Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes
“Some of the funniest, most brilliant theatre you’ll ever be lucky enough to see.” - The Province
“Funny, touching, and pure genius.” - Edmonton Sun
The Daisy Theatre is puppeteer Ronnie Burkett, who manipulates and voices a dynamic entourage of marionettes in a variety of acts ranging from opera to cabaret, and vaudeville to Vegas. A rotating cast of forty characters includes singer Rosemary Focaccia, marionette ventriloquist Meyer Lemon, chanteuse Jolie Jolie, and the beloved fairy child Schnitzel. With ever-changing content and nightly improvisation performed in an intimate setting, the tender, outrageous antics of The Daisy Theatre are a theatrical experience to be seen more than once.
Music is by John Alcorn.

Co-commissioned by Luminato (Toronto, Canada) and the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA).
