Ventriloquist and family entertainer Kellie Haines started talking to her stuffed animals at the age of 8 and when they started talking back, she knew she had a show! Kellie has a BA in Drama and is a multitalented entertainer with a background in theatre, clowning, singing and dance. She performs at festivals, including the Vancouver and Surrey International Children‚Äôs Festivals, schools across Canada and as a puppeteer for television. Kellie wrote and performed two popular, long running musicals: Frogs in Space ‚Äì Kamilla‚Äôs Quest and Rocket Magrau ‚Äì Space Bird! at the HR MacMillan Space Centre Planetarium. She continues to teach puppetry/ventriloquism, present fun and interactive puppet making workshops and specializes in working with kids and youth with challenges. Since she was a child, performing has given Kellie confidence and she wants to share her story with others.
