Beacon NY Puppet Slam Auditions/Call at The Beacon

July 17, 2011 at 7pm to July 18, 2011 at 7pm
4th Wall Productions / The Beacon Theatre will hold auditions and a collaborative idea workshop for their September Puppet Slam to be held during their inaugural Puppet Weekend. A puppet slam is an evening of puppet shows in short-form [or skits]. These skits can be any subject and cover the theatrical range from drama, comedy, musical or even film. While some acts can be professional and performance ready, others may be experimental or raw. Though not always ‘blue’ or ‘gritty’, puppet slams…See More

New puppet show on bullying needs help

I'm trying to reach as many people as quickly as possible to get the word out as I'm very passionate about this project. "Helping Drew" is an original puppet musical that deals with the subject of bullying. I'm producing this show and it will be available for K-5 elementary school assemblies by this September. One last piece of the puzzle is to get it professionally recorded. While school budgets continue to be drastically cut, this will enable us to maintain a discounted cost to schools and…See More

New Puppets

I had some issue with my last puppet Gustavo because I didn't like my stitching on his mouth. I went back and covered over the stitching with a new mouth plate - added the tongue and I was good. I worked on my next puppet Geraldine over the last 2 weekends and completed her today. Her shirt may change. I wanted something that matched the girly look of the tutu but, settled for this little sweatshirt because it was only a dollar at Target.…

Hey thanks for the comments the eyes are actually made from a racket ball cut in half. I think the "odd shape comes from the way I made the eyelids. I actually thought i had messed them up but I turned the eyes a bit and realized that they looked okay the way they were. I am using project puppet patterns....the mouse body is made from the mostro pattern and the arms are the simple series arms with the forma series hands. I also shrunk them on my copy machine. The head was made from a scooter pattern i found online. I had to enlarge the original pattern I found and then create a mouthplate that would work. Im still experimenting ....trying to really figure out how to make my own patterns.
