Fist Puppetry.
Milligan, David Fredrick
This book suggests ways to incorporate fist puppets into children's theater activities. Chapters discuss logical places for puppets (including, among others, schools, clubs, community and civic centers, and hospitals), the fist puppet and how it is operated, selection and adaptation of plays for puppets, and making puppets, costumes, puppet booths, and scenery. Guidelines for the production of a puppet show are presented; ten plays, including "Jack and the Beanstalk,""Rip Van Winkle," and "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," are reproduced in their entirety. In addition, a bibliography is included of stories and plays that can be readily adapted for puppets. (KS)
