Buying stage curtains may not be the most glamorous job in show business but to the performers, the graduates, and the achievers who work so very hard for their moment in the spotlight…to them, the role you play matters. Davaine Lighting prides ourselves on making sure your new stage curtains fit properly, meet applicable fire and building codes, and are professionally installed so they look their best and perform flawlessly.
Where do I start?
Seems like buying a curtain should be easy. Then you get into it, and there are dozens of curtain types, hundreds of fabric options, trim, valances, and then decisions to make about flame resistance.
For a PTA leader or drama teacher who may only make a purchase of this nature once or twice in a lifetime, it can feel overwhelming and a little scary–what if you make a mistake?
Fortunately, you don’t have to direct the show alone. Davaine Lighting will visit your site, make recommendations and take measurements on your behalf. You can then budget with confidence, knowing that we’ll get it right the first time.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
If you’re like most people looking at new stage curtains, one of the first things you want to know is how much it’s going to cost. Despite superficial similarities, every stage is different and every theater will vary based on its respective stage curtain needs.
However, our reference below can help you get a ballpark sense of the size of your project.
- Approximately 80% of stage curtain projects will fall between $5,000 and $100,000.
- An elementary school’s stage needs will tend toward the lower end of the range.
- Professional touring houses, regional performing arts centers, and facilities with multiple rooms will tend toward the higher end of the range.
- The stage needs of high schools, churches, and community centers tend to land in the middle 2/3 of the range (approximately $20,000 to $85,000).
