Setting the Stage For Cats The Musical 

The musical Cats is one of musical theater’s longest running and successful shows in both the United Kingdom and here in the States. As of 2022, Cats was ranked the fifth-longest-running New York City Broadway show, having played for 18 years and 7,485 performances. It was also the seventh-longest-running London West End show where it played for 21 record-breaking years and almost 9,000 performances. 

Not only was Cats a staple in the theater community for decades, it won many awards here and abroad. The production received eleven Tony Award nominations, out of which it won seven: Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical (T. S. Eliot), Best Original Score (Andrew Lloyd Webber and T. S. Eliot), Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical (Betty Buckley), Best Direction of a Musical (Trevor Nunn), Best Costume Design (John Napier), and Best Lighting Design (David Hersey).

Across the pond, the musical also garnered six Laurence Olivier Award nominations, winning two awards: Best New Musical and Outstanding Achievement in a Musical (Gillian Lynne).

Given its popularity and long-standing reputation as a musical mastermind on stage, it is no wonder it has become a favorite of community theaters and private theater groups. If your organization is planning a showing of Cats, here are some of our backdrops that can help you set the stage for a successful run! 

CatsBackground on the Story of Cats 

The story of Cats chronicles the lives of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles. The entire thrust of the performance revolves around the idea that the cats must decide annually which one will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back reborn to a new Jellicle life.

Throughout the show, the audience meets several cats who tell their stories and give their best pitches as to why they should be chosen. Some seem as if they don’t need to be reborn while others don’t seem to give a good reason as to why they should be chosen. In the end, the former glamour cat turned disheveled outcast, Grizabella, is chosen by Deuteronomy to receive the prized additional life. Her rendition of Memory makes the other cats who refused to accept her think twice. 

One of the overarching themes of the musical involves the idea of accepting one another despite our differences in appearance. Audiences see this as the cats, who once judged Grizabella due to her appearance, eventually see her for who she is and choose her as the one to be reborn. 

Backdrops for Cats 

Most of the musical takes place in a London junkyard where the cats congregate both during the day and in the late evenings. Here are some of the most popular backdrops for this performance in our inventory. 

This Night Sky Stars Backdrop #2560 displays a night sky with a gradient purple to black sky and bright and white stars.

night moonThe Night Moon Backdrop #2479 is also a great choice as it shows a night sky with stars and a distant moon flanked by the silhouette of trees.

Fantastic Seussical The Musical Backdrops 

Seussical the Musical brings together some of our favorite Dr. Seuss book characters while exploring the themes of friendship, love and loyalty.

If you love the zany and somewhat eccentric Dr. Seuss books you are in for a treat with a performance of Seussical the Musical. With characters such as The Cat, (from The Cat in the Hat), Horton (from Horton Hears a Who), the Mayor of Whoville (from The Grinch), and Gertrude McFuzz (from The Butter Battle Book), your theater group is sure to be excited about this quirky musical. 

Let’s explore some of the backdrops we have here at Charles Stewart specifically designed for this musical and how they will fit in with your group’s performance. 

seussical the musicalWhat is Seussical The Musical

Seussical The Musical is a much-loved musical stage adaptation based on the books of Dr. Seuss. The play’s story combines the characters we have come to love and the storylines from over 15 Dr. Seuss books. Seussical opened on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on November 30, 2000, and was directed by Frank Galati with choreography by Kathleen Marshall. It ran for 198 performances before going on tour across the United States and the United Kingdom. 

The plot of the musical, although not linear by any means, loosely follows Horton the Elephant as he attempts to protect the people of Who-ville. During his journey, he encounters characters from a wide assortment of Dr. Seuss books who cause chaos and turmoil. Against all odds, Horton and Gertrude collaborate to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool.

What’s the Difference Between Broadway & Off Broadway? 

What constitutes a theater being distinguished as Broadway, Off Broadway, or even Off-Off Broadway? Is it the cost? Quality of the show? Location to the famous thoroughfares of Broadway Marquis, and Winter Garden in New York City? 

The answer is actually, none of the above. 

With professional theaters in every major city across our nation, how does one determine whether a show or musical is considered a Broadway or Off Broadway show? It’s surprisingly a simple answer having to do with seating. 

What Determines A Broadway Theater? 

There are about 41 Broadway Theaters in New York City. These theaters include a seating capacity of 500 or more and reside on Broadway Street, West 40th Street to West 54th Street, and Sixth Avenue to Eighth Avenue.

