Tom Knight has been writing and performing for kids since 1988. Based in Ithaca, New York, Tom brings his musical puppet show to schools, libraries, theaters and festivals all throughout the Northeast.
The show is a vibrant collection of original songs and skits, each 3-5 minutes long, with variety enough to keep even the very youngest children waiting to see what will happen next. While Tom sings to pre-recorded music tracks, puppets like Henry the Magician, the Little Elephant, Andy the Recycling Guy, and Allie the Alligator act out the stories of the songs. Besides the visual appeal, almost every segment has a part for the audience, including hand motions, singing along, or doing simple dance steps.
Some of Tom''s favorite themes are animals, food, environmental science, and the importance of reading. With catchy melodies and playful lyrics, Knight''s songs are easy to remember, fun to sing, and often educational. His songs can be heard on his CDs, including When I Grow Up, Don''t Kiss a Codfish, Easy as Pie, The Library Boogie, and his latest: The Classroom Boogie!
