I've been asked by a local school here in Thailand to build a puppet theatre. After doing a little research on the net, I came up with this design.
I played a bit on the design for the foldable wings, but in the end opted for butterfly wings.
Step 1: The Mock Up
I've never made a puppet theatre, so to make sure that 2 puppeteers will be able to sit comfortably next to each other, I made a mock up with a box I had laying around the house. Amazingly, it appears to be the perfect size for the theatre!
The front part is 130cm wide and 165cm high. The wings are each 65 cm wide.
I'm planning to use a 10 to 12mm thick wood boards.
The wings will be attached to the front by 2 hinges on each side.
The window is 110cm wide and 60cm high.
