How to Build Your Hallows' Eve Paper Theatre Kit

Thank you for bringing a piece of theatre home with you. We are so excited for you to build your own theatre and hear all the stories you come up with!

MATERIALS

  • Scissors or Exacto knife (adults only please!)
  • Gluestick
  • Ruler

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Cut out all pieces along the solid cut lines. Make sure to also cut the slits marked on A, C, D, E, and H.

2. Use a ruler and the point of your scissors or an exacto knife to gently score along all the dotted fold lines

in C, D, F, and G. This means pressing down gently as you run the blade along the fold line (without cutting through) so you make a groove, which will help you fold the paper more easily.

3. Fold all fold lines on C and D forwards.

4. Add gluestick to the left hand tab on C. Place D on top of the tab so the image lines up, and press firmly to glue.

5. Add gluestick to the three bottom tabs on C and D. Place the upper edge of B on the centre tab and press

down firmly. Fold up both sides of C and D so they are standing upright. Slide the tabs under the edges of B and press firmly to glue along each side. You should now have a stage floor with an upright backdrop.

6. Slide E onto the upstage (further back) slots in the backdrop.

7. Slide A onto the downstage (further forward) slots in the backdrop.

8. Fold the tab on top of W forward. Add gluestick to the back of the tab. Glue W onto the stage floor with the tab upstage so the hole in the floor is concealed beneath a trap door.

9. Fold the fold lines on Q, R, S, T, and U backwards so they can stand upright on their own and be placed on the stage floor as desired.

10. Add gluestick all over the back of I, N, L, and P. Before gluing the two sides of each puppet together, add the puppet sticks you cut out for X to the back of each puppet. Make sure the puppet stick is coming straight out the top of the puppet. Then glue on J, M, O, and K, sandwiching the puppet sticks between the two sides of each puppet.

11. Fold all fold lines on F and G forward. In order to change the backdrop, slide F or G in front of the existing

backdrop. Remove E and add H in its place when you want to perform a scene change from outdoors to indoors.

12. TIME TO GET CREATIVE! Open up your program that came with your kit. Inside you'll find our Hallows’ Eve story, as well as coloring and activities. Perform our script to get your play started, and then let your imagination take over. We would love to see what you come up with, so post a video or photos with your paper theatre and use #MyGTPaperTheatreKit (We may have a few prizes for those who do!)


萬聖夜紙劇場紙藝手工包

感謝你將一點小小的劇場魔法帶回家。我們很興奮與你一起打造屬於你自己的小劇場,也很期待聽到你們創造出來的故事。請務必記得在

組裝之前先閱讀說明。若需要協助的話可以參考我們的「教你怎麼做」影片。



工具

  • 剪刀或美工刀 (僅限成人)

  • 固體膠

步驟

1. 沿著實線將所有的紙片剪下來。記得將A, C, D, E 跟 H 上標記的切開處剪開。

2. 用尺跟剪刀(或者美工刀)輕輕的沿著C, D, F 跟 G 的虛線壓出折痕,但不要割開,這是為了方便折疊。

3. 將C跟D的所有虛線處往前折。

4. 將固體膠塗在C左邊的黏貼處。將D放到黏貼處上,確保圖像對齊,然後施力將它們黏在一起。

5. 將固體膠塗在C跟D下方的三個黏貼處。將B的上方邊緣黏到中間的黏貼處。將C跟D的兩邊對折令它們立起,將其餘的黏貼處黏到B的

兩邊。你現在應該建成了舞台地面和立體的背景。

6. 將E放入背景上舞台(後方)的插槽中。

7. 將A放入背景下舞台(前方)的插槽中。

8. 將W的上方的黏貼處向前折並在背面塗上固體膠。將W黏到舞台地面上,確保黏貼處在舞台後方,這樣舞台的洞才可以被藏在機關門下。

9. 將Q,R,S,T 跟U的折線向反面折起並令它們立起來,這樣你就可以按照喜好擺放它們。

10. 將I,N,L,跟P的背面全部塗上固體膠。將X剪出來的棒子黏在每個紙娃娃背面。確保棒子從娃娃的上方穿出。將J,M,O,K 黏到對應的娃娃

的另一面,把棒子夾在紙娃娃的兩面之間。

11. 將F跟G的所有虛線處向前折。若想要變換背景,只需要將F跟G插入現有的背景前。如果想要將場景從戶外換到室內只需要將E換成H。

12. 故事時間終於到了!打開紙藝手工包裡面的節目表,裡面你會發現“萬聖夜”的故事以及著色還有活動項目。開始創造屬於你自己的表

演,自由發揮想像力。我們很期待看到你們的創作,所以記得將你的紙劇場的影片或者相片上傳到社交平台上並且標記
