Puppet Inventory

Stages Available in Education Library

Sometimes a table or desk will do for a stage, and sometimes you seriously need a puppet stage. The Rutherford Library currently has three puppet stages: two for the table top and one free-standing that you can hide behind!

All three are normally located in the puppet area.  However, if you cannot find one & it is not signed out, check in the Curriculum Media area under the call number.

Portable Performance Stage

Created by Presto Stage, US

  ◊ 8ft wide x 6ft high x 2ft deep
  ◊ 20in high curtains are 3ft 6in wide
  ◊ made of aluminum, plastic and fabric
  ◊ 20lbs to carry, travels in a duffle bag

This black fabric-wrapped stage is amazing, and best for puppets up to 18 inches in height. One to three adults could fit behind the stage.

Do plan to spend about 5 minutes putting the stage together. It is easy, but takes a bit of time to get the corners right.

Tabletop Stages

Created by Guide Craft, US

  ◊ 24in wide x 28in high x 6in deep
  ◊ 16in high curtains, splits in the middle
  ◊ made of wood and fabric
  ◊ 9lbs to carry, travels flat

This tidy stage just sits on a table and easily opens for use.
