Hi Marie and all of Studio Babette
A big thank you to all of you for bringing the magic of your puppetry to our exhibit yesterday. The huge numbers and the children's reactions were a great indication of the success of your show. It was so enjoyable to reconnect with you over lunch as well.
Thank you again for your participation in our Puppets Elora 25th anniversary celebrations.
Please forward this to the other members of Studio Babette.
Gail, Puppets Elora

Dear Marie, Helena and Kerry,
We so enjoyed getting together with you yesterday, as well as being entertained by your spirited performance! The audience enthusiasm was very gratifying and provided a very good measure of the hard work, professionalism and FUN that you heaped into the production.
I am very grateful to Annerose and to you for stimulating this dialogue between puppeteering neighbours. I look forward to more such occasions. Meanwhile I wish you all the best on your journey of entertainment.
Peter, Puppets Elora

I just wanted to say again how much we enjoyed the performance on Wednesday night. The puppets are so unique and really bring history to life. Your creativity is awesome! It was great to see you again and to catch up on your growing family.
Take care,

Well, congratulations on your award last evening. We are so proud of you and the play that you created and now perform. It is an honour to be recognized by Haldimand County for your original play, one that tells the unique story of a significant local family and their contribution to Canada. It also has meaning during this year as the commemoration and recognition of the 100th anniversary of the First World War.
Well done and thank you from Ruthven Park!

Little Fairy Tales for Little People
Ireland House at Oakridge Farm,
November 20, 2011
Dear Studio Babette Puppet Theatre Team,
On behalf of the Museums Board, staff and volunteers of Joseph Brant Museum and Ireland House at Oakridge Farm, thank you for helping to make our Old Fashioned Christmas a joyful occasion!

We had a great turn out with the families in the Burlington community coming together in the spirit of the holidays. It may not have been a white Old Fashioned Christmas but it was a beautiful sunny day.

Thank you very much for your Puppet Performance. It greatly contributed to our efforts in presenting this event to the community. The audience got lost in your fairy tales. It was definitely a highlight of the event. Your friendliness and professionalism surpassed our expectations and we will highly recommend you. I look forward to possibly working with you again in the future. We hope you have the happiest of holidays.

Thank you once again for your wonderful performance.

Hi Puppeteers,
I have to tell you that your Lil red hood and 3 piggies show was great. The kids were captivated and engaged. The puppets and all the props were very charming.
My grandson never sits for 40 minutes at a time unless he's watching a video.. he was participating and involved. He's usually shy with adults, but he felt he was part of the action.
He wants to see more.
Be careful of strangers with big teeth.

The Greensville Library
, March, 2010
We had our puppet shows here at Greensville yesterday, what an amazing turnout! Almost 100 people came and enjoyed two delightful shows. Many thanks to everyone who helped out and to Studio Babette for making the day a wonderful success. Many of the people who came for the show had never been to the branch before so it was a great opportunity to show them what the library has to offer.

Excellent drawing of the Carlos set by Connor Marr, Susan's grandson!
