“ I appreciate your depth of passion and compassion that spoke so poignantly to me. Thank you for your gift of expression.”

“ Seductive, witty, clever, happy full of smile. Most enjoyable!”

“ You are a rare treasure of art. Surreal. Blessings.”


RON DALE, Superintendent, Parks Canada Niagara National Historic Sites

“Ms. Bannerman’s work to tell the fascinating stories of the town’s past through theatre and first person interpretation is a welcome addition to the heritage programming available in town. There will be many opportunities for her work to be featured at our various historic sites and at numerous special events with a heritage theme....Maja Bannerman is very talented, capable and able to bring our history alive.”

CLARK BERNAT, Curator, Niagara Historical Society and Museum, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario

“We have been working with Ms. Bannerman for over 3 years, for performances, first person entertainment and in many other capacities. Her charm, wit and creativity has delighted visitors and audiences at our Museum many times.”

APRIL PETRIE, Superintendent, Heritage Resources, The Niagara Parks Commission, Niagara Falls, Ontario

“Maja’s unique talents allow her to blend history with the dramatic arts. She has brought several characters to life including Laura Secord and a servant girl in the McFarland family in 1840s Upper Canada. Her thoughtful portrayals have added great depth to our programs, enabling both adults and school children to travel back in time with her.”

GERDA MOLSON, CEO, Niagara-on-the-Lake Public Library

“Maja is one of the most talented people I know. She has an engaging personality which she brings to all her performances.”

BRYAN SMITH, English & Media Studies, International Studies Coordinator, Literacy Chair, Woodstock, Ontario

“Maja Bannerman encourages young people and adults to engage in Canadian stories and history. She brings figures alive with her words and performances, and makes them seem to breathe and speak in our presence. The day after her visit saw lively discussions of the events, personalities and performances shared with us. Some eighteen-year olds admitted to being quite moved by her characters; fourteen year-olds were sure they had met characters long dead through her portrayal; adults had nothing but praise for her work. Her visit was memorable and piqued all of our appetites for more.”
