Shadow Puppet Theatre

We build this shadow puppet theatre for 4 Advent dramas at our Church.  Each of the four Sunday’s in Advent was a different part of the Nativity story.  Week one was the three Kings following the star, week two were the Shepherds traveling, week three was Joseph and Mary on the road to Bethlehem and Christmas Eve will be the birth of Christ.  I’ve always been interested in Shadow theatre and this was a great opportunity to tinker with it.  Emily and I built the frame from PVC pipe and the curtains were made from some curtains that came from my home Church.  It’s a very old Church and they used to hang in the origanal sanctuary.  I managed to save them years ago when they remodeled and they’ve been in a cedar trunck ever since.  I decided what better way to pay tribute to that history than to use them in my storytelling and in Churches everywhere.