Historically, the classification of being a “Broadway show” was much different when the theater scene began back in the 1700s. In the decades following the Civil War, the theaters of New York moved to Midtown Manhattan where a grouping of ornate buildings were later dubbed the “Great White War” by theatergoers.

Broadway Theaters and shows have strict guidelines, including being located in the theater district and abiding by the Actors’ Equity’s Broadway production contracts. According to Broadway Direct, “Broadway productions are required to employ union members unless special arrangements are made, usually requiring the stamp of approval from the specific union that addresses that particular area of expertise.”

Broadway theaterThe cost of ticket prices are generally higher in a Broadway production and the cost of producing the shows are greater as well. According to Tours By Foot, “Musicals on Broadway typically have an average initial cost of $9.6 million and for Off-Broadway musicals $1 million.” However, their prime location and luxurious productions often attract many tourists.

Where Can I See Broadway Shows?

With 41 Broadway Theaters in New York City, there are many places to see a professional Broadway show. Some of these theaters include Al Hirschfeld Theater, Belasco Theater, Gershwin Theater, Lena Horne Theater, and the Richard Rodgers Theater.

You’ll find all of these 41 theaters between 41st Street and 54th between Sixth Avenue and Ninth Avenue in Manhattan. Lincoln Center’s Vivan Beaumont Theater is the only exception, located on 65th Street.

From plays to musicals, each Broadway Theater has its own selection of shows. Check out the popular musical Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theater or the sing-along to Moulin Rouge! The Musical at the Al Hirschfeld Theater. If you’re interested in seeing a play, head to Circle in the Square Theater for An Enemy of the People or catch Mother Play at Helen Hayes Theater. With the variety of plays and musicals in these Broadway Theaters, you’ll find a show that is perfect for you.

What Determines Off Broadway Theaters?

There are about 60 Off-Broadway Theaters in New York City. They typically hold seating for 99-499 people

Historically, the Off-Broadway movement began in the 1950s when theatergoers were disturbed by the high price of a ticket to see a show or musical. Theater lovers were looking for a less expensive venue to see shows. As a result, some of these Off-Broadway venues have become the birthplace of some wonderfully experimental shows that have delighted audiences for years.

Compared to Broadway, Off-Broadway Theaters have a mix of commercial and non-profit spaces. Only Broadway shows are eligible for Tony Awards while both can be nominated for Drama Desk Awards. However, only Off-Broadway can be nominated for Obie Awards, which celebrate the best in only Off-Broadway plays and musicals. In special instances, shows that begin Off-Broadway eventually move onto Broadway, with Hamilton and The Band’s Visit as examples.

Broadway vs off-broadway seatings

Where Can I see Off-Broadway Shows?

You’ll find many of the 60 Off-Broadway theaters in Greenwich Village in New York City. Some of the theaters include 30 Wall Street, Cherry Lane Theater, Classic Stage Company, and New World Stages.

There’s a variety of shows to choose from like musicals and plays. Enjoy classic fun musicals like Little Shop of Horrors at Westside Theater or Titanique at the Daryl Roth Theater. If you’re looking for a play, check out The Effect located at The Shed, or The Play That Goes Wrong at New World Stages. Off-Broadway theater has many unique types of shows for you to enjoy!

What Determines an Off-Off-Broadway Theater?

Off-Off-Broadway Theaters hold under 99 people. There are around 120 Off-Off Broadway Theaters all around New York City. These kinds of shows will have cheaper ticket prices, and you’ll have more chances to see the actors after the show ends. They are often avant-garde and experimental pieces that don’t fit the traditional play or musical genre.

Where Can I see Off-Off-Broadway Shows?

Choose between 120 Off-Off-Broadway shows in New York City alone! Like Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, you’ll find a variety of selections around the theater district.

With Off-Off-Broadway, you’ll face a lot of original works that may be a little out of the ordinary. Yet, they are sure to make an impact on you regardless of the subject material. Some Off-Off-Broadway theaters include Actor’s Temple Theatre, Connelly Theater, Ars Nova, New Ohio Theater, and Latea Theater. Enjoy comedy shows, rising talents, festivals, music, dance, and deep-subject matter.

