Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An expert conducts readers through every stage of the puppeteer's art, including how to construct several types of puppets, developing distinctive voices for characters, and translating human body language into puppet movement. Other chapters focus on designing stages, writing and adapting plays, directing productions, and performance-related tips. Over 150 black-and-white illustrations.

Synopsis:

This volume by a master puppeteer provides all the information needed to bring a puppet successfully to life, from simple preparatory hand exercises, to advice on performing before an audience. Following a brief retrospective of this fascinating theatre art, the clear, abundantly illustrated text considers the role of the puppeteer and preparing for a performance, how to create various types of puppets and master a character's body language, the importance of developing strong, clear voices for characters, designing stages and puppet environments, writing or adapting plays, and more. A splendid addition to any puppeteer or puppet-lover's library, this useful guide will also serve as an effective reference book in schools, libraries, and civic organizations involved in theatrical productions.
