Puppet Stages

We performed a small skit for our church's annual "Hanging of the Green" and a woman visiting from another church asked us to come to her church and perform for them so we said, "Sure!" Our kids were very excited about the idea.

Wait, we use a castle puppet set up for children's church, we used the baptistry for the puppets in the sanctuary... we need a portable puppet stage NOW!

We looked at One Way Street and their stage was $550!!!! WithOUT curtains!!! No offense, I love those guys but we have ummmm $0 budget left over. Never fear PVC pipe is here! We headed to our local Lowe's and bought the goods (now I have to interject here and say I made one of these years ago but it, ahem, dissapeared during some church construction, ah well). Came home and within an hour, we had a stage (thanks B & L!!!), the next day we sewed some curtains out of FREE black fabric someone had donated to us and viola! We had an awesome mobile puppet stage if I do say so myself.

We used it Thursday night at the other church down the road and the folks that were there loved the show. Isn't it awesome how we're being used to bridge the gap in our community? It's a Jesus Deal and He gets ALL the glory! AMEN!

I captured a couple of pics from a short video taken the day we were building the stage.

  1. I am so amazed at how God is blessing! And you didn't even mention the wonderful Christmas gift the Krew received - 6 new full body puppets and several hand made original characters. It is so EXCITING!! Now our gift to Jesus for His Birthday is our time and talents to use these wonderful instruments to share His Good News with everyone who will listen!!!
