How does it work? Just reserve a spot, and we will send you a Zoom invite. We look forward to seeing you!

Reserve a spot

Snippets is a series of staged readings, bringing words and pictures alive, using snippets of puppetry, masks, acting, music, and jokes. Sometimes we invite special guests to join us – musicians, actors, community leaders, or local celebrities. Sometimes we pass out masks, puppets and stuffed toys so audience members can get up and jump into the action.

With this fun, high-spirited program, we hope to promote literacy, encourage imaginative play, and spark creativity.

The content is flexible. Sometimes we adapt it for different occasions and different communities. In the summer of 2017, it was Snippets of Canada 150 to celebrate Canada’s birthday. In April of 2018, it was Whiskey Jack, in honour of Canada’s unofficial official bird. The Whiskey Jack, or Grey Jay, feathers its nest with bits and pieces of this and that, just like we do for Snippets.

For this glorious fall of 2020, the series has morphed into an online, virtual presentation. Families who pre-register will be emailed a zoom link to an event that will present stories, with Kathy, John and guests acting as live hosts, greeting the audience as they arrive, then fielding questions and comments at the end.

Hippity Hoppity Snippets, the first event in this series, takes place on September 27, 2020 at 1:30 pm. It will feature stories about rabbits, including Peter Rabbit, an excerpt from Felicity Falls, and more. Attendance is limited, so we recommend that you reserve your spot soon. Another presentation will be added if needed.

Strange Snippets
of Halloween

Join us for a virtual Halloween party on Saturday, October 31 at 1:30 pm.

Show off your costume, and enjoy some STRANGE stories with Rag & Bone Puppet Theatre!

Attendance is limited, so we recommend that you reserve your spot soon.

We will send you a Zoom invite and ask you to come in with sound and video on, turn them off for the show and come back afterwards for questions and comments. That way, we can see who’s there, say hello and chat with you afterwards.

Why not dress up? We’d love to see your costumes!

Who can that be?

Don't just sit there: perk up your ears, and be a bunny!

We invite audience members to come to the show dressed as rabbits, and to get you started we've got a rabbit mask pattern for you to download here. We'll have a chance to see your creations before and after the show. And we'd love it if you could post some of them for us to see.
