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.
February 16-18 at various times
$12/15 (plus 1.50 ticketing fee)
Presented as part of Vancouver International Puppet Festival’s HomeGrown Series in collaboration with the Granville Island Cultural Society.
