&puppets 101 


TEMBER'S TALES offers beginning drama students the opportunity to explore hidden talents, improve communication skills and ignite their imagination. Through theatre games and activities, campers learn improvisation, pantomime, puppetry, 

dancing, & stage movement.

Boys and girls ages 8-11 who want to learn amazing feats of magic and illusion can now experience an exciting interactive, hands-on program! Kids can learn card tricks, sleights

of hand, misdirection, coin magic, rope tricks, mind reading games, improve skills, performing tips, stage movement, voice, storytelling, acting, scripting, eye-hand coordination, and multi-task thinking.  Ms. September's Magic Camp boosts self-confidence and helps kids overcome shyness with an ability to entertain and make new friends.

We also offer a class to allow your kids to learn the basics about puppets. They will learn how to bring a puppet to life with simple skills such as mouth movement, eye contact, posture, and hand position.


How long do your programs last?

Most of my programs last for 45 minutes. I can adapt to whatever your needs might be.


Are you available on the date I need?
Call or email to discuss available dates.


Can we schedule two different programs on the same day?
It is possible. It depends on timing and the location of the performances. Call and we can discuss the details. I will try to be as accommodating as I possibly can!

What do the terms “Half Day” and “Full Day” mean?
Full day starts as early as you need and ends when the school day ends. This can be divided however you want, but usually it consists of 2-4 programs. It is also possible to split the full day between another school with no additional charge, so that each school pays only a portion of the travel fees. In other words, it is much cheaper to have two schools coordinate and split a full day and split the travel fees, than for each of them to pay travel fees.

Half-day runs either from the start of the school day until lunch time, or from just after lunch until the end of the school day. This allows for 1 or 2 programs per half-day.

How many students can participate in your assemblies?
I have performed for groups as small as 20 and as large as 500.  For optimum educational impact, I suggest 200-300 students of similar age as a maximum number per presentation. If you have more than 175 students per assembly, we recommend a raised platform/stage or elevated seating (bleachers) and/or multiple presentations.


Do we need to provide you with a P.A. System?
No, I bring my own microphones and sound system. 



What do you need our school/library to provide?
I bring everything we need for the programs except the warm bodies and electricity.  However, if you have a cleared stage or raised platform with steps, this is always a plus. A couple of water bottles would be nice if you have them, just in case I forget to bring my own. My shows are pretty much non-fuss programs, and don’t require a lot.

How far will you travel?
I will travel most anywhere; however, I perform most of my programs in Kentucky, Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina.  (PA) When I travel, I try to block book an area. If several schools in the same area schedule programs I will work with the travel fees.

What age/grade levels are the programs designed for?
Most of our programs are for K-5th grade. I differentiate vocabulary and key concepts to meet the audience needs. My Anti-Bullying show is for middle Schoolers as well as K-5


Is the best idea to divide our students by grade level?
Educationally this is a wise decision as it allows me to present age-appropriate content. However, from a practical standpoint, we know this is not always possible, nor is it required. Ideal divisions are primary (K-2) and intermediate (3-5), or one grade per assembly.


How much time do we need to allow between assembly programs?
Typically I can reset most of the programs in the time it takes to dismiss one group and bring in the next group (about 10-15 minutes). Most schools schedule shows an hour apart (45 minutes for the show, 15 minutes for transition).

Will you modify or customize a program at our request?
YES, if the changes do not impact the educational significance of the program. If you need specific topics discussed, please call me and we can talk about your specific needs.


500.00 for a 2-hour camp and 1000.00 for a 4-hour camp, and 200.00 for each additional hour up to 6 in one day. You can divide time between Magic, Drama, and Puppets 101 classes.

There is an additional .60 per mile from Georgetown, KY, OR  Richmond Hill, GA, Travel Fee.

I provide all materials for classes. The magic class will go home with a show in a bag they can perform at any time.

suggested size 15-30 students

suggested age 6-12

When is payment due?

I prefer to get paid on the performance day, but I understand that processing paperwork through the system can be time-consuming and frustrating and that you may not have control over the process. If payment will not be ready on the day of the performance, please call or e-mail me and let me know.
