This paper is a study of an interview with Hou Huiyi (1927-2014), who was successful and professional puppet player before the liberation of the Zhoushan islands of Zhejiang Province in China. I discuss in detail, the procedure of how Hou became a genuine student, and subsequently became an independent player by making great effort in the puppet play field. The experience of Hou’s continuous plays also demonstrates his skill as a puppet master, and this will also be considered. Moreover, by an investigation of his method, I will elucidate the Zhoushan Puppet Play Process, which originated from Biandanxi (扁担戯), and which today is performed by a puppeteer and two or three music players on a collapsible stage.
