Piano Turned Puppet TheaterFebruary 13th, 2009 in member junk
I had an old piano that I needed to get out of our house. Well it only made it to the basement. I love puppets and came up with the idea to convert it into a puppet theater. I planned on the kids using the key bed area to place props like cardboard trees and such. None of our productions have been that grand. They really have a lot of fun with it. The bottom of the piano could be used for marionettes if you put it up on a platform (which I haven't) I even put hooks in around the stage for lights to hang.
I don't have any specific instructions except that it will take A LOT of elbow grease to bang apart and then you still have to get rid of the sound board. I painted it all in black lacqer and used the bench behind for the kids to sit on to give their shows.
I still have the keys, pedals, and other boards I removed just waiting to be "upcycled" I'm open to ideas!
