We regret to advise that the 19 January performance of The Daisy Theatre has been cancelled due to Ronnie Burkett being unwell and unable to perform. At this stage, all other performances will go ahead as scheduled. If you have booked a ticket, our Box Office will be in touch to arrange a full refund or exchange of tickets to another Sydney Festival event.
Acclaimed Canadian puppeteer Ronnie Burkett’s marionettes captivate with vivid, bawdy humanity. Featuring a rotating cast of 40 beautifully expressive characters, all manipulated and voiced by Burkett, The Daisy Theatre’s structure changes every night with improvised satire, comedy, and outrageous musical numbers.
A puppet revue for grown-ups, The Daisy Theatre reflects the state of the world and the pain, beauty, joy and absurdity of life. In the hands of cult puppet master Burkett, this stringed ensemble comes hilariously alive.
“One of the more excellent shows you’ll see … maybe ever” The Calgary Herald
