Bardolph.

Along with a bigger, dramatic piece (The Peasant and the Dragon),I’ve been working on getting a simple show with smaller puppets and a smaller stage together for schools and libraries. Its in three parts–Dinky Donkey and his drawing first, then Gwinkul and OhNose, and I’ve been straining my brain trying to come up with the third part–it still may be something interchangeable, but one idea I have is for this dog puppet, Bardolph. He’s blue and white and somewhat shaggy, and I think I may have him have a little pair of glasses he can lift up and down. You see, Bardolph  is supposed to be teaching an obedience class and he begins to call roll: “Fluffy! Spot! Bowser!” and realizes nobody is answering. Then he looks at his audience and realizes it’s a bunch of human kids! So he decides to simply go on and teach the class anyway. I think the kids would get a blast out of getting to get up out of their chairs and essentially play a game of Simon Says..”Sit! Speak! Stay!”
