About the Show

The Daisy Theatre is 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 forty marionette characters. Since its premiere at the 2013 Luminato Festival,  this unique performance event has played to thousands, with audiences and critics alike falling in love with the ridiculous, tender, outrageous antics of Daisy Theatre favorites 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 such as lounge singer Rosemary Focaccia, marionette ventriloquist Meyer Lemon, chanteuse Jolie Jolie, and “Canada’s oldest and worst actress” Miss Lillian Lunkhead, in what Vancouver’s Georgia Straight calls “one of the best shows you’ll ever see”. 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!
