"School Reviews"

Most shows are private shows for public schools, yet we've had a good deal of positive written feedback - visit www.dianeligon.com to see some of them. We'll put one of them here:

"Our kids loved your performance! All the Kindergarten teachers loved it, too, since it was 'right up their alley'. Your show correlates directly with the Kindergarten curriculum in the areas of language development, recognizing familiar stories and versions of them, identifying character and setting, and responding to musical/artistic works in appropriate ways."

"Town of Dumfries"

I'd like to extend our heartfelt thanks to you and your fabulous Mother Goose Puppets. What a treat it was to see your performance at our Spring Festival! The feedback I've received from our residents was very positive and I hope you will consider keeping the Town of Dumfries in mind for future events. It was lovely meeting you and I hope we see each other again very soon.

Cathy Lambe, Director Community Services, Town of Dumfries, VA

Note: After this letter was sent, Diane was asked to return to Dumfries a short six weeks later to perform at their Charter Festival. - dianeligon.com

"Another Show Diane has performed in reviewed"

The supporting players are strong, with Diane Ligon as Earhart's lifelong friend Gwen Bowen conveying warmth and allegiance, while adding needed comedy.

Note: This show was Amelia's Journey, performed at the Chesapeake Arts Center in Brooklyn Park, MD - Baltimore Sun

"Diane at Classika Theatre"

Director Lilia Slavova uses three talented actresses, Caroline Kenny, Diane Ligon, and Marianne Myers as puppet masters, characters, and even set pieces. It's an imaginative combination of live theatre and puppetry. And the cool thing about it is that even with the puppeteers in plain view, the illusion still works beautifully.

Note: The Mother Goose show has the same director, puppet maker, and one of these three puppeteers, Diane Ligon - Metro Connection

"Composer of Mother Goose won Parent's Choice Award"

Micah Levy won a Parent's Choice Award for his arrangements in the CD, "The Probably Untrue Story of Mary Had a Little Lamb". We will submit Mother Goose's CD as soon as they re-open for submissions. - Parent's Choice Awards


Mother Goose and her Fabulous Puppet Friends - the CD - was released in June of 2008 and is available at Amazon, CD Baby, and iTunes. Samples are available on each of these sites but all the songs in full are available on Sonicbids. The CD also has all the songs without vocals to give kids the chance to sing on their own.



For this particular show, we took well known Mother Goose rhymes in the public domain and set them to different styles of music including country, opera, rock and roll, rap, classical, modern jazz, disco, and salsa. The show has a unique quality because it has a strong Eastern European influence - the puppets are made by Ksenya Litvak, from Russia, and the show was directed by Lilia Slavova, from Bulgaria.
