“Thanks again Angela, your performances were fantastic! Families couldn’t get enough of your storytelling in the big blue whale, with children drawn outside to the cute baby whale. Good suggestion to have us provide a staff person for assistance with outside line-ups – you were very popular! And then to finish off the day as a second roaming character just shows the range of your talents. Children are naturally drawn to your expressive style –faces from the event photos say it all. It was great to meet you and we will definitely have you back to join more community events. Thanks for making our day extra special.“Melissa Evanson, Recreation Marketing and Planning Coordinator, Port Moody B.C. 2013

“Angela Brown and both her shows: The Ta Daa Lady & the Nylon Zoo have been the highlight of our Kid’s area for two consecutive years. She is hugely entertaining and engages the youngsters on many levels. There seems to be something for everyone. She engages the audience at all times, hosting a storytelling and dance workshop and then leading the group n a parade through the grounds. Very impressive! It would e hard to recommend a more professional, impressive and entertaining children’s performer than Angela Brown” Todd Stocker, Former Artistic Director, Kispiox Valley Music Festival 2013
