  • 1.  Star Curtain

    Calling all theatre friends,

    I am in need of a star curtain/drop for a production at the end of February, beginning of March. We have run into multiple dead ends. Anyone have a curtain we can rent? Or, if you have built one, was it difficult?

    I have a fiberoptic star curtain  16 tall by 30 wide with two circuits. They are powered by Martin QFX150's and I have two that work well.

    Where are you? --  I am in New Jersey and could rent it as long as it's back the first week of March or so -- we're using it at the end of March for our show. shipping would be a killer if you are far away from me...

    Do you have a cyc?  I used Christmas laser lights that you can put in your yard and cover your house in  light. The  lights cost about 40 bucks and I shone it on my cyc.  Looked like the stars.  Great effect.

    For BATB? Explore getting an entire scenic projection package --- for the traditional cost of a single drop!

    The package is editable; use it to enhance the scenery you've constructed, skip cues you don't want to use, etc.
