I'm almost finished with my Christmas party puppet shows for the season. You know those shows where the guests have had a meal ,then they have Santa ,then they have presents, then they have the magician and then they have the puppet show, where upon they procede to act like a bunch of wild maniacs. Here is a short list of the things I dread about these shows. Feel free to add your items to the list.
1. Adults with their cameras all over my stage during the show to get a picture of their little darlings face watching the show.[ No puppets in the picture]
2. kids running around completly out of control and not an adult in sight.
3. clueless adults talking at the top of their lungs.[In my case sometimes coming up to me during the show to ask for a business card, or to find out if I do Birthday parties]
4. The sponsor coming backstage to ask" how much longer does this show last?" [ read your contract lady it says the show is 30 minutes]
5.. add your own to the list
