Shortly after meeting on the stage in the early 80's, Jackie Minns and David Cameron formed Kingbaby Productions and began working as a creative team, writing, directing and performing original work for the live stage. In 1993 they moved to Bowen Island and have since created many full-length plays, cabarets and sketch comedy for the community and have toured successfully in Vancouver, the lower mainland and Canada.
As well as functioning as a professional theatre company, Kingbaby finds itself entwined in the many festivals and fundraising events that occur regularly on Bowen Island. They continue to follow their artistic passion while providing professional quality entertainment.
Kingbaby Productions was incorporated as a Not For Profit Society in 2002.