Our Favorite Alice In Wonderland Backdrops 

Many of us grew up with a parent or teacher reading us the classic tale of Alice In Wonderland as we discovered Alice and her journey into the world of Wonderland. We first were introduced to Alice as she hopped down a rabbit hole and explored the fantasy world of anthropomorphic creatures such as the White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat. This classic story will probably stay with us for the remainder of our lives as it engages and draws in the audience on many levels. 

At Backdrops By Charles H. Stewart, we have over 15 specific backdrops created with Alice In Wonderland in mind. Let’s explore this classic story and how our backdrops can help your production come to life. 

The Tale of Alice In Wonderland 

Alice in Wonderland opened on December 23, 1886, at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London and was based upon Lewis Carroll’s book of the same name. It was and is still one of the most successful children’s books of all time. 

The musical and theatrical performance chronicles the story of a young girl, Alice, who stumbles across a fantasy world on a beautiful summer day. She follows a creature, which we will later find out to be the White Rabbit, down a hole only to discover a mysterious underground world she calls Wonderland. While in the underground fantasy world, Alice encounters fabulous creatures that defy all reasonable expectations.  

After shrinking and growing with the help of a magical potion and food, she starts to encounter fantastical creatures who teach her a little more about her world including twin jabbering clowns, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, who teach her some manners. She also meets the Mad Hatter who plays a game of musical chairs with the young girl at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. She also encounters the endlessly grinning Cheshire Cat who appears and disappears in the blink of an eye. 

All of these anthropomorphic creatures frustrate and entertain young Alice until she finally awakes and realizes the entire thing has been a dream! 

Alice In Wonderland Backdrops 

Let’s review some of our more popular backdrops for this classic tale.

Set The Stage for Phantom of the Opera 

If you love theater then you probably know the story of the Phantom of the Opera, the amazing score and lyrics that accompany this award-winning Broadway show. 

The longest-running show in Broadway history, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera debuted in 1986, winning seven Tony Awards in 1988 including Best Musical and Best Actor as well as the 1986 Olivier Award. 

The Phantom’s haunting love story comes with incredible music and lyrics created by the brilliance of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Charles Hart and Richard Stilgoe that have enchanted audiences for over thirty years. These include The Music of the Night, Think of Me, All I Ask of You, Past the Point of No Return and The Phantom of the Opera to name five of the most popular musical numbers. 

The Story of the Phantom of the Opera

Based on Gaston Leroux’s horror novel of the same name, Phantom tells the enticing story of a Phantom, who haunts the stage of the Paris Opera and subsequently falls in love with a beautiful young soprano, Christine.

The Phantom, a musical genius with a disfigured face, lives beneath the Paris Opera House where he lurks in the shadows and terrorizes the cast and crew of shows all while secretly tutoring a young soprano on her singing abilities. The young chorus girl, who has the potential talent to skyrocket her to musical fame, becomes a love interest of the Phantom. 

The Phantom’s obsession with Christine causes him to attempt to scare and injure the lead diva Carlotta in order to have Christine named to the leading roles in the theater group performances. A childhood friend of Christine’s, Raoul, the Vicomte de Changy and patron of the Opera House, comes on the scene and also shows an interest in Christine, to the chagrin and tortured jealousy of the Phantom. 

In a fit of rage after finding out that Raoul took credit for Christine’s singing abilities, the Phantom is followed by Christine into his underground lair. After months of quiet in the theater, the Phantom presents the managers with a new Opera he has written called Don Juan as well as a threat to do as he wishes or bad things will happen in the theater. 

After a trap has been set for the Phantom during the performance of Don Juan, the musical comes to a climax in the doomed relationship in the love triangle of Raoul, Christine and the Phantom. 

Backdrops for Phantom of the Opera

Since a majority of the musical is set in the Paris Opera House, the Phantom’s underground lair, the manager’s office, a neighboring graveyard, and the rooftop and the backstage area of the Opera House, it makes sense that many of the backdrops are depicted as opulent opera venues and the surrounding areas. 

This European Village Backdrop #2553 depicts Tudor-style buildings in the center of a European town and distant mountains. It is perfect for illustrating France in the 1800s. 

For scenes on stage or backstage, this Theater Stage View Backdrop is currently for sale and depicts the stage as if you are looking out upon an empty theater. 

 

Or if renting is more in line with your budget, this Theater Stage View Backdrop #2303 shows a view as if you are standing on a stage looking out into an empty theater.

Explore Neverland with a Peter Pan Performance 

If you’ve ever grown weary of the responsibilities of adult life, you will be able to relate to the story of Peter Pan and his friends, the Lost Boys. 

