- They are eager to get on stage and put on the best performance of their life. And want to earn the badge to make themselves better!
- They are afraid of being on stage and want to earn the badge to help them get over that fear.
- They have no desire to ever earn this badge – if that is the case check out one of the other Senior Badge Ideas available on Girl Scout Leader Connect….
If your girls fall into one of the first two categories then I would continue on in this post where I will share a few ideas to help you and your girls enjoy earning the Senior Girl Scout Troupe Performer badge.
If your like many leaders who just do not have the time to plan for a badge, you can save yourself a lot of time and just get a copy of the complete badge booklet that will take your girls through each step of the badge as they learn more about being a movie critic, create their own puppet show and stage, plan the skit to be used for performance, create advertising and promotional pieces to invite others to show, additional games and activities just for fun to help girls with confidence to be on stage. The girls will learn about stage directions, reherse their performance and of course have opening night/day with a cast party after.

Put on Your Very Own Puppet Show
One way to get the girls into performing in front of people is to have the girls make their own puppets and put on a puppet show.
