The Daisy Theatre

Ronnie Burkett (Toronto) | For ages 19+
HISTORIC THEATRE | 1895 VENABLES ST. | [map link]

MAR 21 – APR 9, 2017

Historic Theatre

Returning after three sold out runs, don’t miss your chance to see the production The Georgia Straight called “one of the best shows you’ll ever see.” Each performance will be different, daring, ridiculous, and on the edge in the hands of renowned puppeteer provocateur Ronnie Burkett and his resident company of over 40 marionettes. But no two performances will be the same, making this a performance to see more than once! Ask the box office about our “see it twice price.” For ages 19+

THE DRAW: “It’s some of the funniest, most brilliant theatre you’ll ever be lucky enough to see” — The Province

Burkett delivers hilarity and vulgarity, catharsis and pathos, all via papier-mâché.” – Andrea Warner, The Georgia Straight

A tour de force performance” – Baird Blackstone, Broken Leg Reviews

Wouldn’t miss it! Ronnie is superb! Now to see how many others I can introduce to his art.

People talk about triple threat performers. Ronnie Burkett is well beyond even that. Voice, puppetry, crafting, story, gravity, insight, humour: I can think of no equals.
