MOTHER GOOF makes story time come alive with
creative dramatics, story board, masks, puppets, and other props. She
enchants young audiences at schools, libraries, summer camps, and
birthday parties with a series of hysterically funny, energetic, and
interactive tales. A special "magic drawing board" comes alive to listen to and watch the story time, much to the delight of the young audiences (and the old ones, too).
Tickles teaches young children about keeping safe outdoors: Wearing helmets, crossing the street, approaching dogs, swimming and playing in the sun safely are some of the topics. With audience participation and magic, Tickles will educate while keeping them laughing.
CLOWN-PHOBIA! (AKA BUILD-A-CLOWN): A unique show designed to eliminate the fear of clowns in young children by demonstrating the magnificent transformation from “regular person” to clown, followed by a magical performance. For schools, camps, birthday parties.
WACKY WITCH: Halloween Entertainment. Wild and wonderful Wacky Witch may not have the quickest broom in the closet, but she'll have your monsters in stitches with monstrous magic, funny fortune telling, fantastic face painting, and scarcely-scary stories.
TICKLES THE ELF
TICKLES HOLIDAY SHOW! : Tickles the Elf is one of Santa’s helpers. She spends most of her time in Santa’s Workshop, but today Santa has sent her to entertain the children while they wait for the big day. We suspect Santa just wants to get her out of his way for a while. But if you want to laugh, Tickles the Elf has the right magic for you. Limbo under a giant candy cane, give Rudolf flying lessons, assist with silly holiday magic…and don’t forget the face painting!
HANUKKAH and PURIM SHOWS!
HANUKKAH Or PURIM PRINCESS: Oy Vey! Princess Meshugana comes with her zany version of the holiday stories, silly holiday magic, and a full show to celebrate the occasion. For Jewish Day Schools, Hebrew Schools, Purim Carnivals, and private parties. Book early.
