Aluminium or wooden frame?

It's really a matter of personal preference.
Miraiker uses an aluminium frame herself because it folds into a smaller bundle and is more light weight than a wooden booth. Others prefer using a wooden frame but either works great.
The latest wooden design, pictured left unpainted, uses beech uprights with aluminium cross pieces to make the lazy tong fold neater and stronger.

Proscenium painting

Miraiker is happy to discuss your artwork with you and work with you on your own ideas, or you can leave her to it and she will design your proscenium for you. 
Every booth is unique. You can choose to have your name on it if you wish. 
You can have a traditional look or something special to you.

Not just a drop bag!
Shown below left is a lazy tong booth packed in a golf bag along with Miraiker's dual purpose drop bag containing the cover. The open drop bag in the booth can be seen ready for action below right. This drop bag is supplied as standard with every full booth.

Booth in a bag.
The booth in a bag  lets you reduce the number of trips from the car or makes arriving at your show by public transport entirely feasible. The wheeled trolley is designed for a standard aluminium booth and will hold everything supplied with that booth so all you need to bring along is a bag of puppets! It is available in a red and white canvas finish to match your booth or in the more weather resistant, striking red vinyl finish shown below. The foot on the end of the trolley allows it to be stored vertically when not in use taking up minimal storage space either at home or at your show.

Puppet booths for other shows

When Miraiker performs other puppet shows she uses the same booth as for Punch & Judy, but it looks completely different. 
Instead of having two separate booths the same frame can use a different cover, Miraiker uses green for her traditional stories. The side pieces of her Punch & Judy proscenium feature Mr Punch and his wife so she has a second pair that have clowns on for her other shows. She has different sceneries depending on which show is being performed.
You can have an adaptable booth so that you can switch between shows with a new look.

Ask Miraiker how she can help with your booth requirements.

​​  Booth rescue.

Have you an old booth that is not fit for purpose? Perhaps it needs a new cover or it doesn’t fold properly or the playboard is now more like a puppet slide! Maybe you want to convert from hands above head to hands in front of face.
Do you need a new proscenium or paintwork or some of our brilliant see through scenery? Whatever the problem help is at hand. With years of experience of building and repairing booths and sorting out other makers’ mistakes Miraiker can provide a solution. Call to discuss a budget for the work that needs doing.
​As an example of what can be achieved take a look at the bundle of badly fitting components of a "hands above head" frame which was sent to us shown on the left .
With a little thought, a new cover, playboard, some size adjustment, new scenery and proscenium this old beauty is now ready to work for many more years as a more modern "hands in front" booth.
