Maritime Marionettes, founded by partners and puppeteers Heather and Darryll Taylor, has been entertaining families in Canada and abroad since 1986. The Taylors bring traditional and original stories to life with exquisitely made and skillfully manipulated wooden marionettes. The company creates its productions from concept to finished product, including fashioning the marionettes and creating sets, props, and costumes for every show.
Maritime Marionettes has gained an international reputation for their artistic excellence and high-quality family entertainment. They have travelled in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North America with their stringed creations, giving their audiences an opportunity to see a unique and ancient art form brought to life at the hands of two gifted puppeteers.
