Together we can prevent childhood obesity and type2 diabetes with education and laughter.

Dinosaurs have issues too! This show follows the same format as above but the theme and all the puppets are dinosaurs. A funny and hilarious story about a T-Rex who eats junk food all day long. 

We know it's hard to find programs for the little ones, that's why we developed  "Reading is Fun". WC Gatchel reads a book, could be one of yours, or one that he brings and with the help of a puppet and some magic, WC turns the story into a fun time had by all. 15-30 minutes long and perfect for the littlest members of the school.

Chef WC Gatchel brings his own special touch to magic, lots of original food themed magic. Cookies, ice cream, fruits and veggies ( don't worry there's no mess) and at the end... even a birthday cake is produced. Packed with astonishing magic, hilarious puppet shows, top quality prizes, you can be sure this is a party the children will be raving about for weeks to come!

If your party is for a birthday, we make a huge fuss over the birthday child, where they get to help with the magic (assuming they want of course), They’re made the absolute star of the party!
