WIDT is in need of replacing the FOREST SCENE BACKDROP used in THE NUTCRACKER and other productions, like Giselle, where a forest scene is appropriate. Our current Forest Scene Backdrop had a gaping tear that had to be sewn leaving a pucker in a tree, the paint is cracking and peeling showing the storage folds, and the several layers of painted repairs made over the years makes the backdrop enormously heavy. To replace this backdrop costs between $5,000 and $9,000 depending on the vendor and materials. As it currently stands, the Board has budgeted for the $5,000 replacement.
You can adopt this backdrop by donating $1,000 or more for its manufacture and get your name listed in the WIDT Production Playbill every show your backdrop appears.
