Kathleen,
   The design of the puppet stage obviously depends on what sort of puppet
you will be using, and how many puppeteers will be performing. If you can
find it, 'Punch and Judy' by Fraser offers some excellent designs on the
classic tall Punch stage (very good for any kind of glove puppet). This
website often has copies: http://www.puppetbooks.co.uk/
