In the The Neverending Story, a novel by Michael Ende adapted for the stage by David S. Craig, the child protagonist reads a fantastical world into existence. When directing and puppet designing a theatre production of The Neverending Story at the University of Lethbridge in February of 2013,1 sought to populate that world using mundane objects and character situations from the real world, repurposed into object puppets and animated by actor-puppeteers. In this paper, I assess the conception, design and performance of puppets in my production of The Neverending Story.
