I am working on A Christmas Carol and for one of the scenes I am wanting 3 curtains/banners (actually just a bolt of fabric about 15' x 4') located in a sort of upside down 'U' shape across the stage. My problem is that there is no fly system in this space. What I would like to achieve is some way to drop the curtains into place for the scene then release them to the floor after the scene is over. The second part being like a kabuki drop but most likely activated by the actors or stage crew (by pulling down on it.) Are there any ideas? I think I can figure out how to create the second part with some of the other post on kabuki drops, but any ideas are greatly appreciated.
