Marionette Sailor Doll
In the spring of 1931, Mrs. F.N. Darke approached Mrs. C.M. Willoughby and asked her to form a Ladies Aid Circle of young women. In February 1932, the circle was asked to give a program for a Sunday evening. Thus the marionettes were born and continued to give shows until 1963. When the Regina Little Red Hen Theatre took over, the marionettes were retired and were donated to the museum in 1986.
Marionettes are distinguished from regular puppets by the strings which manipulate and control them from above.
