What  Ruby's Commander Fans are Saying

As a children's librarian I heard great things about Ruby's Troupe but it was nothing compared to the actual experience. When meeting Phyllis and Debbie for the very first time, their energy and love for kids, books and puppets is infectious.  I left so excited to see them in action.

Ruby's Troupe came to the Grand Re-opening Celebration after flooding closed our small library.  They had two shows and it was a good thing, since the first show was standing room only.

Children and adults alike enjoyed a show written specifically for us.  The show incorporated a love for books, kindness to our friends as well as our summer reading theme. It was perfect!

After the show the kids big and small were treated to meeting the puppets and a time for pictures.

The Troupe was a big part of our celebration, even beyond the amazing shows. The puppets and their friends joined us at the re-dedication ceremony, visited with people as they toured the new space and let the older kids "get a puppet peek" inside their theater.

I could not have imagined just how amazing it was having Ruby's Troupe at our celebration.

Thank you so very much!

Our church has had the privilege of hosting 'Ruby's  Troupe" live on several occasions with excellent results!

The children who had the opportunity to view the shows were fully engaged, participating with laughter and enthusiasm. The themes presented were instructional and entertaining...and filled with quality and diversity of content.

I highly recommend the viewing of this material for children in either individual home viewing, or as a group or classroom activity.

Our Preschoolers have enjoyed visits by Ruby's Troupe time and time again! 

We love it when Ruby's Troupe is in town!

Our kids have the opportunity to learn about valuable life-lessons, through fun and energetic puppet shows! 

Meeting the puppets and puppeteers at the end of the show is very special too!

The kids can hardly wait to go back and create their own puppet shows after meeting Ruby and her friends!

Ruby’s Troupe was great! Debbie and Phyllis are real professionals and do an excellent job promoting books and literacy!!

Ruby’s Troupe has a great rapport with the audiences - young and old.  Seeing the smiles on their faces was pure magic!!
