Canada 150 Celebration
Canada 150 with Ventriloquist Kellie Haines, Kamilla and Magrau
From the first song Get Ready! Ventriloquist Kellie comes out with her high kicks and gets to business, warming up the audience with audience participation actions to this song. This show has musical numbers blended with fast-paced ventriloquism comedy featuring Magrau the bird and Kamilla the frog with natural red hair. It’s Canada’s 150th anniversary and from the perspective of a frog and bird, there are a lot of things to celebrate about being Canadian; Diversity, taking care of our environment and using our talents to give back to Canada!
Kellie, Kamilla and Magrau explore these ideas through songs, witty repartee and lots of audience participation. We learn that together we are building a caring and compassionate Nation.
Through storytelling, role play and fairy tales, teachers and care workers learn the techniques of puppetry which include character voices. Care givers learn how to use puppets in their circle time in this fun workshop. Learn how to make your own sock puppet teacher’s assistant to take home with you.
LAUGHING OUT LOUD!
This puppet musical has a lot going on including fast paced ventriloquism, singing (original music by Kellie), dancing, high kicks, physical comedy and lots of audience participation!
Kellie’s hilarious shows blend musical numbers with fast paced ventriloquism comedy bits! Magrau the colourful bird and Kamilla the curious frog with red natural hair will keep you guessing who is pulling the strings.
The sound of the drums starts the show with Kellie in her first interactive song GET READY!. Magrau the bird is a little hungry and full of surprises. Magrau and Kellie take a series of comic detours – like a mangled rendition of the Itsy-Bitsy Spider song- on their way to discovering the real cause of Magrau’s unrest: he was being teased by other kids for being afraid of the dark. Magrau has made a new friend though, and Lampy is her name. Magrau sings a song to Lampy called I’m Beginning to See the Light with the help of a volunteer. Next we meet Kamilla the frog, a precocious 4 year-old frog with red hair. Kellie reminds her about the big production number coming up and asks if she got all her frog friends and cousins lined up to be a Frog Chorus. When it becomes clear that Kamilla sort of forgot to round up other frogs, Kellie recruits audience members frogs for the song 100 Frogs. We end with the finale number about believing in yourself and knowing that when you try your best you can be extraordinary. Popular on main festival and open stages. Funny, zany and very interactive.
This musical highlights songs from Kellie’s newest CD The Story of Me Myself and I.
