Hi Everyone,

   	When we designed our PVC stage, the curtain was designed 
similar to a "kitchen curtain."  You just simply slide the curtain 
over the upper PVC pipe. This eliminates the hassle of deciding what 
type of glue will work best to affix velcro to PVC.  If you use a 
playboard with your PVC pipe stage, sew a buttonhole or make a slit in
the fabric large enough to insert the hinges of your playboard.  We 
use two different stages...a wooden one and also a PVC pipe stage.
   I prefer using a wooden stage.  It is by far much easier
to use both a playboard and prop board with a wooden stage...and also 
easier to have some type of hook inserted into the wood to have your 
puppets within reach as well as an additional board for your tape 
deck.  The question of attaching a curtain to a wooden stage is a
snap with velcro simply stapled into the wood.
