|This production requires a space 21 feet wide and a ceiling height of 11 feet.|
|For the stage, we bring in our two corner flats, and all our curtains and poles wrapped up in a roll. Our Puppets, props and backdrops are contained in large wooden boxes.|
|Next, we use tripods and our wooden prop bar to create a skeleton for the stage.|
|The curtains are hung, and our stage is created. Our Puppeteers hide behind this curtain and hold the puppets up in the air to be viewed by the audience.|
|We raise our proscenium and backdrop up eleven feet in the air.|
|Our scenery is prepared, the children come in, and the puppet show begins!|
Puppets are viewed at height
of 6 ft. Stage is 21 ft. wide.
Backdrop proscenium is 11 ft.
We prefer to set up on the floor in
front of stage.
(puppeteers are not visible to your audience)
