I just saw a brief but interesting news article out of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. One of the local high schools requested funds from the school board to replace the stage curtains at one of the high schools.
The district cited safety concerns as the reason the curtains need to be replaced. At one point, the curtains started “smoldering” from the heat of the lights. No wonder – the curtains haven’t been replaced since the school was built over 45 years ago!
So…just something to keep in mind. Stage curtains are not intended to last 50 years. If the stage curtains in your school, church, or theatre have been around for decades, maybe now is the time to start thinking about replacing them. If you need info on how to get started, I’ve put some tips in a prior post.
