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 repertoire of shows combines witty repartee with puppet characters everyone can relate to, songs you can dance and sing along to, and engages important themes such as believing in yourself, embracing diversity and celebrating nature.
Kellie has a BA in drama, and a background in theatre, clowning, singing and dance. She performs at festivals, and in schools and theatres across Canada. She has also shared her puppetry talents on TV productions, and recently achieved a lifelong dream of working with the Henson productions on a made for TV movie called Turkey Hollow.
Kellie’s shows are hilarious and full of spontaneity, and her technical skills with puppet ventriloquism invites her audiences to experience storytelling in a unique and magical way. Even adults wonder who is pulling the strings!

Show experience:

The sound of drums starts the show as Magrau the bird and Kamilla a frog with red hair take a series of comic detours with Ventriloquist and Puppeteer Kellie Haines. Volunteers come to Kellie’s rescue to help keep the show on course. Puppets magically come alive, hilarious dialogue keeps the audiences laughing and Kellie’s puppets learn that being different is extraordinary. The physical comedy, songs and ventriloquism keep the children engaged and the reaction is priceless. From open stages, theatres, schools and festival main stages, Kellie’s interactive shows can be custom tailored for your venue’s needs.

“Kellie creates the perfect opportunity for children to believe in talking frogs and in the power of their imagination. I will definitely be bringing Kellie Haines back to our festival again.” – Marnie Perrin Artistic Director Surrey Children’s Festival
