TheatreWorld Backdrops would like to thank all the directors, event planners, and dance companies who have selected our scenic backdrops to support their fall presentations. Many of our new Signature Series backdrops are rapidly becoming our most requested rental units.

AMERICANA-THEMED BACKDROPS NOW IN PRODUCTION.

On November 16th, TheatreWorld begins its winter development program. We’re releasing 30+ new designs – most of which highlight Americana at its best. These new, high impact Signature Series designs will span many of today’s most popular shows and themes. Shows include ANNIE GET YOUR GUN (4), HAIRSPRAY (3), GREASE (3), FOOTLOOSE (3), WEST SIDE STORY (3) and more! Other dynamic new designs will feature BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (4), LEGALLY BLONDE (3) and THE WIZARD OF OZ (2).

TheatreWorld’s first installment in its new Americana Series will debut throughout Florida in January with Stages Productions‘ touring production of LET FREEDOM SING. This multimedia, concert-style show is geared towards younger audiences and their families. We recommend everyone in the geographical areas of performances attend. Show schedules are available on the Stages Productions web site.

TheatreWorld continues to build Broadway-quality backdrops at an accelerated pace. In addition to the new designs highlighted above, we are increasing our rental inventories. This allows us to service additional customer requests every month. Please select and order backdrops early for your winter and spring events.

ATTENTION EARLY PLANNERS

We know many of you support or manage summer theatre camps. TheatreWorld Backdrops would welcome the opportunity to review your scheduled shows and dates with you. We are beginning to develop accelerated plans and special packages to support Summer Camps. Our goal is to help you to bring TheatreWorld’s next generation backdrops to your students, campers, and audiences. We strive to actively support and promote individuals strengthening American youth’s commitment to the arts. We welcome your input and look forward to supporting you. Please contact our customer support team to discuss.

CUSTOMER QUESTION: WHAT IS OUR FAVORITE BACKDROPS TO CREATE?

Finally, many of you have asked us which backdrops are the most fun to produce or give us the most pleasure. That’s a very difficult question, as each backdrop receives so much care. Producing our PHANTOM OF THE OPERA series was a blast and its general acceptance has been very gratifying. Recently, the two most fun backdrop new designs to develop and produce are our Whoville Christmas and the Olde World Toy Shoppe. (Featured below.) Our team seems to kick their efforts up a notch when creating backdrops intended for younger audiences.

There are lots of very exciting new developments on the immediate horizon for TheatreWorld Backdrops as well. However, as we approach the holiday season, we’d like to take a moment to wish all of our current and future customers and all our associates a very Happy Thanksgiving. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to contribute to your productions and develop ongoing relationships with you.
