Toronto Public Library

Thanks T.P.L.

Word got out about the successful day we had at the Don Mills Branch with "Puppets and Songs"

Pandora is delighted with the news that we're now entertaining junior library patrons and friends at The Kennedy Eglinton Branch Wednesday Aug 17 and Armour Heights Library Thursday Aug 25.

Like they say "word of mouth" is the best way to promote a show. The puppets are over the moon with excitement.

Details about these performances will be updated soon.

"Puppets and Songs" A variety show for children

"Puppets and Songs" is an all ages variety show. Since it's inception this show has undergone a number of transformations.

Now with more characters!

Lionel a very friendly lion. 

Valerie, a simple marionette who doesn't say a word, but loves to assist with puppet warm up exercises. 
Boo, named by audience members, this ghost is sure to please. 
Pandora and Prometheus, fun characters from Greek mythology, who tell silly jokes and deliver clever routines. 

And finally Petunia, a skunk with an interesting history and a very special tail.

This is part puppet show,  part puppet workshop, with a few original songs and some poetry thrown in for good measure.

"Puppets and Songs" is the perfect show for festivals and fairs because it is a variety show. You can come in late and you won't have missed the story.

This show has been pleasing audiences all over Ontario. 

Don't delay. Book today!

Lionel. He loves hugs

The smallest theatre company in Ontario

"A Ticket To Morrow"

This is a routine written by Prometheus. He has a strange sense of humour.

Similar to "Who's On First", "A Ticket to Morrow" is pure silliness, but VERY hard to perform as it really makes no sense at all and I'm stuck with having to play both parts!

Pandora's Box - The Puppet Show

This is the show that started it all. Pandora's Sox and all that.

"Pandora's Box - The Puppet Show" tells the story of the box (some say it was a Greek urn) that Pandora felt compelled to open.

You see, there was paradise. A couple of Titans, Prometheus and Epimetheus were enjoying paradise when suddenly up popped Pandora and this box. Pandora was VERY CURIOUS about this box, and well, we don't want to spoil the story now do we?

Suffice to say, it is an exceptional story. It must be. It is 3500 years old and is still being told.

Does Pandora open the box? Would you? What's inside the box? What might happen if the lid were to come off?

And what about after? If there is an 'after'.

As unbelievable as it might seem, there are also some great songs in this show. Even Zeus makes an appearance! As for the box and what's inside? Well, you'll just have to wait and see. And we certainly hope you get to see "Pandora's Box - The Puppet Show."

Give us a call, we'd be more than happy to perform it for you. Right Pandora?

You can read about our other two all-ages shows, "Everything's Tickety - Boo" and "Puppets and Songs"  HERE

"Go on, open the box!"
