This is me, Chris, and I am the founder of Ricky Roo & Friends Puppet Shows. I am also a preschool teacher in Berkeley, CA. I started doing puppet shows as part of my classroom curriculum about many years ago. I quickly fell in love with the open-ended nature of puppetry! It engages and connects people with simple truths. While it sparked my student’s imaginations, it also sparked mine. I began spending my free time dreaming up new worlds, characters, and stories.
Hello! My name is Ms. Alayna and I have been working with kids and puppets for many years. I am also an elementary school teacher in San Francisco. Before joining Ricky Roo, I created educational programming in New York City. I refer to myself as an “Edutainer,” a combination of educator and entertainer. I love to tell stories, sing songs and bring the puppets to life!
My name is Chano and I love to jam with kids all kinds of silly music. I play music in preschools since many years and children just can’t get enough of my funky beats on my awesome guitar. Also, my son and I come up with amazing stories which I play out with puppets to bring some magic into this world. What is better than to swing to music and laugh at puppets!
