Kellie Haines

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 and her puppets, Magrau the bird and Kamilla the red-haired frog, combine witty repartee and original songs. Kellie was invited to consult, perform and present workshops at the Museum of Anthropology in BC during their puppetry exhibition Shadows, Strings and Other Things. She performs at festivals, and in schools and theatres across Canada, and she has also shared her puppetry talents on TV productions. Kellie’s technical skills as a ventriloquist and storyteller transport audiences to a unique and magical place.

This beautiful land on which we gather, play and live, is the ancestral, traditional and unceded territory of the Syilx (Okanagan) peoples, who have been here for thousands of years.
