Keith has made some films to help you create ideas for what your characters should look like and how to make a storyboard to turn your story into theatre.

There are three different types of puppets for you to try: hand or sock puppets, puppets that move like Shadow puppets and for KS2, marionettes on strings. There is also a film on how to make a backdrop and build a simple theatre out of cardboard.

Get your creative juices flowing and have fun!
