CREATE A FOLDER WITH A CHRONOLOGICAL LIST OF YOUR PUPPET SHOWS FOR THE DAY!
THEN JUST CLICK ON THE FILE TO START EACH SHOW!
TIP: With lights at the top of your stage on the outside of the curtain, it becomes very difficult to see puppeteers behind the curtain, while the puppeteers can see out.
Just about all computers come with a GREEN speaker output jack, a RED microphone input jack and a BLUE auxiliary input jack. Attach your speaker cable to the GREEN jack.
You can probably pickup up a small monitor that’s perfect for this at a yard sale really cheaply. Your local electronic store has monitor cable extensions to run the computer from behind the puppeteers so the operator is not in the way.
We mounted our monitor on a long wooden 2” X 2” which you can get from a local lumber supply store. By fastening a couple of old fashioned hook locks, it holds the monitor over our heads quite safely.
It’s important to remember if you are using our system, you’ll need to name your puppets individual names which are the same as the names we are using. It’s not necessary to make them look just like our puppets. You can see a complete page of all our puppets with their names by clicking here.

You can length a monitor cable if you have to by connecting 2 cables together.
