Hi!  Here are some details about myself:
My name is: Matthew Ramsey
I have a home page at:
My occupation (when I'm not doing puppets!) is: Grad student
My approximate age is: 25 - 35
I live in the state of: NH
... in the country of: USA
My photo: Matthew Ramsey
Here's some information about my church or puppetry organisation:
My organisation's name is: United Pentecostal Church
My organisation's website is at: www.upci.org   | Is this Link Broken?
Some of My Puppetry Background
Q: Why do you write puppet scripts? What motivates you?
I want to teach children (and adults) Biblical principles in entertaining ways.
Q: Tell us about your church or puppet organisation.
It's pretty small and simple. Just a couple of people who are interested in reaching children.
Q: How did you get started in puppets and what attracted you to this area?
I got started doing puppets after I went to a Sunday School Teachers conference. They had a section on puppets and I was like: oh yeah, we could do puppets. 10 years later I can't imagine NOT doing them.
Q: Where does your inspiration come from to write puppet scripts?
Inspiration comes from all sources: the Bible, books, radio stories, etc.
Q: What advice would you give to someone just starting out in puppetry?
Work on your voice. Puppets are cute and all but the audience will QUICKLY get bored if you aren't performing well with your voice (accents, excitement, annunciation, etc.). Also beginners tend to not make the puppets life-like enough. Remember that even if your puppet isn't speaking it should still be doing SOMETHING. That is, somehow reacting to whatever else is going on at the moment.
Q: Who are your favourite puppet characters and what do you like about them?
I really like the devil puppet. I got one from the Puppetshoppe and gave it a kind of New York/Broklyn accent. Of course, the best part is the fact that he ALWAYS loses.
Q: What are the most important qualities in great puppet scripts?
Humor. Dialogue that can captivate kids and adults. The way I look at it is little kids will like the puppet skit because of the puppets and the silly voices. I think that it is good to write jokes that only older kids and adults will get (but not too many). That way you reach everyone.
Q: What would you do if you were a puppet?
I would answer this question.
And here are some other scripts by me/us:

1. The Power To Overcome by Matthew Ramsey Picture available Profile available - View script

Rating: 8.3 , Votes: 6

2 puppets talk about God's power. One mistakenly thinks that the Bible says God will give us superpowers (flying, invisablity, etc.) while the other tries to explain that we get the power of the Holy Ghost--the power to overcome sin.
Keywords: God  Heaven  Holy Spirit  Pentecost  Power  Salvation  Science Fiction  Sin  Truth  
2. A Lesson On Forgiveness by Matthew Ramsey Picture available Profile available - View script

Rating: 6.8 , Votes: 2

2 puppets face a bully. The devil uses it as an opportunity to take hold of one of them and lead him down the path of sin. Finally, the puppet repents and the devil is cast out. The puppets meet up with the bully at the end and a surprising thing happens...

3. Forgiveness Or Forgetfullness? by Matthew Ramsey Picture available Profile available - View script

Rating: 6.7 , Votes: 1

An extremely silly play. A family sits down to eat but can't remember the names of anything. The anouncer finally figures out that they are practicing forgeting because Jesus forgivess AND forgets--and that's a hard thing to do.
Keywords: Confusion  Forgiveness  Fun  Jesus  
4. Powerful Gospel Illusions/magic by Matthew Ramsey Picture available Profile available - View script

Rating: 5.3 , Votes: 2

Here are 3 really powerful, easy to do illusions.
Keywords: Bible  Evangelism  Faith  Fun  God  Healing  Heart  Holy Spirit  Jesus  Love  Miracle  Power  Repentance  Sin  
5. Tree Doctor by Matthew Ramsey Picture available Profile available - View script

Rating: 3.7 , Votes: 1

Silly/humorous play about a boy who goes to a doctor who acts as if the boy is a tree (e.g., is worried about the boy's bark falling off). Can be tied in to the concept that God is the great physician and He never gets the diagnosis wrong.
Keywords: Fun  Healing  Truth  
6. Working Together by Matthew Ramsey Picture available Profile available - View script

Rating: 0.0 , Votes: 0

When 3 puppets get together to do a school project a conflict causes one of them to leave. The devil uses this as an opportunity to take that puppet into sin.
Keywords: Devil  Friendship  Pride  Repentance  Selfishness  Sin  Stealing  Temptation  Work  
7. Power From God by Matthew Ramsey Picture available Profile available - View script

Rating: 0.0 , Votes: 0

Two people/puppets. One puppet invents a hat (tinfoil) that gives energy. The results are actually disastrous/amusing. In the end, we learn that we should go to God to get our power. Could also be used as a message against drugs (e.g., our high should come from God).
Keywords: Choice  Confusion  Drug Prevention  Faith  Fun  Holy Spirit  Power  
8. Time Machine by Matthew Ramsey Picture available Profile available - View script

Rating: 0.0 , Votes: 0

Puppets in the future find the first half of the Bible and invent a time machine to go back and find out what happens in the second half. They realize that the world hasn't been living for God but that there is still hope in Jesus.
Keywords: Bible  Evangelism  Faith  Grace  Hope  Jesus  Science  Science Fiction  Truth
