"Mr. Damon had us all cackling - the staff, the parents, and especially the kids! He has an amazing talent for turning obscure tales into something new and memorable. Mr. Damon has been a favorite with our library system for several years now, and we can't wait to invite him back again. We highly recommend his shows, you won't be disappointed!"

"The show was so funny I literally spit my coffee out." - Ms. Pumpian (Mt. Bethel Elementary)

"Loved your performance on Saturday. The artistry and creativity were astounding. The story, the art, the humor, the music—it was all excellent and made for a spellbinding performance. The puppet craft was great too and how you integrated that into the performance." 
- Mr. Ken, Peachtree Branch Library

“Mr. Damon does an exemplary job of performing. His use of audience participation is very engaging for our mixed age audience, and he is well loved by both parents and children.”

"Our students were absolutely rapt at every performance and were tremendously excited to see his work. He is a consummate performer and teacher, and engages every age level with such enthusiasm and joy; it's infectious. We have asked him back year after year, and he is a highlight of our program. He's educational and entertaining; you can't ask for a better combination!"
- Dierdre Paschall, Roswell North Elementary School

"Mr. Damon kept my daughter engaged for the entire program.  It was inspiring to see father and son performing together.  Lovely creativity and educational variety of techniques.   Great storytelling mixed with child appealing humor."

"Mr. Damon’s shadow puppet workshop has been the highlight of our Summer Reading Program this year! This is an apprehensive group of young teens and tweens and Mr. Damon had them learning and laughing and even performing in no time! Because they got to work together in small groups, I witnessed many new friendships being made. They all loved creating their own characters, making up their own stories, and watching it all come to life on the screen! I highly recommend this workshop for teens/tweens!"
