February 2014


Stay warm this week by coming and laughing your way back to warmth!  This week is chock full of times to see a Big Ryan show - and I think I am pretty much covering the map - so people from all over have the opportunity to share in some storytelling fun!  I will be starting the week in Plymouth doing a show in the John Carver Inn for their guests and finishing the week in the same fashion with another show there.  Ending the week on a perfect note I also have a show at the Holmes Library Saturday! Check out the schedule below for all the dates:

As always, more information is available on the UPCOMING SHOWS PAGE with links to the venues.  Also, we continue with week 2 of the Preschool Building Stories at the Paul Pratt Memorial Library in Cohasset on Wednesday morning.  Come and join the fun! I look forward to a full week of shows and hope to see the events filled to capacity!  See you then!


Now that my son is out and about I have to get back to work!  This week I have a Preschool Building Stories starting up at the Paul Pratt Meorial Library in Cohasset - it begins tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10:00!  Below is the line up for this week:

My son was born last Tuesday at 8:30 in the morning and he is doing just fine.  My daughter is thrilled to have a little brother and it shows here where she fell asleep while snuggling with him as she watched a movie.  Welcome my little boy… you were a long time coming!


I always appreciate getting feedback and letters expressing how much the audience members liked the show.  Here are a couple of letters I recieved from a school I visited that were my favorites:



I guess today is brought to you by the letter “N” as I am heading to towns all starting with the letter “N” today.  Check my schedule below to see if you can make one of the shows:

  • James Library in NORWELL starting at 10:30am
  • Nahant Library in NAHANT starting at 3:00pm
  • Temple Shalom in NEWTON starting at 7:00pm

The Library shows are open to the public and I hope to see a lot of you there!  Make sure to bring your giggles as we will be doing plenty of that!
