Official PayPal Seal

Kids Around the World is a Christian organization that believes that churches around the world want to embrace the children of their community with the love of God. They take our puppet stages on many of their mission trips to train church workers in foreign countries to use puppetry to reach children. They leave puppets, a stage, and a sound system with these churches overseas so that these churches are fully equipped to minister to children using puppets. Please click on the image above to visit their website. It's a tremendous ministry.

Deluxe Puppet Show Stage

The deluxe puppet stage was designed for larger teams to allow maximum performance area and maintain portability for mission trips. Its quick setup makes it perfect for any use, indoors or out. It's made of lightweight PVC and folds for easy storage and transport. It can be set up and taken down each in less than three minutes. The curtain is made of a durable denim or cotton blend and can be removed for washing. The backdrop is removable and can be stored inside the folded stage.  It's unlike any other PVC puppet stages you've seen.

Each stage is personally handcrafted to ensure the same quality in every stage.

Price: $495 plus shipping and handling for PVC puppet stage with curtains. Shipping and handling is $75.00* in the 48 contiguous states. Please inquire for shipment prices outside the 48 states before placing your order.

Allow 3-6 weeks for delivery.

*Shipping price change - I really hate to go up on prices but I've been losing money on shipping for the past year. UPS prices have really jumped.

The inside performance area of the stage is 6' 5" wide x 2' 8" deep with a second tier performance area that is 10' 8" wide. The first tier is 54" high and the second tier is 5'7" high. This stage can support 3 to 4 performers on the inside (comfortably) while supporting as many as 5 performers on the second tier. The inside area of the stage can be reconfigured to give more depth allowing more performers. The wings on either side of the stage allow you more room to spread out your team and props behind the stage.

Testimonials

We made our booth out of denim as in your plans, but was able to find purple denim which I think looks GREAT.  The denim is so much more sturdy and durable than most any other puppet booth material I’ve seen.  We LOVE it.  In fact your WHOLE design invites one to use a little imagination and ingenuity to take it to more convenience.  You can’t imagine how many times we bless you as we use our puppet booth.  I hope that any of the improvements we made will bless you back!

Thank you so much for your help. The stage arrived today and is beautiful. It is just perfect for what we need.  We had rehearsal tonight and it worked out great!!  Again I thank you for your concern and helpfulness.  God will surely bless you and your ministry. God lead me to your website for this stage.  We are so thrilled with it.

C.B., Lowell, IN.


Did I ever get back to you to thank you for the terrific stage, and for sending it so quickly in time for Good Friday? Gee, if I missed getting a thank you out to you, please accept my apology. That stage is going to be really special for us!

T.D., Sneads Ferry,  NC


Thank you so much for completing my puppet stage so quickly.  I received the stage on Tuesday but did not get a chance to put it together until today.  It is very easy to assemble, even I could figure it out!  I will be using it on Sunday, with 4th and 5th grade students. We will be practicing for a presentation on March 11th.  I have written a script for Noah's Ark.  It should be cute as it is also a musical. What could be better than singing puppets.  I am also planning a puppet presentation for Children's Sunday (sometime in June) I am interested in your Zacchaeus script and will contact you in the near future.

Pre-recorded Scripts (CD only)

Zacchaeus

Zacchaeus is just what it sounds like, the story of a tax collector who cheats people out of their money and then climbs the sycamore tree to see Jesus. Jesus does not actually appear; his view is blocked from the audience and Zacchaeus by a large crowd of puppets. His voice is heard as he calls to Zacchaeus to come down. 

This script can include a large number of puppeteers to help with the crowd scene or a few puppeteers each having two puppets. We have performed this script with as few as five puppeteers and still managed a large, effective crowd scene.

We have both a long version and short version so that you can choose a skit appropriate to the time available.

4 unique characters and 8 or more crowd members, approximately 10+ minutes (long version), 7+ minutes (short version)


Daniel

Daniel is our latest skit. The emphasis is on trust in God. There is a king who uses big words that most of the people can't understand; a crier is present to translate for the common people. Tivel, and his mute sidekick Respin, trap the king into creating a law that Daniel is forced to break. Daniel is about to have a close encounter with a den of lions.

The opening and closing scenes have a crowd that includes at least 9 characters. A small team can accomplish this by having some puppeteers work two puppets at the same time.

We have both a long version and short version so that you can choose a skit appropriate to the time available.

10 unique characters, approximately 10+ minutes (long version), 7+ minutes (short version)

 

The practice versions of the scripts are seamless multi-track recordings that allow you to restart at the beginning of a specific scene or run through the entire script non-stop. Each scene is represented by a separate track.

The CD includes:
    Daniel (long version, single track)
    Zacchaeus (long version, single track)

    Daniel (short version, single track)
    Zacchaeus (short version, single track)

    Daniel (practice, long version, multiple tracks)
    Zacchaeus (practice, long version, multiple tracks)

    Daniel (practice, short version, multiple tracks)
    Zacchaeus (practice, short version, multiple tracks)
