Gwynn's Fable "Trading Places" Puppet Script (Look Before you Leap) 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 ideas in the same style. Each easy-to-read, easy-to-perform puppet show script communicates an important "moral" lesson to children. These are all child-friendly puppet shows. There is no violence and no one gets eaten.

"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.

This script has speaking parts for two puppets who are on stage at the same time.

This puppet show length is approximately 2 1/2 - 3 minutes.

Also included
with this puppet show script are 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.
