Reviews of Nancy and Friends

It is my pleasure to recommend to you Nancy Burks Worcester. She is and outstanding storyteller, ventriloquist and teacher. Her message is always fresh, topical and relevant to student groups.Nancy is one of the few entertainers I have seen over the last twenty years that has the ability to entertain, teach and make her presentations entertaining while keeping complete control of her audience. Students are excited and receptive to Nancy year after year. Teachers look forward to her presentations too.

Nancy connects children to literature in a powerful and engaging way. I highly recommend her to librarians in every field.

I would ride a hundred miles on a camel to see one of her shows!

Nancy is my favorite spinner of yarns. She’s a storyteller’s storyteller!

I know of no one who can energize and engage children the way Nancy Burks Worcester can. Her shows are funny and fast-paced, yet she never loses sight of the fact that when children are listening, they are also learning. She is magical.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful puppet ministry with us last Saturday. You were awesome and the “kids” weren’t so bad, either. You have an amazing gift.  I’ve heard many comments from the ladies about how much they enjoyed your program. It gave us a really positive note at the end of our retreat. It was like taking a precious gift home with us and it is something to remember for a long time.
