With the Ta Daa Lady

TD halloween 2

“We had the Ta Daa Lady at our outdoor Halloween event in 2108, the telling the tale of “the Terrible Monster”. The kids engaged right away with Stumpy the Puppet, and they were completely involved in the story. They came onstage to be different characters and the Ta Daa Lady supplied costumes as well. Parents were smiling all the way through! Angela’s ability to engage children is a wonder to watch. Her sincerity and the way she tells her stories engenders trust from her audience and her story supported concepts of helping and caring about others. I worked with Angela in the late 90′s as part of a Vancouver Parks and Recreation program, Bandwagon, she was and still is a very gifted and professional performer. I was so glad to reconnect with her these many years down the road!”  Meghan Munro, Office Administrator & Member Coordinator, Mount Pleasant Business Improvement Area, 301-3102 Main Street, Vancouver B.C. 2018
