About the Book
All the world’s a stage-and with this extraordinary book-plus kit, you can dramatize the most memorable scenes in all of theatre. Contents include:
* Sixty fingerpuppet cards featuring Shakespeare’s most famous characters, including Hamlet, Lady Macbeth, King Lear, Othello, Shylock, and Falstaff
* Twelve stand-up sets of castles, forests, balconies, and battle fields
* A 96-page “folio” of classic scenes-from Hamlet’s “To Be or Not to Be” soliloquy to Romeo and Juliet’s classic balcony serenade
Once you’ve finished staging the Bard’s entire canon, you can mix and match masterpuppets to produce your own Shakespearean mash-ups. Perhaps your Romeo will fall in love with Lady Macbeth!
