From elementary to high school, Atlanta Puppet scores big with educators and cultural arts chairs for effective, professional presentation. Here are some of the comments we have received:

Darlene Godfrey
Cultural Arts Coordinator
6th Grade Teacher
St. Joseph School
Macon, Ga

Students and teachers are still raving about your performance!  I loved it!  I just received a call from our art teacher who thought your presentation was a wonderful way to bring the arts to our school. Even the mighty 6th grade enjoyed the show. We are looking forward to another show in the future.

Peter Hart is phenomenal. The children loved him. The teachers loved him. He did a fantastic job and is a tremendous talent for Young Audiences . In addition, his puppets and props demonstrated valuable lessons about reading and math - a big plus. He is a definite must for every school lucky enough to have him!
Enclosed are teacher evaluations to further convey how much we enjoyed Mr. Hart. Thank you so much for making someone of his caliber available to our children

I found Mr. Hart very professional and dependable. Moreover, the show was a big hit! Even the Principal came up after the show to say that, even though she didn't consider herself a puppet show enthusiast, she was really impressed with this show and especially the way Mr. Hart incorporated his audience. She also noted the children remained so involved even at the end of the day when they are usually ready to go home. I strongly encourage other schools to consider this show for their school.

The best program we've had all year. The performance covered all strands of the curriculum and resources - creative, interesting ways teachers can blend fine arts in the classroom content. Excellent!

Jeff Winn

Saks Elementary

I have never had such a positive response from my teachers. Excellent program! Mr. Hart is a genuine and caring performer.

Lisa Sandler

From 2 years old to 8th grade - absolutely loved it! Truly keeping with Galloway's essence! Let's do it again!

Judith Foster

The program was very well organized and presented in a professional, interesting, and dynamic way. I hope the children will have the opportunity to see the puppet production next year.

Dot Brown
Arts Dept. Head
Central High School
Macon, Ga.
The excitement your presence generated here at Central is amazing! I have more students building puppets and interested in puppetry, hungry for experience than ever before. Even the one-act play has a puppet in it! Thanks for being here and inspiring us all - me included. I couldn't have imagined a better response for the school for a visiting artist. Thanks for all you did!

Long Cane Elementary
Atlanta, Ga.
His performance was excellent. He mesmerized and was in total control of his audience. The puppets were sensational. Mr. Hart did an excellent job explaining the skills he used (research, math, reading, etc.) in order to create his puppets and show. One of the best performances our students have ever experienced.

Virginia Hutchenson
Exploratory Art Teacher
Flynt Middle School
Georgia
Mr. Hart held the attention of our middle schoolers without any trouble. There was good audience involvement. We also agreed that the background material, historical, arts infusion, and cross discipline was exactly what we have been trying to do with our curriculum. They loved it! We had good questions. I have had no negative comments. It was a treat for us all.

Joanne Pritchard
Elementary School Coordinator
Georgian Country Day School
Carrollton, Ga.
Our entire elementary school was present with ages ranging from 3 to 12 years old. Mr. Hart arrived in plenty of time to meet me and set up his stage for a punctual start. He was professional and courteous to the adults and students and the show was captivating for all ages present, both with the movements and the music used. His enthusiasm and humor were both energetic and contagious. We had a great deal of positive feedback after the performance from both the students and the staff. I would recommend Peter Hart most highly and we all look forward to his return to our school in the not too distant future.

Principal
Bon Aire Elementary

(Teachers) expressed that the performance held the students' attention the entire time - no down time. Something happening every minute. Really enjoyed the program. Related the importance of sharing, going to the library and reading. Great show! I had planned to stay just 10 - 15 minutes because I was very busy. However, I could not leave the performance - very entertaining!

Rena Williams
Teacher
Tucker Elementary
Georgia
The puppeteer's enthusiasm was great, music and communication was great. Well organized, geared for grade level, total involvement from audience, art of puppetry explained, origin of puppets explained. Involved other cultures, library skills introduced, importance of reading as part of curriculum. Students behaved most appropriately. Students were very attentive.

Rosemarie Carmichael
Teacher
Long Cane Elementary
Georgia
The students were able to understand all that was said. Language was very good. The performance was not too long. They loved it. There was great interest in the puppets and how they are made. They thought it was so nice that they could share ideas and help each other. The performance touched on math, geography, social studies, and coordination. The students were able to understand that success comes from hard work and that hard work is rewarding.


Madrica Nettles
Para Professional
West Clayton Elementary
Georgia
Not only was it entertaining and age appropriate, but it was also educational. The children commented on how much they enjoyed specific characters. The interaction was excellent. It was to the point that the audience was never bored or isolated.
