3rd Annual Puppet Playwriting Contest


Fever River Puppeteers'
3rd Annual Puppet Playwriting Contest
Tell us a story and we'll turn it into a puppet show!  The winner or winners will see their story performed on stage at the Hazel Green Opera House.
HELPFUL HINTS FOR BUDDING PLAYWRIGHTS
A puppet show - like any play or other story - needs:
Characters: Who? A hero, heroes or heroines (good guys) and a villain or villains (bad guys).
Setting:  When and where?  A time and a place.
Plot:  What? How?  Suddenly, something happens!  And then the good guy does something.  Don't just make your puppet characters talk.  Make them do stuff.                                                        Ending:  How it all turns out.  Wrap it up.
