It was the best performance for students I have seen in 25 years of teaching.  Your play was a superb historical “lesson” combined with a well-loved fairy tale; your sets were intricate, fascinating and interestingly complex; the way you mixed the puppets in with your own roles made it feel like we were watching a cast of thousands and your performance was flawless. You kept everyone from 9 years old to us adults enthralled… you are awesome performers who have lit a spark in many a heart today.    Grade 4 teacher, Charles Howitt PS

Puppetmongers have been doing smart, sweet puppetry for years. [Cinderella in Muddy York] plays beautifully to children and adults alike… the humour is subtle and beguiling. This show is magic for everybody.    Lynn Slotkin, CBC 

…Puppetmongers, one of the most consistently delightful groups in the city. They work with great delicacy, wit and imagination, using carefully crafted puppets in charming stories.    Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star

…one of those lovely traditions that bring richness and colour to the multifaceted theatrical life of the city.    Robert Crew, Toronto Star

…charmingly low-key show that’s a welcome antidote to an excess of commercial razzle dazzle. …it’s sweet, sly and highly accomplished.    Richard Ouzounian, CBC
