 THE TA DAA LADY

SONG, DANCE, PUPPETS, CLOWN & INTERACTIVE STORYTELLINGTaDaaLadysmab@angelabrown.ca   604.649.1979

Ta Daa is a gentle, fun-loving, Charlie Chaplin – like character who sings, dances, clowns and pantomimes her way through all sorts of crazy antics. Her songs are call & response, songs like ‘Wash it Away’ where the children become raindrops with names like Drippy Drop Drizzle and “Dizzy Damp. Suddenly, appearing out of a red sock comes a puppet by the name of  Riddle Snake form a bag of stinky socks that the children and Ta Daa cooked a tasty recipe “Red Sock Soup” (song in video below- written and performed by Angela and her puppet Stumpy). Then suddenly appearing out of a red sock comes a puppet by the name of  Riddle Snake! The Ta Daa Show is entertaining for the whole family with lots of interaction for everyone…including dad!
