Rag & Bone Puppet Theatre’s series of shows for families is back – live! – and the first one is free, thanks to a grant from the Ottawa Community Foundation. If you loved our online version of this and other presentations, come and join us in person for Snippets of Hats – poems, jokes and stories about hats, with special guest Simone Brown. And to top it off, wear a hat (if you like)!

The show is free, but space is limited, so please reserve your spot!

Presented in partnership with The School of Dance.


Rag & Bone Puppet Theatre

Rag & Bone Puppet Theatre, has toured across Canada and the U.S. since 1978 with over 100 performances a year in schools, libraries, children's festivals and theatres. Kathy has also written for many children's TV shows, including Mr. Dressup, Under the Umbrella Tree, and Theodore Tugboat. John appeared as Jackson on the YTV show Crazy Quilt. Numerous awards include an ACTRA award and a Citation of Excellence in the Art of Puppetry from UNIMA, the international puppetry association.

We aim to present intimate and innovative theatre experiences for school and family audiences, with simple effects that encourage children to tell their own stories, use their imaginations, and see things from different points of view. We want to spark creativity, literacy and laughter!