The musical adaptation of this play was made possible by J. M. Barrie’s 1904 play of the same name and Barrie’s novelization of it, Peter and Wendy. The story chronicles the adventures of the Darling children of London, England – Wendy, Michael and John – as well as the mischievous and mysterious boy, Peter Pan, who lives in a magical land called Neverland. When their paths cross, they travel to faraway places, learn the joys of childhood, the evils of pirates like Captain Hook and the yearning to never grow up. 

The Story Behind Peter Pan 

The story of Peter Pan is a classic tale of the innocence of youth and the desire to never grow up or take on the responsibilities of adulthood. The story explores the world of fairies, pirates, and orphans while giving the audience robust main characters to fall in love with as they navigate childhood into young adulthood. 

Peter Pan is a magical young boy who lives a carefree life but without a mother to care for him. He lives in a special place called Neverland with other orphaned children called the Lost Boys. While he may avoid the responsibilities of the real world and enjoy the wonder of childhood, he is also void of a family to love him. 

When he meets the Darling children in their nursery room one evening, he plans to take them to Neverland where Wendy can be their surrogate mother and care for him and all the Lost Boys. The Darlings initially enjoy their time with Peter and the Lost Boys flying and playing on the island and in the underground hideout, ventually, they find that the scary pirates and Captain Hook may be too much for them to take. After all, Captain Hook is out for revenge as Peter is the one responsible for cutting off his hand and feeding it to an alligator who follows the Captain around. 

In the end, the Darlings and the Lost Boys decide to return to London where the Darling parents adopt all the children and enjoy talking about their adventures. Meanwhile, Peter decides to remain in Neverland and refuses to ever grow old.

Scenes & Backdrops for Peter Pan

The story of Peter Pan begins in London in the Darling family home where the children play and sleep. Peter begins his relationship with the Darlings by showing them how he flies and introducing Tinker Bell to the children. 

nursery

This Nursery Backdrop #0243 depicts a child or infant’s bedroom with toys on the floor, a chandelier, an open window, and an ornate ceiling. It is the perfect backdrop for the Darling children’s bedroom right down to the windows in which Peter Pan first appears. 

The London rooftops are a main focus as the Darling children take their first flight with Peter Pan and travel from London to Neverland. This backdrop, European Rooftop Backdrop #2516 shows a London rooftop with Victorian chimneys, St Paul’s Cathedral and a purple sky.

This Neverland Backdrop #2590 shows the island of Neverland with Captain Hook’s ship, waterfalls, mountains and a blue sky. This backdrop would be suitable for the time that the Darlings visit with Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. 

The scenes with Captain Hook, the alligator with the ticking clock and the pirate ship would do well with this Pirate Ship Deck Backdrop # 2583. It depicts an old wooden ship deck with canvas sails, cannons, ropes and pulleys, and Captain’s quarters showing pink and purple sky, sunset and ocean.

Follow The Yellow Brick Road in The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz is an iconic musical conceived and written by Lyman Frank Baum in 1900. For over a hundred years, this classic and modern fairy tale has taken theaters by storm as a beloved choice for professionals and amateur theater groups across the nation.

The Chronicle of Dorothy’s Trip To The Wizard

The Wizard of Oz follows the story of Dorothy, a young Kansas girl who lives with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry. Unfortunately, Dorothy and her loyal dog, Toto, get swept up in a tornado and find themselves transported to a strange land called Oz. 

Upon crash landing her home on top of a witch, Dorothy meets the Witch of the North who thanks her for killing her sister, the Witch of the East. She also meets the inhabitants of Oz called Munchkins who advise her to follow the yellow brick road to the Wizard who may be able to get her back to Kansas. 

As she begins her trip to see the Wizard, she encounters three characters who join her on the journey – a cowardly Lion, a Scarecrow who longs for brains, and a Tinman who yearns for a heart. The group sets off to see the Wizard as they navigate their own challenges along the route. 

Upon finding the Emerald City, where the Wizard resides, they realize that even without his help, they are able to use their own strengths to help each other. This strength of friendship and kindness is a common theme as the new-found friends fight off Flying Monkeys and other trials along the way. 

Set the Stage For The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz has a certain whimsical flair and the backdrops should portray that as well. Here are a few of our favorites from the cornfields of Kansas to the castle in the Emerald City.
