Different puppet types require different display/storage systems. A muppet-type puppet, sock or mouth puppet will require a stand - usually a vertical pole or piece of wood, housed in a heavy base. Some puppet makers even use microphone stands for their puppets! In this video, I show you how to make a stand for muppet-type puppets (or sock puppets). The video includes a list of materials and tools. The following will cost you about $15 in materials and take you less than 20 minutes to make.
Disclaimer: I got two free tickets due to my recent interview with the Aussie director, Jonathan Biggins.
Amazingly enough, I know less about Avenue Q than it would seem. I’ve taken particular care to avoid watching videos or previews of the show. I’ve seen pics of the puppets before, but didn’t know anything about the storyline outside of: it’s Sesame St for adults. For those who want to hear it, my interview with the director (and some other useful links) can be found here.
Absolutely nothing. This is like asking "what’s the difference between a poodle and a dog?" Think about it - a poodle is a dog, but not all dogs are poodles. So a muppet is simple to figure out: it’s a type of puppet (usually placed under the category of ‘mouth puppets’). Not all puppets are muppets though, and not all mouth puppets are muppets. And because there’s some confusion, I’ve now added a section on the difference between marionettes and muppets.
As mentioned in a hint a few days ago, I provide an exclusive: I don’t believe anyone else in Australian media has done this, minus the Herald Sun article linked below. (But I did also say that it was pretty generic, and wouldn’t/didn’t have the info that I’ve got) Yesterday I did an interview with the director for the Australian tour for Avenue Q, Jonathan Biggins.
Australians may want to buy locally. Where? I explain here.
