Who Killed Gertrude Crump?

 Vancouver International Puppet Festival

Agatha Christie returns from the dead to perform a one-woman haunted house murder mystery puppet show. It’s New Year’s Eve 1899. One by one, an enigmatic cast of characters arrive by boat at the haunting and isolated Monkswell Manor. That night, famous murder mystery author Gertrude Crump is murdered, mysteriously! The boat becomes dislodged in the storm. No one can leave until the truth is uncovered. As the characters investigate, accuse, suspect, confess, plot, flash-back, and engage in general hubbub, the audience is charged with the task of answering one simple question: Who Killed Gertrude Crump?

A Birdy Told Me So

Vancouver International Puppet Festival

Eight-year-old Kellie doesn’t feel like she fits in at school until she receives a birthday gift that talks on its own! It’s Magrau, a chatty and confident bird puppet who has a flair for singing, dancing, and making people laugh. When Magrau signs the two of them up for the school talent show Kellie is mortified. What if everybody laughs? What if nobody laughs? The advice from Magrau the bird? Never give up! Join Kellie as she learns that success is like learning how to ride a bike: you’re going to fall down a few times on your way.

This show blends storytelling with ventriloquism, puppetry, and singing. Join us for a heartwarming tale about sharing our talents and overcoming shyness.
