Viktor performed at my 3 year olds birthday party. It was such a hit! The show was very funny and engaging and Viktor was great with all the kids. I would absolutely recommend his show :)
Response from Vancouver Puppet Theatre:
Thank you So Much for the wonderful review, Amanda! I had so much fun myself performing for your family and guests!
The show was great, but some kids got scared with some of the stories.
Response from Vancouver Puppet Theatre:
Thank you for FOUR SHINY STARS!
I am sorry to hear that some of your kids got scared, thou the stories we presented where age-appropriate: The Three Little Pigs and Kolobok. The chances are that In a large audience like yours some kids could be absolutely un-exposed to live theater and puppetry. Here is a great article on how and why it is important to gradually expose children to their fears:
Here is a little quote from it:
It's tempting to avoid your child's terror triggers, but doing so can make them seem even bigger. Instead, help your child get used to a scary situation in increments.
Feel free to call me if you would like to chat.
I am looking to working with you again in the future!

Welcome to the Vancouver Puppet Theatre!
My name is Viktor Barkar and I am the artistic director and creator of Vancouver Puppet Theatre. Our mobile Theatre was organized here in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia on April 21, 2012.
I had contemplated the idea of creating a Puppet Theatre since 1998, when my family and I moved from Minsk, Belarus to Ottawa, Canada.
If you are looking for original, fun and captivating entertainment for your children, or would just like to re-discover puppetry beyond The Muppet Show and Sesame Street – we’re your puppets!
