Well conceived and mounted puppet shows will enthrall young audiences. The children may even think your "actors" are real!

Don't try to memorize an entire play. Instead, attach your script to the wall in front of you just below the stage floor. Keep one eye on the script and the others on the characters.

The stage should be attractive and colorful, and designed for easy assembly and disassembly. It should also be sized to your dimensions, so you'll be comfortable when you sit or stand inside it.

You may also want to procure several "mouth" puppets to add variety to your shows.

After the show, the youthful viewers will be delighted by a chance to meet the "cast."
