The Daisy Theatre

The Daisy Theatre

Created and performed by Ronnie Burkett

Music and lyrics by John Alcorn

Centaur Theatre

February 20-March 24, 2018


Ronnie Burkett designs and makes all of his puppets. He first discovered puppets at the age of seven, by fourteen he was touring his own shows and today, he is an internationally renowned puppeteer.


Fortunately for Mr. Burkett he has so many different puppets and way too many routines to do in one show. This gives him the ability to perform night after night and change the show to suit his audience while keeping it fun for himself. One could probably see the show on more than one occasion and catch parts they hadn’t seen before.


He knows the pulse of the city in which he is performing and is up to date on local issues.

The material is definitely for adult audiences only and is a welcome throwback to the days when we took our children to see Punch and Judy. However, this is not your parents’ puppet show.


The laughter is non-stop and the audience is encouraged to participate. There are no sacred cows as The Daisy Theatre takes politics, religion, and lifestyles head on. For the best part of two hours we are entertained by little puppets and amazing dialogue. Opportunities like this to watch inanimate characters come to life in a setting as intimate as the Centaur Theatre don’t come along often. Enjoy.
