  • Annie "Banannie" Caldwell

    I'm a kid expert.  My specialty?  The 45-minute school assembly.  I have been performing since I was 10 years old and I've been making a full-time living at it since 2004.  With my background in theater and education, it made sense for me to combine these for my assembly shows.
    My job is to delight, astound, amuse, and teach.  I introduce topics in a way they've never heard before, allowing your students to look at familiar concepts in a new way.
    I challenge them to have enough confidence in themselves to be able to use their natural creativity every day.

    Too often, we allow kids to accept limits for themselves.  My dream is to help kids become so self-motivated to create things that they want to learn the skills they need, so they can realize the creation in their imagination.
    We all know that if a kid wants something badly enough, they'll figure out a way to make that happen.

    I have been working with kids for about 6 years now and I have never seen kids as excited and happy as I did today.

    Buster Balloon

    Yep, that's his real name.  Like me, he's also been performing for most of his life.  He specializes in balloon shows that amuse, inspire, and motivate your kids.
    Buster also just happens to be one of the funniest people on the planet.  He's performed all over the world, but since he's an Orange County native, he mostly loves staying right here in Southern California.  You can see his show at schools and libraries all over Orange County, Los Angeles County, and the Inland Empire.
    Get to know him better at www.BusterBalloon.com.

    The kids were mesmerized by your creations and absolutely loved your energy.  All of the schools have requested that I book shows with you for next year.

    Suzanne Haring

    Soozi joins me for the character ed show, The Perfect Human Project.  Like me, she has been a performer all of her life, with a rich family tradition of performing -- her mother and aunt were opera singers in New York and her husband is a jazz musician.  She also has had the advantage of being in the PTA for the entire time her son was in school, and now he's gone on to study music at the Aaron Copeland School of Music at Queens College.
    Soozi's irrepressible silliness and humor combine with her "mom skills" to make the Perfect Human Project the funniest and most fulfilling way for kids to learn "I can be the best me I can be!"
    You can get to know her even better at www.TheSooziShow.com.
