FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

At what kinds of events have you performed?

 I have performed at schools, libraries, state fairs, festivals, church family nights, preschools, picnics, block parties, lodges, nursing homes and television. I have performed at every possible venue where puppets might add to the enjoyment.

What is the size of your audiences?

Because, after all, puppets are not as large as humans, I limit my audience size to two hundred and fifty. For larger crowds I suggest two shows and I give a better rate on the second.

How long are your shows?

Most all of my shows are between forty and forty-five minutes long. Perhaps you are thinking that this is too long for a young child, but I have solved the problem by structuring my shows so that there is something new happening all the time.

To what age does your show appeal?

All ages!  I believe that puppets are a whole-family entertainment.  I always have lots of action for the littlest ones, a lot of silly jokes for the middle ones and even jokes for the grownups. Everyone has fun at a puppet show!

How much do you charge?

Rates are variable and need to be discussed with me. I determine the rate on: a) how far I must travel; b)how much equipment I must bring; c) how large the audience; and d) the time of year.

Can you do an outside show?

Of course, providing there is no rain,snow, hail or high winds. In addition, I will not jeopardize my eyesight or the eyesight of my audience by playing in the direct sun. A place in the shade of a tree, a pavilion or a building will suit me just fine. If, however, you wish to have an outdoor show, I ask that an alternate rain site be chosen at the time you book the show.

Do you do birthday parties?

By all means! I have been entertaining the "birthday child" and friends for over thirty years. What easier way to create a memorable birthday than a puppet show? And Mom, while the children are laughing and shouting  at the puppets, you can be setting up the cake and ice cream.  At the end of the show I always gather the children for a "photo op"and then off to the table they go.

Do you come to people's homes?

Yes, I will come to wherever you wish.  I have set up in basements, living rooms, garages and on the lawn. I will also come to your club or your church social hall or any facility of your choice.

Do you bring a gift for the birthday child?

No, I don't. I believe that the show itself is the gift of the parents and I tell this to the child.

How much room do you need?

I need a space of six foot by six foot.  The ceiling height must be seven foot eight or higher.

What do you need from me?

Not a thing except a single outlet within fifteen feet of the setup area.  I come with my own stage, lights and sound system.

How much time does it take for you to set up?

Even though it takes me about forty minutes to set up, I always arrive an hour before the time of the performance.
