1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Large-headed Popes, Kings and Puppets aplenty! Investiture made fun. on: December 16, 2006 09:58:19 AM
So, for this school performance project about the investiture struggle I decided to put on a puppet show with some friends. I don't really many in-the-process pics because we were kinda pinched for time. These little guys took the better part of a weekend to make, not including the initial paper-mache. I wish I had pictures of the little puppet theater that we made. It was really nice and folded up. First post so comments welcome.

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Buiding a puppet theater on: November 08, 2006 10:01:19 AM
So, as part of a school project, I am putting on a puppet show. We're making Punch and Judy style glove puppets and I was wondering if anyone here had any insights into making the stage. I know it's a rather uncommon endeavor but considering the incredible talent here at Craftster and general craftiness, I thought I'd ask.
I have no previous experience in this field so simple is best.
I need the Theater to be able to:
Fit three people,
look marginally professional (not completely haphazardly stuck together),
be relatively sturdy and able to be built in the course of a weekend.
I have a folding table at my disposal that I thought I might use as the base.
