Mary Poppins a huge hit

We hired Linda Peck for our annual outdoor heritage festival. We enjoyed working with her and her human statue of Mary Poppins was a huge hit with children and adults, even in the rain! Linda was a delight to work with and very professional and thorough. She was well received and rolled with the punches. We hope to have her back in the future.

Excellent Family Entertainment!!

Linda Peck did a SUPER FANTASTIC job preforming and entertaining at a 4th of July Kiddie Carnival in Hinesburg, VT. She has a TON of energy. She is constantly busy interacting with the kids and preforming trick after trick! There is not a dull moment. I would recommend her, and would definitely hire her again for the Kiddie Carnival.

Excellent experience

This entertainment was excellent .. The show was more than we could have asked for .. Held the children's attention for the full show and made it very age appropriate for our preschool graduation.

Overview

Audiences have been intrigued by my combination of whimsy, magic and comedy in my one-woman performance. From getting stuck in an umbrella to ladders, scarves and peacock feathers, my props are unique, and audiences "laugh till they cry." I am interactive and mimic human foibles which make people go "Ah!" and rethink the things that happen as humans.

Additional Booking Notes

I am self contained, have my own sound system and lights.
