“Barre Town Middle and Elementary School is one of Vermont’s largest middle and elementary schools currently enrolling 867 students Pre K-8. The Barre Town community, many years ago, educated its children in small one and two-room school houses. In 1966, the community decided to merge all of these neighborhood schools into one location. The community also decided, in 1971, to expand the original building, adding much-needed space.”, courtesy of BTMES.org
BTMES gym/auditorium was in need of new stage drapery.
Gordon's to the rescue!
-Will Tommy remember the words?
-Annabelle is so shy, hope she doesn't freeze!
-I hope Parker doesn't steal the show, AGAIN!!
Just think of the little ones behind this curtain! All those butterflies & nervous, frigidity feet! Young minds desperately trying to remember the steps, the words or the lines.
Those adorable tiny, shy 'waves' to the parents, grandparents, family and friends.
The fabric selection was taken into careful consideration. Not only for the dramatic, rich aesthetic, but the need to be of inherent fire retardant quality. (you know, building codes and such)
Home of the Bobcats, BTMES' school colors are Green and White.
We selected Crescent Velvet in "Bottle Green". This rich, viridescent hue, will compliment in all dramatic Bobcat stage performances!
Box pleats with 50% fullness, lined with black, black-out fabric.
The fullness of the drapery is completely accentuated with the dramatic lighting.
The stage rigging system was something to be seen! Just look at this wooden channel, chain, rope, and buckle system?! Isn't that amazing!
We feel so lucky to be a part of this school stage Renaissance and we imagine all the wonderful performances that this drapery will be a part of.
And as they say in showbiz, "Break a leg, kiddos!"
