As always, Diane was a big hit at the fall festival, block party and the holiday celebrations with the residents and families here at Hogan Center.  Diane interacts with the residents, encourages them to sing and play along.  The residents, families and staff really enjoy Diane’s music, a great experience for everyone


Cathy Quesenberry, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Ancramdale, New York
“We had about 200 people, adults and kids, under our Children’s Tent. The audience loved her and we have asked her to come back and also to another festival in Rhode Island. She was on time, performed even more than we had asked, and was very flexible. Most enjoyable! You will not regret hiring Diane.”



Eva Karandanis, Harvey Mitchell Library, Epping, New Hampshire
“Diane’s puppet shows are exactly what you want a show to be – character building, fun, lively.  Diane really held their attention and the puppets and stories captured the children’s imaginations.   The children and adults talked about how wonderful the show was for a long time after. “


Karen Wilson, Stepping Stones, Derry, New Hampshire
“The children and staff here love Diane’s songs, stories and puppets. She captures the kids’ attention with humor, the storytelling and the projects are great. We love having her!”


Jessica Witkowski, World Academy, Nashua, New Hampshire         “Diane has a true dedication to her art form and special talents.  Her stage and props are handcrafted, and truly bring the atmosphere to life with special voices, interactive songs, and strategic lighting.  Both our toddler and preschool groups truly enjoyed the experience and were happy to be a part of it!  We have worked with Diane on several occasions and she has never failed to deliver.  We will continue to have her be a part of our ‘World’.


Amy Campbell, Harmony Learning Center, Bedford, New Hampshire
“The teacher’s couldn’t believe you held the attention of the 2-3 year olds! They really enjoyed the Elves and the Shoemaker. The Pre-K group was delighted and just loved your show! I’m planning to have you back this summer!”


Kitty Schacht, Youth Librarian, Mansfield Public Library, Massachusetts
“The families loved Friendly Forest Folktales and it was a wonderful way to finish up our Summer Library Adventure. One family said it was their favorite performance of the whole summer. I thought your puppet stage, and your lighting, worked especially well, and the stories were perfect for the age group. You mixed humor with gentle messages, and the program was a real treat.”


Martha Richard, Youth Service Librarian, Richard Salter Storrs Library, Massachusetts
“The girls & boys in the audience loved to hear your enchanting tales of friendship, sharing, & helping. Your focus on audience participation in you performance made the show entertaining & full of fun. You knew just what the audience would like & each little adventure was met with enthusiasm. We would love to have you back in the future.”
