Gwynn's Fable "Friends Are as Friends Do" Puppet Show Script (Anti-Bullying) PDF DOWNLOAD

Creativity Institute


Due to the popularity of our original adaptations of Aesop's Fables stories for the puppet stage, The Creativity Institute writers have developed new original "Gwynn's Fables" puppet show scripts in a similar style, with animal puppets communicating clear, simple lessons to children.

This puppet show script is a child-friendly story. There is no violence and no one gets eaten.

It should be noted that there are many, often contradictory, theories of how to prepare children to handle bullying. The biggest variable is the individuals involved. While none of these textbook techniques will work on some of the most hard-core bullies, the objective is to reduce the incidence of bullying by raising the awareness that it is unacceptable behavior. These are just three examples of those techniques.This original puppet show script demonstrates the positive behavior support message of how being nice gets more friends than being a bully. The Creativity Institute writers have developed these scripts to be easy to perform while communicating a valuable lesson to the children. And we've thrown in enough humor to keep it interesting.

The script has four speaking parts for the four puppets in this set. The puppet show length is approximately 2.5 - 3 minutes. Also included with this puppet show script are puppet show stage directions that The Creativity Institute has put together to help staging more professional and enjoyable puppet shows, such as tips on moving mouths (almost everybody does it backwards), simulating walking, etc.
