Successful Punch & Judy (New Edition)
30 new colour pictures have been added to this best seller along with a few significant text revisions and its no longer spiral bound. This 106 page handbook is based on the author's 50 years of performing experience and his many courses teaching the skills involved. How to put a show together, speak with Punch's voice, perform tried and tested routines and make the puppets and the stage. There is also a contemporary script, a brief history of the show and a particularly good insight into Punch's character and how to get in tune with it. This book has become the standard work on the theory and practice of the Punch & Judy Show. "With wit and charm Prof Glyn Edwards, one of the world's great Punch 'Professors', has turned out a Punch and Judy manual as energetic as his performances. It is an indispensable reference for the beginner and a delight to Punch enthusiasts. A bible for those wishing to start or improve their own show" (Puppeteers of America Journal). "An affirmation of the 350 year old endurance of the UK's national puppet, intelligently divided into well-organised topics with thoughtful quotes and helpful tips to pepper every page. It is Edward's no nonsense, down-to-earth approach that makes this book so charming." (Puppetry International).
