Publisher Comments:

In this informative volume, a master puppeteer shares his expertise in the variety of behind-the-scenes skills involved in bringing puppets to life. Drawing on years of experience, George Latshaw conducts readers through every stage of the puppeteer's art, from simple, preparatory hand exercises to advice on performing before an audience.

Following a brief retrospective of the fascinating ancient art of puppetry, Latshaw offers clear, abundantly illustrated suggestions for preparing for a performance, explains how to construct several types of puppets, and presents a series of exercises that promote the development of distinctive voices for characters and the translation of human body language into puppet movement. Readers will also find a wealth of expert advice on designing stages and puppet environments, writing and adapting plays, and directing productions. A chapter on performance-related tips features helpful hints on scheduling, setting up, handling hecklers, and making an exit that's both efficient and graceful.

A splendid addition to any puppeteer or puppet-lover's library, this profusely illustrated guide will also serve as an effective reference book in schools, libraries, and civic organizations involved in theatrical productions.
