New! Virtual programs now available
Kids Laugh as they Learn!
All MCP programs use arts in education to stimulate young audience’s minds to hear, see, and REMEMBER information-all done in a creative way. Art forms that are used to achieve these goals are brilliant ventriloquism and puppetry as well as masterful storytelling. A puppet cloud may help teach children about the water cycle. A talking book may teach the children the definition of words or proper book care. A boy puppet may help convey the emotional trauma bullying can cause. Stories told can inform, move us to tears, change our attitudes, and even inspire us. All this can be accomplished with laughter while igniting young audiences imagination.
Margaret knows kids. She has performed for thousands of children in hundreds of schools and libraries all over Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Now through her virtual programs she can perform all over the USA and abroad! She delights audiences with her interactive storytelling, puppets, ventriloquism, magic and humor. Getting children to remember a message is much easier if they “Laugh as they Learn.”
A former pre-school teacher herself and current professional clown, Margaret ties humor into all her educational messages. She has worked for Young Audiences of North Texas as both Mother Goose and THE Bookworm since 2000. Young Audiences is an Arts in Education Agency that sends performing artists into schools mostly in the Dallas area.

The age range these shows cover varies from pre-school up to 5th grade. Margaret invites you to take a few minutes at the section most relevant to your needs.
