One-person Puppetry Streamlined and Simplified

Front Cover
American Library Association, 2005 - Performing Arts - 168 pages
Most guides to puppetry assume multiple puppeteers, large stage, elaborate props, custom-designed puppets and more. With library staffing and budgets stretched thin, and other curricular commitments for teachers, few have the time or resources to develop full-blown puppet performances. Expert author Frey provides a much-needed puppet alternative to enrich story times, book talks, and other library events for children of all ages. Over the course of 20 years, she has perfected nontraditional shortcuts that make solo amateur puppetry painless, cost-effective--and fun! Children's librarians, teachers, pre-school programs, even parents and home-schoolers can entertain their audiences using this simple proven system.
