Did You Catch A Bug?

It’s summertime and bugs have arrived in Minnesota where I live. Children enjoy the discovery of these tiny creatures. So, this summer I’ll be doing a number of library shows on the theme “Catch the Reading Bug!” These fun-filled shows include magic, juggling, stories and audience participation fun. Most of the shows are in south central Minnesota this summer. If you’re in the area, join me! It’ll be fun for all ages.

The Next Step Is Almost Here!

I’m looking forward to teaching the “Next Step Workshop” with former Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey clown trainer, Jeff McMullen.  At this intimate coaching time (we only allow 15 attendees) we will cover performance theory, stage presence, comedy movement, humor concepts, how to relate to an audience, writing message-based routines, and more. rThis training time is going to be near Hannibal, Missouri during the second week of September. We want to help you with the “ins and outs” of effective presentations with a message. For more information, go to www.nextstepworkshop.blogspot.com

Summer Camps on the Way!

Karen and I are planning and preparing right now for a full summer of kids and family programs.

As of now, we have seven camps on our schedule along with other library shows, church programs and training. We have a couple of weeks still open for bookings in June and August, so let us know if you are looking for creative quality programs to share with kids and families.  We’d love to come and be with you!

Next Step Workshop

I’m currently talking with some other national-caliber performance instructors about presenting upcoming “Next Step” opportunities for physical comedy/clown performers who want to make the next step in their performance ministry.

We cover performance theory, stage presence, comedy movement, humor concepts, how to relate to an audience, writing message-based routines, and more. Let me know and I’ll get to you about this soon-to-be opportunity that will help you with the “ins and outs” of effective presentations with a message.
