Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] wedding ideas


We've done wedding shows occasionally over the last 30 years. We adapt the 
"frog prince" using a wizard who's had bad luck in love turning the groom into a 
frog on his way to the wedding. We often just take a photo of the bride and 
groom and make them two dimensional rod puppets ( good wedding present as well) 
. The bride has a witch friend ... and well you know ... if anyone would 
actually like to use the script they're welcome to contact me off list. It's sort 
of a "Mad Libs" script with blanks to fit the couple. We haven't done it in a 
few years partly because we've grown out of the marryin' years and partly 
because over 50% of the marriages ended up divorced and we didn't want to be part 
of a jinx!  It was a huge hit every time we did do it though... very few 
people can say that they'd been to a wedding with a puppet show so it adds a lot of 
energy to the reception. My wife and I actually had an abstract show we had 
written as part of our church ceremony in addition to the homily that was also 
very well received. I've got an idea for a funeral show but no one's expressed 
an interest yet. Guess I'll have to wait for my own!
