TOTOLINO
Under the masterful manipulations of Marionettist Anthony Rais, Totolino,the boy clown, transcends the fine line between fantasy and reality. Rais’ presentation of Totolino is evidence of his painstaking attention to movement, expression and detail. Totolino is an amazingly life like Marionette. He will amuse you, he will charm you, and ultimately he will tug at your heart strings. The end result is nothing short of genius.
“Rais adds the poignant charm with his sad marionette clown, Totolino, drawing a gasp, than applause as the little figure blows up a balloon and drifts skyward.”

MALACHI
Malachi is a most unique marionette with a subtle blend of hand balancing and contortion.  His intricate manipulations lull you in to a fantasy of watching a live circus performer.  His features are lifelike and masterfully detailed, and his movements are fluid, performed with grace and athletic agility.

 

THE VENETIAN RESORT-HOTEL-CASINO …. “To say that your performance honoring Dr.Miriam and Sheldon Adelson in the Venetian Ballroom was the HIT of the evening is putting it mildly. Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for contributing your exceptionally artistic performance to a very special evening.” 
 - Betty Yurcich
SWEETIE
Sweetie is everyone’s best friend and enjoyed by young and old alike. She is a true case of “puppy love.” A great Marionette for promotions and public relations.

“Anthony Rais can move you with his masterful marionette artistic skills in a way that no one can. He introduced the audience to his friend and creation, Totolino, who captured the audiences heart with his big and warm eyes, which seems to be full of light, like the sun shining on brown pools in the woods. Rais manipulated the audience’s emotions into believing in his character as if it was real. Totolino is an amazing life like marionette, he will amuse you, he will charm you, and will most definitely tug at your heartstrings. This is quite an astonishing accomplishment created by the incredible Anthony Rais.”

RIGGA MORE-TEASE
Rigg-a-more-tease could certainly qualify as the world’s oldest stripper. She will tease your mind and tickle your funny bone with her spicy striptease.  This “bone-a-fide” lady leaves nothing to the imagination... as she has already taken it all off! 
“A surprise hit of the show was the amazing puppetry by Master Marionettist, Anthony Rais.”
- Robin Leach/Las Vegas Sun, June 27th 2011
“Anthony Rais keeps the art of marionettes alive. Anthony’s marionette clown Totolino shocks the audience by blowing up a balloon and floating through the air to the music from Pagliacci”. 
Sandy Zimmerman/Magic With a French Twist /Discover The Ultimate Entertainment, August 20th,2011
“It was magical to see how the puppets captured the attention of the audience. Anthony Rais brings his magic to shows all over the world and the world is a better place by his memorable performances with his puppets.”
