New School Show - STAR Power

Pockets Full of Fun is excited about our new school show called - "STAR Power".  This show is a character building show based on many of the pillars of character in the Character Counts program. STAR is an acrostic which stands for Share a smile and be Trustable, Accountable, and Respectful. These four things are discussed through stories, magic, song and FUN interactions with several friends from Pockets Full of Fun. This is a 45 minute program and all students will receive an activity card reminding them of the things they learned. Call to schedule a time for your school to enjoy this new show!

My new gospel show is ready for your church or Christian school! The show is called "Jesus Pours His Love on Me" and features Lily, Jemimah, Shiloh and Carmel. We will be learning about how Jesus love for us never runs out. We will hear the story of Jesus healing the man by the pool of Bethesda as well as other times He poured His love out on people who needed healing and help. As always there will be ventriloquism, puppetry, magic, songs and lots of FUN audience participation. Call today to schedule!
