    The purpose of the following work is to present the making of a puppet show. When planning the show, work of the production director is essential, as he leads the process. Planning starts with the selection of the story, which has to correspond to the audience. It is followed by writing a synopsis, that is only an indicative story, and scenario, which is a story written exactly as we will later play it. Based on the story, we choose the actors and the puppet technique. The thesis presents four main puppet techniques: hand puppets, marionettes, shadow puppets and flat puppets. In the second part of the paper, a practical example is presented. With the help of four students in the elective subject puppetry class, we have produced a puppet show: »Confusion due to the small bear«. The whole process from choosing the story, writing synopsis, producing scenario, making puppets and final rehearsal is described. The puppet show was played to preschool children in a mini theater at Ljubljana Castle. Last part of paper introduces the analysis of the children responses to the show. Analysis of recording showed that children empathized with the show and main characters.
