Library Shows
NOW BOOKING 2022

It’s time! Time for laughter and encouragement with your young readers.  The NEW Deep Sea Circus show is coming in the summer of 2022. Many librarians (just like you!) have already chosen a date on our calendar. It’s YOUR time. Contact us now.

Deep Sea Circus
Swim right up! The Deep Sea Circus is about to begin. Sam, the ocean’s funniest sea turtle, delivers the laughs. Ringmaster Mr. Barry features funny fishy trickery. Watch for a special appearance by Hyena the Laughing Chicken of the Sea. It’s more fun than a tuna fish on a unicycle, with a treasure chest of favorite books and reading inspiration.

What do Librarians Really Think?

After each program in 2019, librarians received an anonymous email survey. Here are a few of the comments for the question, “What did you like/dislike about the program?”

 

“From start to finish, our audience was engaged. They loved the suspense when the evil aliens were about to be discovered. The parents told us how much they enjoyed it, too.”

 

“Barry’s timing is spot on and has a very good understanding of what makes kids (and adults) laugh. I cannot honestly think of anything I did not enjoy.”

 

“Very entertaining! The humor spans all ages, so it kept the adults entertained as well! The facts about scientists, astronauts, and space was a nice touch. No complaints/dislikes”

 

“I loved how Mr. Barry had books there based on the theme and how he talked about reading. He promoted the theme more than any other performer we’ve had. There was nothing to change or improve on.”
