A see-it-more-than-once
theatrical extravaganza!

The Daisy Theatre is world-renowned Canadian puppet mastermind Ronnie Burkett unleashed and unscripted in a hilarious one-man cabaret packed with 40 of the most outrageous characters you’ll ever encounter. Manipulating and voicing the entire rogue’s gallery, meet Canada’s oldest and worst actress Miss Lillian Lunkhead, chanteuse Jolie Jolie, marionette ventriloquist Meyer Lemon, and lounge singer Rosemary Focaccia. The ridiculous, tender, or bawdy antics of Daisy Theatre favorites Esme Massengill, Mrs. Edna Rural and beloved fairy child Schnitzel, lampooning theatre, opera, music hall, Vegas, and vaudeville in a nightly improv, have audiences coming back for seconds and thirds.

PROFILE

By Barbara Ford

Why Puppets?

Ronnie Burkett discovered puppets at the age of 7, by 14 he was touring his own shows and today, he is an internationally renowned puppeteer and provocateur. His work markedly increased adult audiences, validating the art form as legitimate theatre, long before the advent of such “prop” puppet blockbusters as Lion King and War Horse. He’s played in most major Canadian theatres, breaking a few box office records along the way, and has won almost every award in the biz, including an Emmy, the Siminovitch Prize, an Obie Award, and multiple Stirling, Chalmers, Betty Mitchell and Dora Mavor Moore Awards.
