Last night I accompanied Lachlan (and Amy & David) to the Deepwater Theater for an hour of music, stories, and puppetry by Timmy & Susana Abell. It was a wonderful show, and the kids had a ball. Timmy played guitar, banjo, hammered dulcimer, and the dancing man. Susana sang and manipulated the puppets. Their shy South American sloth (who spoke Spanish) was a big hit. Of course there were opportunities to sing along, and to join the performers on stage. Lachlan loved it! (And so did I.)
If your youth or school group is looking for a kid-friendly and entertaining performance be sure to check out Timmy & Susana's web site: http://www.timmyabell.com/.
