Birthday parties are a special time for children; they are in such a hurry to grow up, they look in anticipation to that magical day. Birthday parties often celebrate that event with family and friends, fun activities, and tasty treats. Why not add a puppet show to maximize the fun and create a unique experience for all your guests?
Penny's Puppet shows utilize audience participation, instill a love of music and language, and stimulate the imagination. They naturally support emotional development, improve listening skills, and develop awareness of and appreciation for the similarities in all people (and puppets).
Penny will bring her traveling puppet stage to your party along with everything else she needs for the full puppet show experience. Her travel stage measures 3 ½ by 4 feet (or a large office desk). An electrical outlet is necessary and Penny will bring an extension cord. Most homes can comfortably fit the stage in front of a fire place, but the best location will include plenty of room for guests. Downloadable Stage Dimensions (most birthdays use the small stage)
Typical length for a child’s birthday party is one to two hours. The puppet show should be scheduled approximately 30 minutes into your event; this allows time for your guests to arrive, get acquainted and visit prior to the show. Some families plan a craft (i.e. making puppets, hats or masks) prior to the pup-pet show as the children arrive. Other families let the children play and do big movement activities. It all depends on your individual needs and tastes. Puppet show performance lengths vary between 30-45 minutes.
Don’t forget to mention the pup-pet show start time on your invitations--this encourages your guests to arrive prior to the start of the show so no one misses the fun.
Things to keep in Mind:
This is a children’s birthday party, in order for everyone to have the best time performances work best when kids AND grown-ups participate in the fun! These shows are intended to be fun for all and interactive, having your child see an adult enjoying, interacting, and Role modeling makes the experience even more memorable. I require that at least 2 adults stay in the room with me but prefer more. I also ask that those adults who want to use their Cell phones or chat and catch up during the show go in another room so there is less distraction for us all. All in the name of Fun!

"Penny really knows how to draw in her audience. Even though I consider myself an adult, I became engrossed/enthralled with the puppets and story. I got lost in the story (in a good way). It was a children's production but I thoroughly enjoyed it! She really knows how to draw in the audience in a delightful way and make them part of the show -Kerry- (Mom)
