"I wanted to thank you for the amazing puppet show this weekend.
It was wonderful to see every member of the audience from 2 years old to 70 years old having so much fun! Your kind and respectful answers to the kids questions at the end of the show made each child feel valued and special.
I can honestly that Mike and his amazing family of puppets made my son's 4th Birthday party an afternoon we will all cherish.
Thanks a million,Mike!!" ~ Rachel

"Once again, thanks for the great show on Saturday! You are great with the kids and I am in total awe of your talent!" ~ Marina

"Just wanted to send a thank you for the great show on Saturday. The twins and all the guests loved it and I think the parents thought a puppet show was a great and different idea!! Even the 3 babies sat and watched the whole thing which was impressive!" ~ Stacey

"Thanks again! Just as I had hoped the show was engaging and fun for the kids and entertaining for the adults as well." ~ Joan

"Just wanted to say thanks again for the great party for my son's birthday last weekend. His younger brother was pretending to see a purple whale at breakfast, and they were discussing how their purple vitamins were more purple than the whale. My son is carrying around a little suitcase full of paperbag puppets saying he wants to be a 'puppet guy' when he grows up. The show definately made and impression! ~ Julia

"I was very impressed with the engaging performance. He managed to include and involve the whole audience with lots of humour and enquiries. He was very respectful of the children and their answers, even if they didn't make sense. i just wanted to let you know that this was one of the best march Breakshows that I have attended over the years. My kids loved it!" ~ Lisa
