About Rag & Bone

Rag & Bone Puppet Theatre has toured across Canada and the U.S. since 1978, with over 100 performances a year in schools, libraries, children's festivals, and theatres. They aim to present intimate and innovative theatre experiences for school and family audiences. They use simple effects that encourage children to tell their own stories, use their imaginations, and see things from different points of view. They want to spark creativity, literacy, empathy, and laughter! With their online programming, they hope to rekindle the connection that they have enjoyed with young audiences for so many years.
