The puppets were made from printed out pictures of the characters and scenes, glued to a stick (as shown in picture) and the story was recorded with narration mixed with songs from “Come and See” album. Some girls were assigned to sing along while the some others played the puppets.
The children learn while they perform and during Wesak Day celebration 2008, they managed to put tears in some audience’s eyes. One of the weaknesses of this puppet show is the puppets printed. The color was not sharp and bright enough and many couldn’t see from behind. We can improve on that in future.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has chipped in their effort to make it work. To the principle of SDS and facilitators, I’m proud of our team spirit. It’s always a pleasure to work with all of you. To Cheng Sim and Mrs. Yong, thank you both for helping out. Without the two of you, the show would not go on so smoothly.
