November 15-19: The Daisy Theatre, Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes at Stanford

Hosted By: Stanford Live


Don’t bring the kiddies to puppeteer Ronnie Burkett’s rather ribald, thoroughly entertaining Daisy Theatre. Burkett, who hails from Alberta, Canada, became interested in puppets as a child, when he picked up Volume P of the World Book and it fell open at “puppets.” Burkett is a one-man show, improvising on the spot. His marionettes—a rotating cast of 40 characters—include ventriloquist Meyer Lemon, actress Lillian Lunkhead, and Edna Rural. Advisory: chance of puppet nudity.


Tickets $15-$50.

In residence November 15-19.
Bing Concert Hall Studio
