Ever get the itch to perform Shakespeare via finger puppets on miniature dioramas in your living room? Well today is your lucky day! May I introduce Masterpuppet Theatre, a “unique” kit of 60 finger puppets and 12 backgrounds featuring the Bard’s most famous characters, allowing you to perform nearly every scene imaginable. Once you stage the entire canon, you can mix and match masterpuppets to produce your own Shakespearean mash-ups. Two “wilde” cards allow you to even create characters of your own! Don’t worry, a 96-page folio is included with excerpts from classic scenes, in case you forgot to memorize your lines.
