Editorial Reviews

Review

“It's ingenious.”—The New Yorker, Book Bench

“Something magical.”—The Baltimore Sun, Read Street

From the Inside Flap

"To be or not to be, that is the question."

"Friends, Romans, countrymen: lend me your ears."

"We are such stuff as dreams are made on, rounded with a little sleep."

Go on. You know you want to. Who can resist the impulse to strike a pose and recite those well-known lines, or any of a hundred others?

Now you can perform the most famous scenes in literature anytime, anywhere. Masterpuppet Theatre provides everything you need to mount your own Shakespearean production: a 96-page Folio of classic scenes and dialogue from the Bard's best-loved plays; a dozen scenic backdrops to dress your sets; and sixty illustrated Character Cards portraying the legendary lovers, murderers, kings, and commoners that inhabit Shakespeare's realms.

This came today. What a TERRIFIC little set! Great fun, and a nice playful intro for kids of all ages. And would you believe it comes with a hilarious in-joke: among the 60 impressive puppet character cards, one is of an Elizabethan robot called 2B-R02B. "Seriously." Really nice graphics throughout. And by using the bottom of the box as a stage floor, you can set up the curtain and sets to stage your own great scenes from the play scripts, or to improvise. I'm sure some of your friends will do a chorus kick line for the curtain call. Mine did. They're eight and 55 years old.

WHAT IS THIS DAGGER I SEE BEFORE ME! Check it out! You can download lots of extra fun stuff here, including a wooden plank stage floor, props, weapons, horses, and extra foliage:

I purchased two of these as gifts to recent college graduates. I was impressed with them. I've heard from my friends how much they enjoy "playing" with them. So much joy for such a small price.

I have two 8-year-old nieces who love this Masterpuppet Theatre set, and so I am back to buy more.
Promotes creative play! No batteries required!

This set was priced well for the entertainment value it has with my drama students. We are improvising the puppets for "The Taming of the Shrew" since it only contains a few of them, but it will have more main characters for "Julius Caesar" when we study it later this year in English class. It's a fun, affordable way to engage your students with Shakespeare!
