We are so excited to introduce everyone to our newest family member, Patch the Ventriloquist Puppet!
In March of 2017, Teri Baker and Izabela Bzymek put the finishing touches on what would be the design for our dear bunny, Patch. Spending hours refining his look, our lovable and homely looking bunny came to fruition. Now, just over a year later, we are so excited to announce that Patch has been brought to life with the help of Mary Ann from Mat Puppets. Joined by the incredible voice talent of ventriloquist Gary Owen, Patch will soon become a household name!
“Mary Ann has been working tirelessly for the past few months to ensure everything from our design and initial drawings can be found in this larger than life puppet she has created.” – Creative Director, Jonica van Rikxoort
Patch is definitely at the heart of our story, with Marcie as our strong female protagonist. Patch represents the unwanted, different and uniqueness we find in this world, while Marcie showcases how easy it is to become overwhelmed, perhaps biting off more than she can chew. Our story is filled with valuable life lessons for children of all ages, and it’s through Patch and Marcie that kids will find that link they can identify with.
Gary Owen, ventriloquist coach and road show producer for American’s Got Talent winner Darci Lynne, has joined the team to help create a unique and memorable voice for Patch.
This August, Gary and Patch will have their first appearance together at a show held in Kelowna, BC. Though specifics for the show are still in the works, we know for sure they will be at the Delta Grand Okanagan on August 24th, 2018. Gary and Patch may also be making another appearance on August 25th, alongside author Teri Baker, but more details for that will be available next month.
Due to family illness and unforeseen circumstances, it is with great sadness and a heavy heart we announce we have cancelled the Gary Owen Ventriloquist Show slatted to happen on August 24th. We truly appreciate all of the love and support we have received over the past several months and look forward to sharing future events with all of you.
We can’t wait for everyone to meet Patch the Puppet and fall head-over-heels for him like we have.
Join us this August and meet Patch in person! * Be There or Be Square *
