Show Reviews

“Special thanks to Damen Avenue Puppets for bringing the magic of traditional storytelling to life!  Susan and her “made from the heart” puppets brought laughter and excitement to the children at our summer camp.  The children especially enjoyed the interactive story of ‘Monkeys on the Bed’!”

“The Damen Avenue Puppeteers have entertained us over the last few years. Our three-, four- and five-year-old children always have a great time when they perform for us. Staff has never been disappointed with the clever, age-appropriate presentation Sue Witek and her puppeteers put on for our preschoolers. We definitely plan to schedule another puppet show for the coming school year.”

“Ms. Susan Witek presented her puppeteer show at our center-Mt. Prospect Child Care Center, as part of our celebration of the “Week of the Young Child” (2016). The children really enjoyed her story performances and Susan was awesome in engaging the children. Many of the children participated during her performance. The show was appropriate for young children, including some great finger plays. We highly recommend Susan for early childhood education entertainment.”

“I have attended several performances by Susan Witek. Each time she was able to create a magical world through her puppets that kept the children entertained and excited about fairy tales. The different stories she tells highlight values of kindness and honesty that reinforce important qualities that need to be taught at such a young age. Her personal demeanor is welcoming and professional and the kids always want to see more shows.”
