Ahh... ok I see now you mentioned that in your first post... Duhhh.  Will you be able to see the folks in the "audience"? I've built puppet booths before that have a thin piece of fabric that I could see through and see the folks out front.

The reason I ask this is that often a crowd at a place like this would be there for a very short time so a scripted play might not work as well as if you could see the folks out front and kind of talk to them with the puppets.  It takes some practice to perform like this so you might not be ready for that step but something to keep in mind.

Also in order for the whole see through the fabric thing to work you need an inclosed booth that you are working in so that it is dark on the inside. Otherwise they can also see you. Smiley

1st Day-Mr. Shawn, I had some hard time with the theater today.  People can see me from the front.  Sideways left and right, no.  I just need to duck myself good enough to hide.  Got some good tips though.  :O)

Good on you squirrely. I hope it all goes well. I am in the  middle of a round of auditions, which is the first  time for me. I got past the first round, which is suprising since spanish is not my first language. We┬┤re down to 9, and they have to cull another 4, for the  client to then select 1. I feel like factor X or some Xcountry has got talent, show.

Day 3-I think I went good with Cricket and Miranda (puppets) Kids laughed and talked with them as if real.  Poked them and wanted the puppets to bite them too.  Kids laughed and to make them enjoy the show was the make the puppets growl and scream a bit.  Kids liked it.  One girl came back and forth to talk and ask questions.  She was a sweet girl.  Doing this today, was better practice and better work.
