These puppet show scripts have parts for from two to four puppets, and some require the voice of an additional off-stage narrator. Depending on their ability, some children may be able to perform more than one role in the same show. The roles could be performed by a variety of character puppets, although the parts now are assigned to the animal puppets we also sell packaged with these scripts.
These are all child-friendly puppet shows. There is no violence and no one gets eaten.
The four puppet show scripts in this package are:
"First Things First (Don't Procrastinate)", which demonstrates the disadvantages of procrastination. Although the other animals keep encouraging their friend the monkey to join them in building sleds, the monkey chooses to put it off, and then isn't ready when the snow falls.
"Fair Offers (Cooperation)" about the value of cooperation. The animals realize that a fair in a neighboring town takes place too soon for them to travel to, unless they all pitch in using their individual capabilities. The set of scripts includes a two and four-puppet version of this script.
"Out of the Box (Imagination)" about using your imagination. Four different animals come across an empty box, and each recognizes a different use for it.
"Trading Places (Look Before you Leap)" demonstrates the reason to look before you leap. The horse hears about the attractive features of the mouse's house and insists they trade, sight unseen, only to later discover how small it is.
Also included with these puppet show scripts is a set of puppet show stage directions that The Creativity Institute put together to help parents and children stage more professional and enjoyable puppet shows, such as tips on moving mouths (almost everybody does it backwards), simulating walking, etc.
