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!
