About Rag & Bone Puppet Theatre
Rag & Bone Puppet Theatre has toured across Canada and the U.S. since 1978. Founders John Nolan and Kathy MacLellan are joined by musician Ainsley McNeaney in productions of exceptional creativity and value for young audiences. The company believes in simple and aesthetically beautiful effects that encourage imagination and new ways of looking at things.
“There’s a delicate, wistful, nostalgia to the production that matches the story well. It’s a children’s story from another era, able to be sentimental without being saccharine.”
