Subject: [Puptcrit] toy theater/shadows

Thank you Alan, I will give this information to the teacher.  May I give
him your email address so he can contact you directly if he is

And to the person asking about books on shadow theater, we recently
received a wonderful little book titled "Technik des Firurentheaters"
which appears to have been printed in 1975.  The technical drawings of
the workings of the shadows are exquisitely detailed.   If you can find
this catalog on line I think it would be of interest to you. Or if you
find yourself visiting Atlanta, please give me a call beforehand and set
an appointment to come to our library and view it.

My BILLY GOATS GRUFF shadow show is an outgrowth of home toy shadow
theatre tradition.

Pollocks Toy Theatres in London used to sell  a script for THE BROKEN
BRIDGE, a famous Shadow show in the European tradition. It has been
performed by American puppeteers.

I have taught the simple, low-cost shadow thing at several PofA Fests,
including the Tampa Fest.

Perhaps this would be of interest to the teacher contact mentioned by
Susan Kinney.

I have taught simple shadows in schools for decades as a guest teacher,
and performed for the whole age gamut from young kids to Seniors,
