Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Puppeteer slang


 
I always thought the "playboard" referred to the shelf at the front of a  
hand or rod puppet stage.
 
shake it and take it - a gig you're doing for money and expect no  artistic 
reward (like a 2 year old's birthday party when you're scheduled  between the 
jumpy thing and the clown)
 
blacks - black clothing often worn by puppeteers
 
in the open - the puppeteer performs with no masking, so that the audience  
can see you
