Many have wondered why theater productions need backdrops. Backdrops by Charles H. Stewart can give you an answer. Backdrops provide the perfect and final element that ties the theatrical production together. From dance recitals to events and to the perfect scenery. Backdrops allow you to set the stage and enhance the decoration with the visual impact that makes a presentation unforgettable.
Backdrops, also known as backgrounds, have been used in films, photography for a visual scene behind a subject. They are used all around. In theater, backdrops appear on the stage, within the background, providing the perfect scenery for the scene that is being enacted. The great advantage of using backdrops is the mobility. With every scene that is being used, the backdrop can be changed multiple times that can correlate with the different themes of the play at any given moment.
Backdrops are often varied and range from different rural scenes to modern designs to different colors. For example, backdrops can be used for scenes that use jungle backdrops, a scene depicting a grand ballroom, or an icy and snow covered mountain. Many of these scenes allow the audience to understand the mood, tone and purpose of the scene as the play continues. Another bonus, is that backdrops can also replace the need for and cut down on the expense of multiple set pieces and props since they provide a full visual on a grand scale.
