ABOUT the PADDLING PUPPETEERS
For the past 20 years The Paddling Puppeteers have been touring Canada with their nature and history based musical puppet shows. In the early years the show was packed into a “Wiigwaas-Jiimaan” Ojibway style birch bark canoe and we traveled from show to show along the waterways of Ontario.
“Honest Frankie the Frog’s Shoreline Review” has been a popular show ever since, a show all about the natural and cultural history of Ontario waterways with a message of nature stewardship. More recently our light hearted and humorous show “Plugging into Nature” is all about turning off the screen and getting outside to connect with nature and to promote mental and physical wellness. Our latest show “The Great Geo-Story” travels back in time featuring creatures from millions of years ago including the ever popular Wolly Mammoth!
All of the shows are full of original sing-a-long songs, colourful puppets, string stories and more! After 20 years of performing at folk festivals, schools, libraries, museums, First Nations communities and provincial and national parks we feel like we are just getting started and can’t wait for our next show! We also offer puppet making, soap stone carving and nature game workshops and can even provide trees from our tree nursery as a “hands on” way to help care for our home the earth.
We look forward to hearing from you to help make your event fun and green!
