Miriam Lambert Puppeteer

Miriam’s productions aren’t just for kids, but for anyone who appreciates high quality work that’s accessible and fun.  The production and puppets were both beautiful and clever, and the humour was so Irish, which in my opinion is the best humour of all! And to see the reaction of the kids, to see them totally engrossed, and to hear them laugh and react and engage, that’s an amazing thing, and a great gift to give to children and one they will remember. Immediately after the show people were asking Miriam when she would be back; and immediately after the show, I booked her for a subsequent show, and plan on asking her to return on an annual basis.” Aisling White – Operations Manager/Programming National Opera House, Wexford, Ireland

Miriam Lambert’s The Three Little Pigs is always a joy to programme for our family audiences. Miriam’s skill as a puppeteer and story teller is second to none and our youngest audience members leave the theatre inspired and enchanted. Marketa Dowling – Programme Manager BELLTABLE

The work Miriam did with Garrison School was valuable, and her performance at the Kennedy Center was wonderful

Through the imaginative use of simple puppets, Miriam Lambert’s rendition of The Gingerbread Man truly invigorates an age-old tale. The show is introduced by her signature characters, Peek and Boo. These very basic puppets are the forefingers of Lambert’s gloved hands, anthropomorphised only by tufts of fluffy hair on top. Speaking in the international language of gobbledygook, the slapstick comedy of Pick and Boo sets the scene wonderfully for the adventures of the mischievous Gingerbread Man

Excellent – Children are obviously enjoying the show very much – All heads eyes and ears were attentive. Props amazing and the music kept children focused between scenes.

We have had Miriam performing here in the Centre as part of our “Pooka” Children’s Festival for the past two years. Her performance has always been the highlight of the festival. The only problem being unable to cater for all the children who want to come, what I love about the way Miriam works is the way she encourages the children to use their imagination and make their own individual puppets, rather than telling them what to make! Miriam has a great way with children and they all love her. I would highly recommend her performances and puppet making workshops to any venue

– Colette, Séamus Ennis Cultural Centre, Naul, Co Dublin, January 2010

Childrens’ reaction is very positive – most enjoyable entertainment. Very engaging for the children, the simplest things are extremely effective

– Teacher, Gaelscoil Na Cille, Ashbourne, Meath County Council Library, Children’s Book Festival, October 2011

The Craic was Mighty at the Irish Music Festival – Puppeteer Miriam Lambert got a great reaction to her production of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. She had all the kids- and plenty of adults – roaring, laughing and shouting along. The show was high quality and great fun to watch

– Kayti Murphy, 65° North – News and Views from Oulu Finland, October 2008

Now this was a very, very good performance. It had humour and it was comical and it was also enjoyable for all ages altogether, it was an absolutely magnificent performance, and I give it 9 out of 10

– James Kilbride (Age 12), Barnstorm Theatre Company’s Children’s Review Panel, 2009

You would think that Ms. Lambert’s open visibility on stage would take away from the charm of the show. On the contrary, it enhanced it and kept the audience spellbound. She deftly and humorously manipulated her puppets and props between two levels, telling the story and acting all the parts. One was completely captivated and briefly transported to the days of joy and innocence
