Brooklyn Theatre Arts High School Receives Rose Brand Curtain

Jacob Coakley

Brooklyn Theatre Arts High School won Rose Brand’s Rags to Riches contest with a video that playfully described their need for a new main curtain sung to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from the 1965 film “The Sound of Music.” Rose Brand installed the prize this fall, a new main curtain made up of custom-dyed 25 oz. Prestige fabric with 100% Box Pleats. It meets all flame retardancy requirements, making sure that the stage not only looks good, but is safe for students.
