About

The Marionettes are three incredibly talented and tuneful friends - Sophie, Charlotte and Katie.

Having recently graduated from Cardiff University, Sophie has nurtured a passion and talent for music as far back as she can remember, and is classically trained in piano and singing to Grade 8 standard.

After graduating from The University of Birmingham, Charlotte toured the UK with a lead role in Cinderella, before returning to Bristol and performing with a number of subsequent theatrical productions.

Involved in musical theatre since a very young age, Katie went on to study Drama at Exeter University, and since graduating has performed extensively with numerous independent production companies.

    We all had a fantastic day today!! My daughter absolutely loved it and everyone was so friendly as always but especially to her, and she was totally bowled over by the gorgeous marionettes and even bought their c.d with her pocket money and got them all to sign it!

    Hi Marionettes! I'd really like to say a huge special thanks to you all for making my wedding a truly wonderful affair. Your performance was incredible, and our first dance was just perfect. It's something we'll both remember forever. All our friends were asking about you, and everyone really enjoyed your set. On behalf of my new husband Joe and I, thank you very much! We're looking forward to catching one of your gigs soon.
