The Daisy Theatre is master puppeteer Ronnie Burkett unleashed…unscripted, by the seat of his pants, manipulating and voicing a cast of forty marionette characters. From its premiere at the 2013 Luminato Festival and special engagement at New York’s Baryshnikov Arts Centre, this unique performance event has played to thousands, with critics and audiences alike falling in love with this bawdy, tender, and outrageous cast of characters. With the ever-changing content and nightly improv in an intimate setting, The Daisy Theatre is truly a “see it more than once” theatrical experience.

“Funny, touching, and pure genius.” - Edmonton Sun
“One of the more excellent shows you’ll see this season… maybe ever.” - Calgary Herald
