Canada 150 Video

We are marking Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation in 2017, with a special puppet project, that seeks to connect people of all cultures, celebrate the land and remember our Canadian values of generosity and courage. 

WP Puppet Theatre has created a community video of a modern-day story about Canada’s new (unofficial) avian emblem – the Gray Jay.  We invited over one hundred and fifty, local, national and international participants of all ages, and their puppets, to read and film the story, The Gray Jay and the Magpie by Ken Lee, one line at a time. Why? We’re marking Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation! One line for each year.
