The Daisy Theatre by Ronnie Burkett - Mississauga
The Daisy Theatre is internationally acclaimed puppeteer Ronnie Burkett unleashed…unscripted, by the seat of his pants, manipulating and voicing his characters through variety acts, impromptu monologues, musical numbers and audience participation, featuring a cast of 40 marionette characters.
Audiences and critics alike fall in love with the ridiculous, tender, outrageous antics of Daisy Theatre characters: Esme Massengill, Mrs. Edna Rural and beloved fairy child Schnitzel. Variety numbers parody theatrical genres from opera, music hall, Las Vegas, French cabaret and vaudeville with characters including lounge singer Rosemary Focaccia, marionette ventriloquist Meyer Lemon, chanteuse Jolie Jolie, and “Canada’s oldest and worst actress” Miss Lillian Lunkhead”.
With the ever-changing content and nightly improv, each performance will be different, daring and on the edge!
Co-commissioned by: The Luminato Festival (Toronto) & the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA (Los Angeles) in association with Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes (Toronto).
Music by John Alcorn.
