Box Full of Tools of the Trade
The tools Dale primarily uses to communicate dynamic truths through the dramatic arts are puppets and props. Dale places the 'tools' needed for bringing stories alive in any given presentation into a tool box (travel trunk) or tool bag (duffel bag) and off he goes. Here are a sampling of the characters who make appearances from Dale's toolbox (or bag).
This shy sheep was the first puppet character to show Dale how kids of all ages relate to puppets and thus was the first to join the cast of the 'TOOLBOX'. Sammy helps the shy among us and the shy part in all of us to have a character with which to identify.
This hoppity happy hare ran away from Dale's daughter to be the second puppet character in the 'TOOLBOX'. Bobby, who loves to share good news often leads off a session of exploring dynamic truth.
Billy Big Mouth Bass
This puppet converted from a hat made of. . .(well I'm not sure what :-) has without a doubt become a favorite! You can count on the fact that whenever Billy makes an appearance that there will be those who will come up afterwards and "Want to see that fish." Billy delights in underscoring the reality that "You shall know the truth and the truth will keep you out of the frying pan and swimming free!"
This info-bot from the planet Clippo is one of the prop characters from the 'TOOLBOX'. Whenever Dale puts on the cut-up old green coat, an amazing transformation takes place as Zippo appears to give insight into human life and behavior from an alien's perspective.
With this character Dale steps into the skin of a hillbilly from the hills just south of where he was raised in Missouri. This bigger than life prop character from the 'TOOLBOX' has a fun way of presenting serious truth.
Clint the Clown
This prop character is a panomiming marionette puppet. Dale can't work a marionette puppet, but with this character he can become one and accent the truth that God hasn't put us on strings but has given us a chooser.
Biblically Based Monologues
Dale delights in bringing a host of characters from the Bible to life with the help of his and the viewers imaginations.
This 'every man' character made his premiere within days of when Dale went full time with CareActor Inc.. Through the months Everett has personified a dad about to give his daughter away in marriage, a dad wrestling with the tragic death of a child in a car accident, a dad living with the head (and heart) aches of dealing with a rebellious teen and now stands ready to deal with other real life situations when the good Lord calls upon him.
