Pendleton County Public Library – “We had the Wump Mucket Puppets do a Summer Reading show for ages 3 through 5th grade. It was fabulous! Mr. Burke was easy to work with. He showed up early to set up his puppet stage.  He used all hand made puppets.  After the show, he answered questions, gave the kids coloring sheets, and even let them see backstage. The kids and adults loved it.  An added bonus is that he is very reasonably priced. I will definitely have him back.”  – Sandy Florence, Children’s Librarian, Pendleton County Public Library

Wise Temple “What a delight Wump Mucket Puppets were for our forty 4-10 year olds on a Friday night!  The children laughed, listened, talked to the puppets, and were entertained for 40 minutes of good old fashioned fun.  Terrence Burke and his puppets have the perfect blend of humor and playfulness for our kids!” – Barbara Dragul, Director of Education and Lifelong Learning, Wise Temple

Taft Museum of Art “Thank you for a fun show – the kids sure did love it!   Looking forward to next time…”   – Mary Ladrick, Manager of Public Programs, Taft Museum of Art

Anderson Public Library “Terrence is talented beyond measure, but his love for the puppets and making children giggle is what captured the heart of APL.  I would highly recommend his performance, he is prompt and professional.  He also gave the children extra attention after his performance.  Excellent job!” – Sherry Noon, Youth and Family Services Manager, Anderson Public Library

Cincinnati Art Museum “The kids really enjoyed your puppet show.  It was wonderful working with you”

Trimble County Public Library“The Wump Mucket Puppet Show was a great hit with our elementary-aged kids participating in the Summer Reading Program!

Cincinnati Family Enrichment Center“Thank you for the wonderment.  An amazing show!  Bravo!!!” – Sharon Said, co-founder

The Compass School “Mr. Burke had a fantastic rapport with the children.  He showed the children how a puppet comes to life- from the initial idea sketches to the final product.  He introduced us to his puppet characters and let the children explore his props.  He emphasized the importance of imagination, and the children walked away with several ideas and inspiration to create their own puppet characters.  Mr. Burke created a positive experience for the children where they could learn and have fun at the same time.  I look forward to working with him in the future.”  – Allison Greer,  Kindergarten Teacher

Resurrection School “Thank you so much for bringing the Wump Mucket Puppets and performing at the Summertime Fun camp.  The students were very excited and really enjoyed the performance.  We made some hand puppets and the students  improvised their own puppet shows later in the week.  They were inspired by your performance and were still talking about Cyril and Coleman at the end of camp when we invited their parents to a presentation on the final day.  The students did not have to pay to come to camp so your donation of time and talent was greatly appreciated.  Your performance was one of the highlights of the two weeks at camp.”  – Joann Browning

College Hill Farm Market“What fun to see so many children engaged and laughing. Thanks Terrence!” – Dianna Porter
