this week

This week has been famous for being the busiest week of the year. This year didn’t disappoint - yet again I am performing 2 or 3 shows everyday until Friday of course when I get to spend the day with my little girl in P-Town. The shows this summer has been interesting - hit or miss - with the crowds. The weather has certainly been impacting the crowds but I’ve been lucky enough to have an enthusiastic group, no matter how large or small, at every show. For example, my show in Bourne last week had only 5 children but a couple of the kids, as their grandmother told me, have been looking forward to this show all year. That’s always so nice to hear! The show the following day at the Plymouth Library had a crowd of 100 and every child was laughing so loud. I’m looking forward to another busy week - I can’t wait to see what each new show brings!

I am also running a special this year - if you have booked for the summer just call and mention this post - you will get a “back to school” Fall show for just $100. The offer is good for shows from Sept 1st - Oct 8th. Call TODAY! (508) 641-5336.

I apologize for not updating my site last week. It was a doozy of a week! Now, I do have a few moments to let everyone know what’s happening this week. Not only do I get to visit schools I usually see annually but also a new place called “An Unlikely Story” which is a bookstore in Plainville - come and check it out! Travelling all over MA in the summer can have it’s perks too. Last week on my way to Belchertown I stopped by Purgatory Chasm. I will post pictures later. If you want to see some now you can go to Facebook and “Like” the Big Ryan’s Tall Tales page to see more updates.

My little girl turns 7 this week. As an added bonus she’s lost her first top tooth - one of the front ones - on her birthday! Someone told her that the toothfairy leaves double her age for a tooth lost on her birthday. That person would be my mother - her Nana. Thanks for that, Nana! My shows are getting revved up this week with double shows on Thursday and Friday! This is nothing though as next week the schedule continues to get ramped up! Make sure to take time out of sun bathing and splashing in the pool to come see a show - with temperatures reaching upwards of 90 degrees it’s best to take a break and cool off with some tall tales!

There are more shows added to the calendar - so take a look and mark your calendars - hopefully I am coming to see your town soon!

Once I arrived and saw there was no tent on the front lawn for the children to sit in the shade I talked with the event runner. She agreed with me that it would just be too unhealthy and dangerous for the show to continue as is.  Since there was no other place for the performance to be held we had to make the tough decision to just cancel all together.

A last minute addition to the July roster - I will be at the Bridgewater 4th of July festival right after the parade.  It’s a wonderful event and I will be there at 2:00 ready to perform - so make sure to come and enjoy yourself!

Just as I promised here are a few photos from my family’s Disney trip!  It was a blast!  On the first day we all had matching shirts.

Back from Disney and the trip was fantastic! I was in awe with the sheer amount of effort that Disney puts forth in giving their guests an experience they will never forget! The best part, of course, was watching my son and daughter enjoy their first trip to the Magic Kingdom. I will try to get some pictures up in the next few days.

I know there is only a few shows this week but that is because I am heading to Disney! This will be the first trip for Alexandra and Antone and my wife and I have not been to Disney together before so we’re all very excited! I am going to be gone from Wednesday until… well, early next week. So if you’re looking to get in contact with me you will have to wait until I get back. I will try to keep everyone updated with pics from my trip! Keep an eye out here!
