"I loved the puppets, especially the large eyes and heads of the main characters. The script is clever and uses repetition in a timely manner to build the suspense in the chase scenes."

Betty Sommerville
Somerset County 4-H Fair

"I liked the fact that it kept to the traditional story. I felt like it was the same type of show that was probably being done many many years ago, which is a cool thing to expose my community to."

Josh Humphrey, Director

"Oh, boy, oh, boy, oh boy……. This enchanting production of the classic tale “Aladdin’s Lamp” held the rapt attention of a group of 15 or so children plus several accompanying adults for close to 45 minutes. Beginning with no introduction except a strain of eerie music coming from an unseen source, the velvet curtain of a small theater opens on a single character, Aladdin’s mother looking for her son, and at times as many as three characters are performing as simultaneously as possible given
a two handed puppeteer. The show is interactive, with the characters including the audience in a discussion of the action. And the children respond in sometimes hilarious ways. They buy into the illusion and are literally on the edge of their seats for most of the production, giving advice and direction to the characters. Like most classic children’s tales, the story raises moral/ethical questions and resolves them with the elimination of the bad guy and the magical triumph of goodness and true love.
The adults in attendance enjoyed the show as well, and everyone left happy. We would all recommend it."

"It is hard to keep thirty 6 year olds engaged, but they really loved the puppets and being able to call out answers
and tell the puppets what to do."

"Rock-A-Day Johnny was the highlight of the concert.  I loved all your stuff. It was not only humorous but gave
the audience  another  look at what a true  multimedia event can be.

I would really appreciate it if you would  contribute another of your works to the next concert in March. The theme
is  "Rituals" and is open to many aspects of the
theme.

Thanks, and hope we can do another  together."
