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.

Even if you do not have a production or technical background, you will be able to understand how to go about making each system through clear descriptions and drawings.

All designs can be made easily without a professional workshop or machining although you will need to cut, drill, saw and sew items that are readily available at good hardware stores.
