From our 26 series, 26F and 26G (New York Times Square)

We have an extensive collection of scenic backdrops available for rent.

Backdrops rent for $350.00* base rate per week, plus freight. All rental periods are based on the time out of our studio. Please call our rentals staff for longer term discounts and availability.

Our backdrops sizes are noted in the catalog along with a brief description, and approximate shipping weights. Most of our scenic backdrops are 43'w x 20'h, sized to fit most theatres, performance spaces, and special events venues. We also offer some of these backdrops in 30'w x16'h for smaller venues, such as churches and smaller theatres. Our rental backdrops are designed to be used indoors only.

We can now set up all shipping and return service using our UPS online system.
All shipments via UPS, including scenic backdrops and other theatrical supplies, can be tracked directly "door to door" using our "Schell Track" order feature.

Our staff is available to help you any way we can, to make your next production a truly special event. Feel free to call us for more information, as we are constantly adding new drops to our collection.

Please call us for rentals availability during our regular business hours, or use this online fill-in form to submit our Request for a Quotation.

Our backdrops can be folded and packaged by just two people, and are easily shipped nationwide. (If you'd like to know the secret, click here.)
