The Story of Me, Myself & I
This musical is a fictionalized autobiography. Kellie meets two puppets who help her come out of her shyness, join the circus, and become a ventriloquist act. During their Vegas show, Magrau exhibits strange behaviours ( small shouts and involuntary movements) which turns the show sideways. We discover that Magrau has Tourette Syndrome. Instead of quitting, we realize Magrau’s challenges are his strengths and work his outrageous behaviour into our act, winning bigger raves than before.
- Note – this show isn’t about having Tourette, instead it’s about turning your own individual challenges into successes!
Grade Suitability: K – 7

“To see the children’s faces light up, reaffirmed everything that the arts do for children. We are still talking about it and wondering when the bird and frog can come back. Thank you for coming all this way to share your time.”

A Space To Play
Three friends—ventriloquist Kellie Haines, Kamilla the frog and Magrau the bird—explore the differences in people, nature and the universe in this hilarious and interactive musical adventure. Magrau wants to help protect the mountain caribou by finding them more space to play, while Kamilla wonders if she is the only frog in the universe. With the help of the audience’s imaginations and talents, the trio learns that being different is not only okay, it’s amazing!
