Maritime Marionettes

The Maritime Marionettes will be an exciting part of the 2022 Summerside Arts Festival. Puppet shows in the cavern will be performed daily at 11 am, 1 pm, 2pm, 3 pm, 6 pm and 7 pm. After the show, the audience will have the opportunity to interact with the puppeteers and learn about the art. 

Maritime Marionettes, founded by puppeteers Heather and Darryll Taylor, have entertained audiences in Canada and abroad, performing in English or French, since 1986. They have travelled in Asia, the Middle East, Europe and North America with their stringed creations, giving their audiences an opportunity to see a unique and ancient art brought to life at the hands of two gifted puppeteers. The company creates its productions from concept to finished product. This includes making and fashioning the marionette figures that feature in the shows, to the sets, props and costuming of the productions.

Heather and Darryll began working together in 1984 with the Kids’ Express Puppet Troupe, Halifax NS. Then, after a full season of apprenticeship and touring with David Syrotiak’s National Marionette Theatre (Pennsylvania) the Taylors began their company, Maritime Marionettes, based in Truro, Nova Scotia.
