Hottest Spring 2012 Theatre and Event Backdrops

Hottest Spring 2012 Theatre and Event Backdrops

Since our inception, TheatreWorld’s core mission has centered around not only offering the finest Broadway-quality backdrops at the most reasonable cost, but also providing our customers with the highest quality of customer service and support to ensure that their production values are the best possible. Toward that end, we would like to sincerely thank the overwhelming number of theatres, schools and event planners who have contacted us over the past few months to assist them with their spring shows and events.

We don’t believe in merely serving customers. We believe in building ongoing relationships. While it would be impossible to feature all of our customers, we feel it is our responsibility to highlight several of our customers’ upcoming spring productions and events in an effort to bring more attention and well-deserved recognition for a job well done. Therefore, over the next few months, we will be featuring some of those customers here on the TheatreWorld blog.

Based on our internal tracking, the most popular shows and scenic backdrops for the spring season are:

GUYS AND DOLLS

One of Broadway’s greatest and most popular musical comedies, this Frank Loesser classic is a favorite among professional theatre companies and performing arts schools alike. TheatreWorld is pleased to be supporting a number groups and organizations presenting this musical hit, spanning both the full version with two or three scenic backdrops and the junior version featuring mainly one scenic backdrop, our Vintage Times Square backdrop. See our entire GUYS AND DOLLS backdrop collection on our website.

THE WIZARD OF OZ 

The beloved Frank L. Baum classic depicting Dorothy’s journey through Oz, is a widespread production favorite. TheatreWorld Backdrops is supporting a number of productions of this epic show featuring three to five scenic backdrops. One of our most possible WIZARD OF OZ backdrops is our stylized HAUNTED FOREST backdrop featured below.

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

This classic has been a childhood favorite for generations and recently enjoyed a resurgence with the 2010 Disney and Tim Burton film adaptation starring Johnny Depp. TheatreWorld is supporting presentations featuring between one and five scenic backdrops. Several of our special event planner customers have also selected ALICE IN WONDERLAND as the theme for their corporate events. Highlighted below is our Enchanted Mushroom Path backdrop from our signature ALICE IN WONDERLAND series backdrops.

The Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse adaptation of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic novella, this gothic musical mega hit is a production favorite year after year.

ANNIE GET YOUR GUN 

The light-hearted western romp of Annie Oakley. This show is, in fact, a show in a show and for all generations available in the classic version that starred Ethel Merman or the 1999 Peter Stone/Broadway revival version that starred Bernadette Peters and later Cheryl Ladd and Reba McEntire. Highlighted below is our Buffalo Bill Presents (Day) backdrop; a nighttime version is also available. See both on our ANNIE GET YOUR GUN show page.

Buffalo Bill Presents (Day) Professional Scenic Backdrop, Annie Get Your Gun

TheatreWorld’s Buffalo Bill Presents is the primary scenic backdrop selected by theaters and schools performing ANNIE GET YOUR GUN. This drop was inspired by the 1999 Broadway revival and intended to serve as either a stand-alone drop or as part of an entire scenic backdrop series.
