Some of My Puppetry Background
Q: Why do you write puppet scripts? What motivates you?
I write them for pre-school aged children to teach them to care for the environment, and to care for and understand the world they live in. Most importantly to teach social/life skills to young children in a fun way!
Q: Tell us about your church or puppet organisation.
Puppet Patch Players (PPP) was a group of people who started at Hershey Gardens Children's Garden, Hershey, PA in 2008 to entertain and educate pre-school aged children about the garden and growing things. It (PPP) coordinated with the programs offered in the Children's Garden, plants and butterflies.
Q: How did you get started in puppets and what attracted you to this area?
I loved puppets from the time I was 4 years old and got my first one. It was a character from a popular TV show in the USA called "Percy's Place" - a Kiwi bird who had a platypus friend.
Q: Where does your inspiration come from to write puppet scripts?
Watching children's faces when they see a puppet come to life as a story unfolds.
Q: What advice would you give to someone just starting out in puppetry?
Use the type of puppets you love the most, in my case hand-held, have fun with them, make them interact with the audience, and have surprise puppets that pop up, works every time!
Q: Who are your favourite puppet characters and what do you like about them?
I used mostly animal puppets that were animals that we saw in the garden. I had two people puppets, a grandfather and his granddaughter. I loved the interaction between the two people puppets with the "talking" animals.
Q: What are the most important qualities in great puppet scripts?
Keep them short and concise. Easy dialogue with humor and audience interaction. You need to have action with the puppets for preschoolers or you will lose them.
Q: What would you do if you were a puppet?
I would make little children laugh and learn things at the same time. I would show them how much fun it is to sing, laugh, and interact with other puppets.
