THE NYLON ZOO is a highly interactive event for the whole family. Angela Brown (The Ta Daa Lady) is owner & operator of the Canadian factor.
This event is a great fit for festivals, special events and private parties. It begins with puppet show followed by costume parade and dance ending with an interactive story inside the inflatable Sculpture.

Evelyn Roth Testimonial
“Angela became my site manager, storyteller and dance parade leader many years ago. Now she runs her own Nylon Zoo. She is the most talented, versatile and exciting performer I know…whoever she works with is blessed by henpresence.”

The Nylon zoo was in Tofino and Ucluelet with Angela’s long, sleek Blue Whale. The mother whale has her baby whale attached. The Ta Daa Lady also offered storytelling workshops as part of her package.
“Angela Brown is incredibly professional, fun and wonderful to work with. Hire her for your children’s entertainment. If you want great entertainment and an educational experience for your children, hire Angela for your event. She brings great entertainment for all ages! Children under the age of thirteen were all entertained!” Gillian H. Nicol Former Festival Coordinator, Pacific Rim Whale Festival
“I just want to say a great big THANK YOU for coming out to our World Rivers Day!! You were a HUGE success with your Ta Daa Lady show and the Nylon Zoo and we hope to secure you for next year! “Ashley Anne, Education Programs Coordinator, Langley B.C.
“Great job, as always Angela – I just love the energy, creativity and color you add to the Festival.” Dorothee Birker, Innovex Events, Kelowna B.
“Angela Brown, and her shows: “The Ta Daa Lady”, and her very impressive “Nylon Zoo” have been the highlight of our Kid’s area and stage for two consecutive years. She is hugely entertaining and engages the youngsters at some many levels, from sheer brilliant slapstick comedy, thoughtful (but always humorous). There seems to be something for everyone. She engages her audience all times, hosting a storytelling dance and costume workshop and then leading the group on a parade through the grounds. Very impressive! It would be hard to recommend a more professional, impressive, and entertaining children’s performer than Angela Brown.” Todd Stockner, Artistic Director, Kispiox Valley Music Festival, Hazelton B.C.
