary Poppins, Seussical, and 42nd Street.  Please visit our Latest page for a quick review of our Summer 2015 work.  As in recent years, TheatreWorld Backdrops’ design teams also worked with a few of our clients to design several backdrops that incorporate our customers’ input. Those backdrops will debut early this early fall.

The major enhancements to TheatreWorld’s Fairytale series excited our team members and customers alike.  From a secluded, Disneyesque Child’s Dreamland to a romantic Enchanted Castle, our design team called upon their inner-child to develop new backdrops filled with the scenic imagery that dreams are made of!  Our designers also tackled Palaces, Palace Foyers, snow-covered Landscapes, and a Frozen European Village. These new additions will perfectly support the snow-filled fairytale Frozen, but futhermore, these hand-pained scenic masterpieces are a welcome addition to our expanding backdrop rental inventories and we are very proud of them. Many customers have already ordered these new backdrops for their fall and spring productions!

Around the World Collection

Our Around the World collection of scenic stage backdrops continues to grow. This new collection allows you to experience the Hills of the African Safari, lava-filled beaches of Hawaii, Roman-built architecture in Saint Peter’s Square, and so much more, without ever having your passport stamped!  Should you wish to stay in the U.S., our beautiful scenic imagery depicting Miami, San Francisco, New York, Maine, and Hawaii will not disappoint!  TheatreWorld Backdrops’ growing inventory will help you and your teams set the mood and provide top quality scenic imagery for your next Stage Production, Dance Recital, or Special Event.   Below, please find a few highlights from this series.

Fall and Holiday Backdrop Updates

TheatreWorld’s client service teams look forward to supporting you and your teams as you plan your stage and theatrical seasons and holiday productions.  Due to popular demand, we have also produced multiple duplicates for many of the backdrops in our Nutcracker Series. Additionally, we are currently in the process of adding several more new designs to our holiday and snow collections. The new backdrops will be released late August and early September. TheatreWorld already has orders for our new Palace of Sweets, which was recently highlighted on TheatreWorld’s Facebook page as a sketch.

Even with the additional duplicates and multiple new designs, our seasonal inventory is limited. As a result, we recommend placing your order as early as possible to ensure your first choice backdrop selections. Please visit TheatreWorld Backdrops’ Latest Backdrop page to see our recent designs. To see the new releases as they happen, please like TheatreWorld on Facebook!

We encourage everyone to try out our “Wish List” feature for planning and ordering your show and production packages.  Our customer feedback shows that this is a very useful planning and ordering tool.

Major Summer Projects

In addition to our major scenic design and backdrop development efforts, everyone on our discipline teams undertook several major projects. TheatreWorld’s website development team, supported by our Search and SMO consultant, enhanced the website to more efficiently support mobile devices. The team also enhanced the site’s overall user-friendliness. Our administrative and back-end support systems’ teams completely re-wrote our internal backdrop management and support systems.  Our backdrop quality control teams steamed hundreds of backdrops (and made repairs and touch-ups to another hundred or so) to ensure our inventory is in the absolute best condition for your upcoming productions.  Additionally, a small group of TheatreWorld Backdrop rental units were downgraded. As a result, these backdrops will only be available for stage productions/applications and will also rent for a discount. Our team took current photos of these backdrops, which you will be able to view on our site soon.

TheatreWorld Backdrops’ support teams look forward to assisting you in any way possible with your upcoming productions.  Please don’t hesitate to call us at 855 – TWB-Drops. You can also chat with us online or, alternately, you can submit your Wish List to our Quality Control team.
