NEW for 2018… “Fun With Ventriloquism!” or “How a Little Library Book Changed My Whole Life!”
When David Pitts was a little boy, he spent a lot of time in the library. One day he found a book called “Fun With Ventriloquism”. He was immediately fascinated, and went on to check the book out over and over again. This little book sparked a life long interest in ventriloquism, magic, comedy, puppetry, performing and in LEARNING new things from library books!
This fast paced show is all about the impact of reading and the wonderful worlds that libraries can open for young readers.
“The Evil Dr. Sketchy Stole My Library Card!”
Frank the Wonder Dog can’t find his library card and he thinks it was stolen by the Evil Dr. Sketchy, but was it? It’s a mystery that can only be solved with a lot of imagination and the help of the audience.
This fun and funny presentation includes lots of magic, ventriloquism, cartooning and audience participation, plus lots of fun facts about libraries and the power of reading!
San Antonio based children’s entertainer, David Pitts, a.k.a “The Astonishing Mr. Pitts”, was practically raised in a library! His mother was a librarian in Amarillo, Texas for many years, and she introduced David to the wonders of reading and the library at a very young age. Mr. Pitts has been a lifelong fan of books, reading, and the library. He spent many happy summers participating the Library Reading Club Program as a child. He brings his genuine love and enthusiasm for reading, books, and the library to all his shows!
All presentations are 45 minutes in length, and include amazing magic tricks, funny puppet characters, cartooning and lots of audience participation. The show is fully self contained. We provide tables and sound system for audiences up to 250 people.

Thank you so very, very much and I’m hoping you can come back again next year. The kids loved you and your puppets. You we’re GREAT!

Mr. Pitts came and gave two back to back presentations for us, one for elementary age and the second one was for all members of the family. He responded to the audience, got them interacting and made the children laugh. I think he did an excellent job and I would definitely recommend him!

I just wanted to let you know that you did an OUTSTANDING JOB with our little ones. The teachers all had positive things to say about your performance. I am definitely going to invite you back!
