Discount Backdrop Collection

Welcome to TheatreWorld's Island of Misfit Backdrops!

TheatreWorld Backdrops’ Discount Backdrop Collection provides options for customers with very tight budgets to help control costs or expand their scenic stage selections. Many circumstances lead to our quality control teams to bring a specific unit to TheatreWorld’s “Island of Misfit Backdrops.” Some of these include fabric stretch (usually caused by mishandling or fog machines that are too close to the backdrop), damage to the unit from rigging, misplacement of set pieces, or stage teams, fading over time due to theatrical lighting, etc. Our repair and touch-up teams are very good, but some damage just can’t be brought up to TheatreWorld’s very high quality standards.

Every unit in this section has an explanation of the damage and a recent picture of the backdrop taken at a professional theater with basic amber stage lighting. Using various gels and lighting techniques, the backdrops can have different tones.

Misfit backdrops are included as part of the multi-backdrop package discount, whether you are choosing all or one misfit for your theatrical or dance event.

While the misfit is with you and after your detailed inspection, you may purchase the unit in your possession in an as-is condition. Your weekly rental charge will be deducted from the backdrop’s purchase price. Customers may purchase their specific misfit backdrop for the published price listed on its detail page. Simply call our Customer Service Team and let us know of your intent prior to returning your backdrop rental OR should you wish to purchase in advance of your production, please call our Customer Service Team (1.855.TWB.DROPS). 


Using minimal stage adjustments and creative lighting design, backdrops that are “Condition 4” are a great value. Our repairs and touch-ups are not generally noticeable from the audience. All misfit backdrops had their picture taken approximately 20 feet away. Additionally, our quality control team sat in the first couple rows of the theater and if the damage was easily visible, the backdrop was downgraded to a “Condition 3.”

These misfits are extremely discounted. The backdrop has damage that is noticeable and needs more TLC. We have decided to price these very attractively for anyone who can use it and provide these misfits with the love and attention they need. Each misfit detail page gives a description that explains the challenges that each backdrop currently has. If your team has the required skills to help these misfits out, the “Condition 3” backdrops may be for you.
