STAFF COMMENTS for Keaau Public & School Library Show by Maxine Aki, Librarian IV
"Bryce Aspen Stillwater was very professional and entertaining in her performance. She was able to capture and hold the attention of the older and more skeptical middle school audience at this event. Bubbles, The Balloon Lady would be wonderful to have for a future program for all ages due to her versatility and variety of repertoire!"
"Very good and entertaining. Enjoyable! Thank you for involving the older as well as younger members of the audience. Interaction with everyone was wonderful."
STAFF COMMENTS: Wailuku Public Library by Glenda Berry
"Bubbles was very colorful and full of energy. The audience loved her balloon animals which she created while telling three stories for young children. Each child was thrilled to receive a balloon animal at the end of the performance. After the stories Bubbles did several magic tricks with the assistance of young audience members. Her assistants got to wear a magic hat and cape and the little ones really thought they were magic. Everyone was amazed by Bubble's balloon twisting and magic. She promoted reading with the magic words, "Read Books".
All of the comments rated the program as Excellent. Here are some of the comments received: "We liked the magic tricks very much. The stories were creative and we liked how the balloons were made to match the characters." "Magic Show I liked helping." "I think it was cool how she twists the balloons." "This was entertaining. My children really enjoyed it." "I liked the magic part." I liked when she did the magic tricks."
