Backdrops @ USITT 2016!

March 26th, 2016

We traveled to Salt Lake City to be a part of one of our favorite theater trade shows, USITT. We loved meeting so many students with passionate aspirations and talented theater directors and stage managers. The heartbeat of the theater industry can be felt through the many USITT Sessions and, of course, on the stage expo floor.

For the backdrop showcase, we chose to highlight our Paris Opera House backdrop. It showcases the high-detail and intricate work of our designers and artists. This backdrop is truly a show stopper. We were so excited that our hand-painted backdrop was next to the Electronic Theatre Controls booth. We loved the student session ETC held, which educated those passionate about following their dreams of being in the theater industry. Check out the short video showcasing our backdrop on our Facebook page.

USITT 2016 - Haunted House 1 backdrop

Our Haunted House backdrop was an awesome theatrical background to feature at USITT. We had so much fun with featuring this backdrop. So many of the attendees could not believe that it was hand-painted. It is such an inviting, spooky, and colorful backdrop that instantly caught the eye of onlookers. We loved talking to so many lighting designers that provided such positive feedback on how their techniques could enhance our backdrop. It’s so fun to see how the different color lighting can completely transform the look of the backdrop. With one backdrop, you can create multiple different moods depending on the lighting and what is focused on.

We may have even gotten a little silly in front our our backdrop with OSF Costume Rentals. Check out how fabulous their seriously awesome costumes look in front of our hand-painted background.

It was an amazing experience to be surrounded by the best in the theater industry. We’re already looking forward to next year’s USITT show.

Going The Extra Mile In Our Customer Service

Fantasy Kingdom Backdrop

Our customer service is second to none and we always go the extra mile to help our customers. A few weeks ago, our customer Michele Rubino was in distress because of an issue with not receiving one of the backdrops she expected. We first learned about the incident the evening before her event which made everything a bit more of a challenge for us. After reviewing all our options, we decided to jump on a plane and hand-deliver the backdrop.  Michele was shocked to learn that we would do something so out of the box to help her have a successful show.

At Backdrops Beautiful we value our customers and we will do everything we can to deliver on our product.  We will go up and beyond to earn your continued business to ensure a long-term successful partnership.

Here’s a testimonial from our valued customer Michele Rubino:

Dear Backdrop Beautiful,

I just wanted to write and let you know how pleased I am with not only your product but your amazing customer service as well! When there was a major snafu with one of our drops (no fault of your company), Backdrops Beautiful FLEW a backdrop to us on a commercial airline so we would have it for our production of “Cinderella”. Your backdrops were indeed beautiful and so was the service! Everyone there was friendly and helpful! We will be returning for our next big production for sure! Thank you for making “Cinderella” a truly enchanted experience!
