Besides my Puppet shows and puppet making workshops, I now have hand crafted puppet theatres and puppets for sale. Available to kindergartens, schools, anyone. Sometimes in stock, mostly made to order, so please allow a few weeks before it is required. (The white space at the front will be personalised with your details.) So far they can be found at Warragul Primary, Trinity Grammar, Williamstown Primary, and two at Glenroy Central Primary.
Three puppet theatre designs are currently available, ‘Rainbow’ or ‘White’. ‘Traditional’ is SOLD OUT. LIMITED EDITION: ONLY TWO THEATRES REMAIN, no more to be made!
The theatres include a set of puppets and two simple bits of scenery to show ways students can create their own. One of these is designed as a front curtain. Designed for children from 3 -15 years and older. FULLY PORTABLE which means it can easily be taken from one classroom to the next. No loose parts (except scenery and puppets). Includes hooks inside to hang puppets and scenery, and also clips to place notes/scripts. Also includes blackboard paint on the front so that the time of show and show title can be altered as necessary. Delivered for free when a puppet show is booked, otherwise on arrangement. A full operating built in curtain that rolls up and down can be added at further cost (see below).
Size when unfolded: 210cm (H) X 100cm (W) X 50cm (D)
Size when folded: 150cm (H) X 100cm (W) X 14cm (D)
Cost $880 (OR ADD $165 for a fully functional built in curtain.)
“Excellent. John was great with the children, they enjoyed his humour. They responded well to the jokes and the storyline in the plays. It was great for them to learn about how the theatre worked, and how the puppets are made as well. Excellent voices, background artistry, puppetry, music, and lighting. The children and staff thoroughly enjoyed the show. John had a lovely manner with the children. WE LOOK FORWARD TO MAKING MORE FUTURE BOOKINGS! 10/10”
In 2002, I wrote a script for students entitled “Mr Punch Goes to Lunch”
