Theatre of Hand Puppets
"Theatre of Hand Puppets" is more than instructions for making hand puppets. It is about creating puppet theatre which engages the emotions and intellect of audiences. Drawing on his fifty-plus years as a full-time, professional puppeteer, Luman Coad, co-founder with his late wife Arlyn of Coad Canada Puppets, explains the principles and process they used for their award-winning work. The book has two goals: to pass on the hard-earned knowledge, and to challenge puppeteers to create great theatre.
"...a potent concentrate of valuable advise and insight, delivered simply, clearly, and concisely."
