The EuroBasket 2007 Grand Puppet Theatre

Stage:The stage will be an interactive space for the entire audience, surrounded by storybook scenery with large elements in the set that will give the audience the feeling that they are part of the play.There will be a large area for the audience to sit in, simulating a basketball court, in which they will be able to throw different balls into the LARGE “Inflatable Baskets”, before the performance begins. Later, during the performance, these baskets will be of major importance in the telling of the story.In another part of the public area and opposite each other will be another two “Inflatable baskets” with a frightening design, replacing the previous ones and situated at the front during part of the stage.


Alberto, the presenter, will be dressed as a basketball referee and tell the children that they will be waiting for the GUEST BALL to make the symbolic THROW that will open EuroBasket 2007.

Two children, PAU and SELENA, appear. They are very happy to be there and ask about the ball. The children in the audience tell them what happened and they decide to look for help. PAU goes to his Coach PEPU, and SELE to the players in the TEAM.The witch reappears and tells the children her plan…

A hostess will throw a large inflatable basketball into the audience which the children will pass to one other like a large balloon until it reaches the stage to a big applause.

Alberto will store it in a special place and say goodbye to the children because he is going to greet the players.

When leaving the stage, FEDERICA, THE WITCH will appear and angrily gesture to the children that she does not want to see them there. When she finds out that they are waiting for the team, she will try to SABOTAGE the competition. The first thing she does is burst the guest ball and then go to her hideout to devise an evil plan to ruin the event.

She calls her snake, PYTHON, which is able to coil up and simulate a ball, and anyone who touches it becomes VERYYYY SMALL, and will also make disappear (deflating them with a spell) the GIANT BASKETS on the stall seats and, in their place, MAGICALLY INFLATE two HORRIBLE DRAGON-SHAPED BASKETS, by means of which she plans to make the team and anyone who gets in the way disappear. She then goes to her hideout for her book of spells, leaving the python to capture the team.

SELE and the players appear one by one and fall into the trap of touching the PYTHON, and become VERY SMALL. The witch puts them into a box and hides them in order to turn them into balls and throw them into the evil BASKETS to make them disappear.

The referees, SIL and BATO (whistle brothers), arrive.

They try to take the ball (which is the coiled-up python), but the children in the audience warn them and the brothers flee in a comic pursuit scene which leads to them getting out of the lorry (from puppets to characters) and running into the audience chased by the snake, which does not manage to reach them.

FEDERICA reappears on the stage with a large book of spells from which she reads the words with which she tries to change the players into balls, for which she needs them together in pairs.

She goes for the box where she is keeping them prisoner. In the meantime, PEPU and PAU appear and, warned by the audience of FEDERICA’s intentions, manage to fool the witch and join her together to the snake, so that with her own magic words they are turned into a large ball.

They call Alberto, who explains to the audience that basketball is a team sport, and that by working all together, helping each other, they can throw the witch into her evil basket.

With the help of the children, they throw this large ball, which has the image of the interwoven witch and python printed on it, into one of the evil baskets which collapse and deflate amidst smoke and noise. Then the GOOD BASKETS are re-inflated, finally finishing off the witch FEDERICA.

PEPU and PAU free SELE and the Players, but they are very small. To make them grow they are given a GOOD GLASS OF MILK which they all drink and return to their normal size.


The show will consist of 15 puppets around 1.2 metres in height, which are moved using sticks. Some characters will be puppets (behind the stage) and become characters that interact with the audience.

Advertising Spot (Outline)



PIECE: SPOT 30/45”

A basket from the European basketball competition is transported in a lorry through a city. The lorry carries the Eurobasket 2007 inscription. The city’s passers-by watch it go past.

Cut to:

A referee prepares to throw a ball to begin a basketball match. This is the typical moment when the ball is thrown upwards. The two adversaries that jump look at each other fiercely. The referee throws. The players jump. One pushes the ball into his field. A player from his team catches it. The shot opens up and we see that they are in the middle of the Puerta del Sol and those that jumped are wearing normal clothes, just like the player who caught the ball. Suddenly a group of passers-by jump for the ball and surprisingly start to bounce it and play skilfully. A man in a coat starts to pressure one of them and the person with the ball passes him very easily. A man next to a metro stop takes the ball. He throws it down into the metro. On the platform a girl moves forward quickly with the ball and others cover her. She passes to one of them inside the carriage. This person bounces the ball and side-steps. They throw the ball strongly and it emerges on the steps at the Santa Justa station in Seville. A child receives it and passes it rapidly. A girl catches it at the top of the Giralda. Without hesitating, she passes it quickly. A man catches it and moves forward. He raises his head and looks. He sees the lorry with the basket. He throws upwards and a boy jumps to dunk but an opposing player takes the ball in mid-air to prevent the slam dunk. He looks and throws strongly. A woman catches the ball in front of the Palma Cathedral. She is a bit clumsy bouncing it. The opposing players, out of respect for the old lady, do not try to stop her. The woman bounces, looks and passes. A young man (guard type) catches the ball and moves forward quickly along the Alicante promenade. He skilfully passes the ball behind the back of the neck. A boy takes it at one of the Alhambra towers. He moves forward, looks, throws upwards… The lorry arrives with its basket. A boy runs quickly toward it, jumps, catches the ball and… slam dunks…

Cut to:

Sitting in the stands of a stadium, like spectators, are the most important players in Europe; Gasol, Nowisky, Kirilenko, Basile… (in real life) and the artist/s who composed the spot’s music. They all vigorously applaud the boy’s dunk. They slap each others hands to celebrate the moment and… the game continues.



Post-pack: A player takes the ball from under the basket. He quickly throws the ball to the camera which goes black.
