COVID-19 Update — On March 31st our county ordered all non-essential businesses to remain closed until Sunday, May 3rd in order to help slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our community.  For more details, see our official announcement of the original March 16th county order.

While our team continues to work remotely from home, our phone line now goes directly to voicemail.  In an emergency, please contact us at

At this time, we are scheduled to resume full operations on Monday, May 4th.  However, this may occur earlier/later based on guidelines from healthcare professionals.

Stage Curtains

Whether you need a complete package with installation or just a replacement drape, Musson can help with all your custom drapery and rigging needs.  We've tapped into our decades of expertise to give an overview of common terms below.

Fabric Colors & Details

Theatrical draperies are usually made with a velour fabric, which comes in a range of colors and styles detailed in the links below.  We generally recommend Synthetic Velour since it resists tearing and is inherently flame retardant.  Alternate fabric is also available, however they have reduced color and style options (use our Request Form to see all options).
