This is an inexpensive professional alternative that costs less than 1/5 the price of an electronic Kabuki system.
EVERYTHING you need is provided EXCEPT the curtain that you intend to drop.
Best of all, you do not need to attach grommets to your curtain as we provide a heavy-duty drop-point header that has an industrial-strength Velcro attachment. Simply sew the corresponding Velcro strip (that we provide) to the curtain of your choice and you will be ready to go.
SINGLE & DOUBLE KABUKI DROPS
The Pro Magic Kabuki Drop System is available as a SINGLE or DOUBLE kabuki drop in a variety of lengths.
A SINGLE kabuki drop means the curtain will already be opened up in place and covering the stage. Activating the curtain drop will drop the curtain to the floor revealing what is on stage.
A DOUBLE kabuki drop means the curtain starts off rolled up and is held in place at the top of the stage proscenium (on the flying bars). Activating the curtain drop will open up the curtain so that it covers the stage. Activating the curtain drop a second time will drop the curtain to the floor revealing what is on stage.
ALL-ROUND KABUKI DROP
The Pro Magic Kabuki Drop System is also available as an all-round curtain drop. This means the curtain can surround an area to form a square or rectangular enclosure. When needed, the curtain can drop as one unit to reveal the area.
This is perfect to reveal objects, set pieces, installations, products or people when in the round.
