In Drama I learned about puppetry and I did a puppet show in a group. We need to plan out the script and the scene. We also need to make our own puppet using some materials. Our group chose a legend story that was originally from Japan. It is called the legend of monkey and the crab. In the puppet show we need show the moral of the story and use a different tone of voices.
Here is how my puppet looks like. I put on three chopstick at the back of the puppet, to make it long so that it easier for me to hold while I was talking. (I took off the chopstick after the presentation because it was a little bit long.)
I interest the audience by changing the intonation of my voice since I am the narrator. While I am talking, I moved my character in a up and down to show an effect that the narrator is up on the cloud.
My best skill was using the intonation of my voice because from that, I could attract the audience attention because I don’t want them to get bored. I think i can improve on my pronunciation of the words because in some parts I got stucked and don’t know how to continue the words again.
I should improve on the movements of the character because while I was talking, I realise that the character starts to get unstable. I think I could improve on that by focusing a on what I am doing. I also could probably improve that by putting a marking point on where the character should always be.
Another group which was captivating was the Hubby Chubby Gus because their all of their puppets looks really cool and their story also is really good. They also show how the character would sound like and that makes it really good. They also have a lot of good and interesting props for their character.
