“I want to see all your shows because you have the best puppet shows I have ever seen!” 3rd grader
Here is the storytelling show I am offering. You may want to choose this option if you have a room that can't get semi-dark for the shadow puppets. I can also shorten this show to 30 minutes for a toddler / pre-school only audience.
Dream Big! The night time is dream-time when folk tales about the moon come to life. Katie’s sparkling, animated style includes mime and audience participation, combined with a variety of rhythm instruments, and a beautiful jungle backdrop. The stories in this popular show are Anansi and his Six Sons, from Africa, Coyote and the Laughing Butterflies, from the southwest United States, Papagayo, from the Amazon rainforest, and more. 45 minutes.
"Once again, your storytelling skills amazed the children! The kids, parents, camp leaders and librarians all enjoyed the show very much. The children especially enjoyed participating with special movements and sounds."
