Also detailed is a collection of six designs for simple manual curtain drop methods and designs that can be adapted to any theatrical performance or special event.

The systems explained include the "World's Easiest" Drop, "The Peel" Drop, "The Pull" Drop, "Pin & Loop" Drop, "Pull Back" Drop and "Roll & Drop" Drop.

Each Kabuki Drop system includes measurements as well as detailed step-by-step instructions on what you need to get and how to put it together.
