Public Speaking Should Not Be Intimidating!
A comedic entrance sets the mood for this fast-paced assembly as The Speech Doctor, Kathleen Williams, PhD, immediately grabs the audience’s attention.
With the help of student volunteers, she diagnoses various “Speech Sicknesses” such as mumbling, poor eye contact, lack of expression and low volume. Oversized props containing effective cures add humor to the show, while providing valuable instruction - as each “patient” rapidly improves.
This highly interactive, laugh-out-loud funny program provides strategies that will enable children to speak with confidence, clarity and expression. The Speech Doctor’s warm, friendly style and positive ideas help students combat stage fright and overcome speech anxiety, preventing a life-long fear of public speaking. This program meets NJ Curriculum Standards for Language Arts Literacy.
Classroom Workshop and Residency available
|The Two Legged Nation|
Respect for One Another and Respect for Self
For Native Americans, storytelling is important in teaching responsibility, respect, and how to live in a good way.
Listen for the lessons as Little Hawk shares his account of “The Two-Legged Nation.” This story tells how we are all one family living in different rooms of the same house and that respectful behavior is a choice each of us makes.
“How Helping Hands Got His Name” is an enchanting tale about a Native American child who was a bully, but learned that to make others feel bad makes us have bad feelings about ourselves.
This is an interactive assembly that addresses Character Development and Anti-Bullying issues in an enjoyable, effective way. Little Hawk captures audiences with his words, actions and manner - drawing students in and encouraging them to think about the type of person they want to be, the choices that they make, and their contribution to “The Two-Legged Nation" that they live in.
Grades K-12; College & Adult • Great Family & Community Program Available

Before attitude is a problem…
Before peer pressure is a problem…
Before alcohol and drugs are a problem…
SELF ESTEEM IS THE ANSWER.
Scot Cannon brings students through one full day of school in this stage presentation, portraying an adolescent trying to make all the choices and decisions necessary to keep him going in the right direction.
The first 30 minutes is silent pantomime with an original background score of music and sound effects.
In the second half, Scot removes his make-up on stage and delivers his comic monologue filled with questions for the audience.
Using the memories of his struggle with an adolescent speech problem, Scot brings students closer to this message: "If you think you can or you think you can't... you're right." (Henry Ford) His battle to be understood and accepted gives hope and encouragement to kids desperately trying to pull it all together.
This Character Education program focuses on self-esteem and making good choices.
