WHO IS TA DAA?

Ta Daa is a gentle, fun-loving, Charlie Chaplin-like character. In her Show, Ta Daa incorperates puppets (her favourite puppet Stumpy) interactive songs, dancing, clowning and pantomime. She gets the children laughing  while she makes her way through all sorts of crazy antics. Her songs are call & response, for example ‘Wash it Away’ (on backtrack of video below) the children become raindrops with names like; Drippy Drop Drizzle and Dizzy Damp. Ta Daa and the children cook a tasty recipes they sing Red Sock Soup.  And then,  some stinky socks appear from out of her yellow bag. A rather large sock has something in it. It’s a puppet by the name of  Riddle Snake who has riddles for the children.

QUOTES

 “I’ve worked as a theatre critic — and kids’ writer — for over 30 years. The Ta Daa Lady is the real thing. I happened to see her performing at a birthday party for a couple of four-year-olds and I was so impressed.  Those situations can be chaotic but the Ta Daa Lady very gently — and firmly — kept control. Best of all, she genuinely played with the kids in creative ways and they were enthralled.”Colin Thomas, Vancouver B.C. 2020
