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).
