Nick Barone Puppets brings a full theater experience to your library or school, complete with lighting and a sound system.
The puppet stage requires a performance space of 8 feet wide by 6 feet deep, with at least a 7 foot ceiling. The stage should be set up on a level surface or on an elevated platform with one standard power outlet near by. The audience should be seated at least 3 to 4 feet in front of the stage to comfortably view the performance.
More people can fit in a space when sitting on the floor rather than in chairs, especially children. A few chairs at the back or sides of the room for adults are always a good idea.
My puppet theater has its own lighting to help focus the audience's attention on the performance. Whenever possible, dim or turn off the room lights during the performance. The room does not need to be completely dark, in fact, total darkness can make some children uneasy.
For more information about setting up the puppet show, please visit the QUESTIONS page.
A puppet show at the library or school should not only entertain children, it should also educate them and get them interested in reading.
