Ventriloquist & Magician »
This was the best show I've seen in a long time and the rest of the staff felt the same way. You made me a hero! One veteran teacher said it was the best show she had ever seen done in a school and has never seen her class enjoy a program so much. It was just wonderful. You really are a gifted talent. --- Amanda Smickle, Franklin Elementary School

Linda combines comedy magic, audience participation, music & songs, storytelling, and ventriloquism using two or three different characters. You never know who will be in Linda's company. It might be everyone's favorite BABY CHUCKEE, BOWZER PUP, MIKEY, DUDLEY DRAGON, ZIGGY POSSUM, LOUIE LION, JERRY - they are all amazing and life-like.

THE MAGICAL WORLD of BOOKS encourages children to enjoy the magical moments of reading. In every assembly Linda chooses several books to talk about. Of course, being a magician, all the while she's talking about the books she's doing magic to bring the words alive. They learn that reading leads to knowledge and knowledge is power.

You won't believe your ears or eyes.
