Ronnie Burkett

Ronnie Burkett has been captivated by puppetry since the age of seven, when he opened The World Book Encyclopedia to "Puppets." He began touring his puppet shows around Alberta at the age of 14 and has been on the road ever since.   Recognized as one of Canada's foremost theater artists, Mr. Burkett has been credited with creating some of the world's most elaborate and provocative puppetry. Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes was formed in 1986 and has stimulated an unprecedented adult audience for puppet theater, continuously playing to great critical and public acclaim on Canada's major stages, and as a guest company on numerous international tours abroad.
