Exploring your Inner Puppet with Kellie Haines Ventriloquist
In this exciting workshop, Ventriloquist Kellie Haines and her puppets will engage you as you enter the world of puppetry. Kellie taught herself how to puppeteer as a young child and now she performs professionally and brings puppets to teachers, care givers and even doctors in the ER. Learn how to integrate your puppets into circle time. Make your own sock puppet to take home! Through the use of fairy tales, the participant is encouraged to play while they learn techniques of puppetry including character’s voices. No experience is necessary. Please wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to have some fun.
Kellie Haines started talking to her puppets at the age of 8, and when they started talking back she knew she had a show. Now a seasoned ventriloquist, puppeteer and family entertainer, Kellie’s shows combine witty repartee with puppet characters everyone can relate to. Puppets have stories to tell and they can bring out voices and characters from inside us that we didn’t know were there! Kellie was invited to consult, perform and present workshops at the Museum of Anthropology in BC during their exhibition of Shadows, Strings and Other Things. She has been presenting puppetry workshops for over 20 years. She puppeteers for television and film and teaches puppetry and ventriloquism. Kellie’s technical skills with ventriloquism invites her audiences to experience storytelling in a unique and magical way.
Courtesy of CCRR, each participant will receive a $10 made puppet (including a mouth) with puppet supplies to create their own personalized puppet.
