The puppets are coming “out of the bags” again in September 2020 for another year of dancing, singing and storytelling. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, in-person rehearsals and puppet presentations are not possible. Until further notice, rehearsals will be held on ZOOM and performances will be recorded. Puppets will either be made by the puppeteers or be provided through the mail by the puppetry leaders.
Puppeteers will need to provide their email address for the ZOOM rehearsals and mailing address for the puppet mailings.
PUPPETS IN CHURCH is for children in grades 1-12 who would like to learn the arts of puppetry and apply them to music, worship, storytelling and general entertainment in the church. Puppets meet on alternate Sundays, 4:30-5:30 p.m. on ZOOM beginning Sunday, September 20th (CLICK HERE for the Combined Sunday Schedule for Puppets, HOOPS, Music, and Messy Church to see rehearsal dates)
Puppets are going into the shadows! This fall we will learn how to make and perform shadow puppetry. Each puppeteer will learn how to make a shadow puppet theater out of simple supplies and will make the characters for our puppet performance. Supplies and patterns will be made available to participants.
Our Main Project and target performance will be the Christmas eve service and telling the story of the Nativity. For this we will be combining the shadow puppetry with Lewinsville’s life-sized nativity puppets for a filmed adaptation for a Family Christmas Eve Service.
We will also be doing more ZOOM puppet performances for Messy Church and the children’s messages.
