The Falcon Banner has posted a new item, 'Shakespearean Puppet Competition
at Northern Oaken War Maneuvers
Crazy Llyw and Lady J, proprietors of the infamous Magic Carpet Kavehane,
invite all those fond of creating alter-egos out of inanimate materials to
test their mettle against their fellow artisans in the first-ever (to our
knowledge) *Shakespearean Puppet Competition*.
Said sawdust smack-down will happen Friday night of the Northern Oaken War
Maneuvers (presented by the Barony of Cleftlands/Shire of Falcon’s
5th, Wellington, Ohio, at O Dark Thirty. Location will be the Magic Carpet
*Rules are as follows*
- Present a song, sonnet or scene from Shakespeare (or the Shakespearean
Theater scene?) of no more than six minutes in length.
- Puppets may be of any non-hazardous material—handmade preferable,
commercial also permissible, but consult criteria below. No size limits on
puppets, however, those who wish to perform with larger than life size
puppets please contact the Impresarios well in advance of your intent.
A 3 ½ foot wide stage with a tasteful backdrop, roughly 4 feet off of the
ground will be provided.
- Scope- level of difficulty—including construction of puppets,
additional scenery, use of musical instruments, etc. If you choose to
utilize a commercial puppet, consideration will made for creative costuming
- Creativity-choice of literary material, adaptation of content and
medium, presentation–style of puppet.
- Authenticity—recognizing that the will be a need for adaptation and
editing in most cases, entry will be judged on how close the performance
comes to the style and spirit of the Elizabethan Era.
Grand Prize is still under discussion but will be—grand.
