A retrospective of the award-winning Coad Canada Puppets. How Luman and Arlyn Coad, with such diverse backgrounds and talents, met, blended their creativity and energy, and formed one of North America’s leading puppet theatres. The Coads received 8 Citations of Excellence in the Art of Puppet Theatre from the American Center of the Union Internationale de la Marionnette and both the President’s Award and the Trustees’ Award from the Puppeteers of America. In 2006 they were inducted as Pioneers in the British Columbia Entertainment Hall of Fame. They were invited to perform in nearly twenty countries around the world.

"A beautiful and comprehensive look at the award-winning work of Coad Canada... The book is an essential document about the art of puppetry and puppet history."
Steve Abrams, Puppetry Journal

"Theatre Art of Coad Canada Puppets"
is a loving tribute to the work of Arlyn Coad, and a thoughtful account of the theater she and Luman Coad made for over three decades. This book shows the high artistic quality of Coad Canada...and burnish(es) the company's already substantial prestige."
John Bell, Puppetry International
