Take your love of playwritng to a new level by bringing your ideas to live through a colorful puppet theatre, with this fun application
Like many others, you may share a love for the theater, but it is sometimes difficult to come up with new story ideas when staring at a piece of paper or an empty page in a word processor.
Little Theatre is an innovative application that provides you with an entirely different way of writing your plays, as you can create characters based on mechanical puppets, animate them and see your story being brought to life.
Start a new project, create your cast and let your imagination lead the way
To begin with, you need to name your play and specify the time and place the action is to take place in. There are a some sceneries, backgrounds and lighting variations available, although they are rather limited in number.
You can then create your characters by selecting one of the various male and female outfit templates and customizing their color patterns.
Afterwards, the real fun begins. Little Theatre makes it very simple to animate your characters by adding actions and clicking anywhere on the set to specify where they should move. Movements, gestures and dialogue are displayed in sequence and you can split them between multiple acts and scenes.
View a live performance of your creation and print your work in the desired format
Once you have finished designing your story, you can play it and see your characters being brought to life. The app’s visual style, which is inspired by the mechanical puppet theater, does a great job of fueling your imagination, so you should have no problems coming up with new ideas.
You can also save the story to various document formats and print it in script or book form.
Of course, Little Theatre’s main purpose is to help you write stories, but you could have hours of fun by just playing around with characters and trying to come up with all kinds of dramatic or comedic scenarios.
Fun application that can provide you with entertainment even if you are not a theater lover
In truth, we would love to see a recording function added to the app that would make it possible to export your plays to video files and share them with others.
All in all, this is an application we can definitely recommend for anyone looking for a new source of inspiration, as well as those who want to kickstart their children’s imaginations and provide them with a fun and educational way to spend their free time.
