Make puppets out of easily available materials (stuffed animals, doll heads, papier mache). Learn stage secrets for warming up. Plan for a streamlined tale - performed by just a couple of characters, supplemented with a narrator. fractured fairy tales, folk tales from around the globe (Japan, Tibet, Russia, Arabia) and adaptations of Aesop's Fables. Also plan for entertaining patter between these short plays - songs, parodies, jokes, riddles, and the large puppet that can serve as the introducer.
