Dear Friends,

Welcome to the 20th year of exciting educational assemblies peformed in the tri-state area (NY/NJ/PA) presented by Michele Van Allen!!!

The time has just flown by since I did my very first performance in 1996 at Stillwater Elementary School as a very nervous performer to a very attentive audience. The kids were so kind as I stumbled through the script and tried to remember all of my lines! Needless to say, it has turned out to be a wonderful experience teaching and entertaining thousands of children every year. I love presenting assemblies and looks forward to many more years to come!

All four of my programs have been extremely well received. The two social studies programs cover so much information pertaining to your curriculum and are titled Welcome to New Jersey and Pennsylvania Welcomes You. These shows can be performed respectively in those states. THE BLUE PLANET is an informative science program all about our earth's oceans and shares an environmental message as well. My latest addition, KIDS GOING GREEN, is an extremely timely science show concerning climate change and what students can do around their home, school and community to make a difference to help care for our planet.

GREAT NEWS FOR SCHOOLS IN NEW JERSEY!! The Clean Communities Program of New Jersey has recognized two of these programs - THE BLUE PLANET and KIDS GOING GREEN - for funding! It is possible to receive a grant for 100% of the cost for both of these shows! Hundreds of schools have taken advantage of this wonderful opportunity already; don't hesitate to call our office for further information on how to obtain funding.

My programs meet the high standards of the Arts Council of the Morris Area, Morristown, New Jersey, and the Westchester/Putnam County and Rockland County BOCES Art Council of New York. I have also had the honor of performing at the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton on a number of occasions.

You can view a full description of the programs on this website and don't hesitate to call my office for information about Block Booking Discounts, available dates and pricing. I look forward to working with you and your students!

Thank you,
