It was enlivening to see the young audience delight in your performance. They were in awe one moment and then besides themselves with giggles the next.

Des has created the story of Leroy, The Magic Dragon to celebrate East Longmeadow's library expansion and to lead children through the process of discovering the magic and personal power of reading. The entire audience was enchanted with the program, the room was charged with energy! Her use of costuming, ventriloquism, music and storytelling was captivating.

The young children and their families who attended, thoroughly enjoyed the whimsical tales and the puppets who brought these stories to life. The children actively participated in the show, and their parents really enjoyed seeing them join in. There was plenty of laughter and fun!
