Back by popular demand! Returning after a completely sold out 2013 run, don't miss your chance to see the production The Georgia Straight called "one of the best shows you'll ever see." This season's edition of The Daisy Theatre will feature new variety acts and characters in addition to existing favourites! Each performance will be different, daring, ridiculous, and on the edge of the hands of renowned puppeteer provocateur Ronnie Burkett and the resident company of over thirty marionettes. But no two performances will be the same, making this a performance to see more than once! Ask the box office about our "see it twice price." For ages 19+. Tickets from $19.
