my favorite kind of audience....

For storytelling family audiences, my favorite kind is when the parents listen to the stories and help to make the stories magical. They gasp, giggle, and react to the stories, and the kids are thus brought even further into the story. Their eyes widen. Extra movement stops. They forget about other agendas
It is incredible what a difference the people AROUND the kids can AFFECT the kids when they are at a performance. Parents who help keep the kids focused by not engaging in a lot of question-answering, not bringing out snacks during a performance, and who stay engaged themselves are making the performance more meaningful for everyone. It is wonderful when I have audiences like that! It can bring the performer to a higher level, too.
