About Booking Puppet Shows
Puppets can make for wonderful entertainment at a variety of events, from kids' birthday parties to corporate events. A puppeteer can operate a puppet indirectly by the use of strings, rods, wires, electronics or directly by his or her own hands. Some puppet styles are so intricate (or so large!) that they require puppeteers to work together as a team to maneuver a single puppet character.
So what steps do you take to hire a puppet show? First, find a puppet show that both you and your child are excited about. For example, what kind of puppets do you want? What story do you want to be portrayed? Next, view online media. Lots of puppeteers have photos or video demos provided on their websites. And lastly, pay attention to detail. Inquire about specifics. Like will you need to provide any a certain amount of space? Follow these tips to bring your event to life!
