Gail Golden and the Wondermakers excited and educated every 3rd grader in the School District of Osceola County with “Story Soup” last year. Gail and her actors are experts in their fields. It is amazing to watch the engagement and enjoyment of the students as their imaginations are ignited by the stories being created. Within a 40 minute assembly, the captivated audience of 3rd graders had been provided meaningful learning experiences that are memorable because they were presented with student input and in a totally entertaining way. They learned all the ingredients that go into writing a good story. This program is the perfect marriage of literacy, theatre and imagination.

Thank you for a very successful, award-winning, community health program that has impacted 130,000 children at over 350 different schools in Western New York. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank each of you for your role in educating children about making a choice to never start smoking. Your professionalism and enthusiasm made this program truly memorable, which is key to retaining health message with kids. The feedback from parents, teachers and the community has always been top-notch and that is something that is very much appreciated by our company.

Joy and Alisse had a wonderful time with the children. We had 40 in attendance. The children eagerly participated, welcoming the opportunity to be on stage. With minimal props Joy and Alisse were many believeable characters. What a delightful way to tell some classic stories. Thanks to both of them for a job well done.

"Just wanted to thank you, Karen and Joy for another fun show. I had several parents stop by the children's room afterwards and comment on what a great show it was, so please pass the kudos on to the ladies! Definitely a fun way to spend and icy winter afternoon :)"
