Every puppet needs a stage, so the Art Cabin Crew have been very busy over the last few weeks putting together a theatre. We made ours using a fridgefreezer box, applying acrylic paint to create the red background and sponging on the white stripes. Polyboard was cut into decorative curves to create the pelmet. A velvet fabric curtain was stuck on the inside roof and the front to give that authentic Punch and Judy theatre look.
This box needs to be tough so I used a glue gun to stick the pelmet and curtains onto the box.
Insider knowledge tells me that a puppet performance of the X Factor may be shown on ‘Talent Contest Day’ …. can’t wait for that then!
