Out of all the kids activities my son and I have done, this has got to be our favorite, as far a sitting down and still activities go. It was very entertaining for both my boy and I. I loved hearing both kids and adults laughing. I keep telling people about you guys. This show is absolutely beautiful. I wish you guys much success. Your work is incredible.

I just have to say at bed time tonight my kids told every detail of the show. How much they thought the witch was so scary and all the little parts they loved. Great job! You were officially the "favorite part of the day!"

Thank you very much for bringing "Lost in Storyland" to the Deerfield Public Library. I have only heard great reviews from our patrons which included the words "phenomenal," "fantastic" and "very entertaining." The Village Puppeteers were a big hit! Thank you!

If you ever get the chance to see The Village Puppeteers of Saugatuck, MI perform "Lost In Storyland", you absolutely must. More fun than I've ever had at a puppet show - absolutely hilarious, tremendous performances, beautiful puppets... just a fantastic show. I haven't felt that swept up in a show since I saw the Flying Karamozov Brothers ages ago.
Dear "young" puppeteers and theater artists,
I just saw The Village Puppeteers perform Lost in Storyland! Please study them. EXPERTLY handled from introduction to final bow. The design, script, acting, pacing, originality, simplicity and effectiveness of puppet design and manipulation, the characters, THE CHARACTERS all perfect! oh... and the tuffet! BLEW ME AWAY!.. not because of the type of joke but because it was so brilliantly handled and played that we, the audience, pleaded to the heavens for it do its thing one more time! This is solid stuff, the real thing and a standard to strive for.
Well said, Kevin! It's one thing to have show that gets all of the kids laughing, but when you've got a roomful of puppeteer "adults" laughing so hard that it hurts -- that's just some incredible work! Can't wait to see them perform again.
I agree with Kevin Frisch 100%. Young puppeteers take note of this and them. You have allot to learn from this show and these two men.
The comedic timing of this show is just perfect! You have to go along way to find a show that is this entertaining to both children and adults." ... "It is definitely a don't miss show for anyone interested in puppetry, or anyone who wants to have an amazing experience with their family. This show sets the bar very high.

The puppets were beautiful! The writing, acting, and timing were so fine, it would have been fun to see them just act it out sans puppets. These brilliant performers could have used sticks and rocks in place of puppets, and we still would have loved the show. Well done!
It was so funny and so well done! I loved it.
