Here's a puppet show script that's ready for children to perform. This puppet show script is based on the Aesop's Fables story of "The Fox Who Had Lost His Tail." This puppet show script is adapted especially for the puppet stage by The Creativity Institute founders, who are veteran career advertising writers and parents. The "moral of the story" of the fable is clearly brought out in this contemporary, original, humorous adaptation. The moral of "The Fox Who Had Lost His Tail" is that misery loves company.
This script requires only two speaking parts, the Fox and one other animal. But, if you have additional actors available, you can use other animal puppets to share the any animal puppet lines. The puppet show also uses the voice of an off-stage narrator, which could be a parent or child. Puppet show length is approximately 2 1/2 - 3 minutes.
Also included with this puppet show script is a set of puppet show stage directions
that The Creativity Institute put together to help parents and children stage more professional and enjoyable puppet shows, such as tips on moving mouths (almost everybody does it backwards), simulating walking, etc.
NOTE: THIS SCRIPT WILL BE EMAILED AS A PDF FILE. (THAT'S WHY SHIPPING IS FREE.)
