Pied Piper of Lawrence

I was sponsored for 5 years by the Kansas Arts Commission (until it was disbanded by Governor Brownback) to present an afternoon workshop and evening concert of original music and storytelling. I would start with an afternoon Children's Theater Workshop, then the workshop kids would join me for an early evening performance. I would start with a short concert of original songs, then end with a theatrical reading of The Pied Piper of Hamelin, by Robert Browning. The kids played the part of the rats, scampering about wearing cute mouse ears.

The Experts Say...

"The Satanta Arts Council has hosted many performers from the touring roster, and Carter Performers have been among the best received in our community."

"I loved the song where the rats come in.
I still sing the song A LOT!"
Madeline, age 5, Satanta, Kansas
"Carter Performers surpassed our expectations. Larry and his crew communicated expertly with the children and treated them with respect and professionalism."
