"The kids LOVED IT!!! Tait did a great job of keeping them engaged and
entertained!!! He's friendly and professional. The finger puppets in
the end was a nice touch! Would definitely hire him again!

was absolutely spectacular. It is very difficult to offer something
that children who are 2 and children who are 8 are all interested
in, but somehow you managed it. They couldn't take their eyes
off of your marionettes. You filled our school with laughs, and
the students could not stop talking about your show! We will definitely
have you back in the future."

and his Puppets were a huge success at Laguna Hills Mall "Summer
Fun Wednesdays!" The kids (and adults) loved his show and
the giggles and laughter echoed throughout center court during
the performance. We are looking forward to having him back again
soon. One of our favorites!"
Lynn M. - Laguna Hills Mall,
so much for such a wonderful marionette performance! Your show
was a huge success with our little ones. Your expertise in allowing
the children to interact with the puppets during the performance
was perfect! Entertaining 100 children between the ages of 2 through
7 years of age is not an easy task. You made it look so easy by
engaging the children. I would like to book the Halloween, Christmas
and Easter shows as soon as possible. Thanks again. We are looking
forward to the Halloween show! All the best of success to you!"

so much for coming to our carnival. Everyone loved it and I would
not change a thing!
The show was spot on perfect for our kids and the parents enjoyed
it as well. Again, thanks."
Julie B. - ABC Adult School,
"We hired Pullin'
Strings Puppet Productions for my son and daughter's birthday
party. It was the best decision ever! Tait Hill is professional,
courteous, punctual, and easy to work with. His fees are reasonable.
There were over 50 children ages 5-10 and their parents in the
audience and Tait kept everyone young and old entertained, laughing,
and amazed the entire time. People are still talking about his
show days later, and our children are already asking when they
can see his show again. Tait demonstrates great artistry and skills.
He helped to make our children's party a very special day.
Thanks so much."
Wendy and David O. - Irvine,
"Tait is very
professional and arrived on time. My daughter LOVED the puppet
show (so did the rest of the kids in her preschool class). Tait
exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended."
Teresa K. - Los Angeles, CA
"This was an
incredible show. I was having a semi-formal event and the children
were so enthralled by the creativity and fun for the entire time.
Thank you Tait and the Pullin' Strings company! You helped make
my party fabulous! My daughter is still talking about it. I highly
recommend this for anyone. A true professional."
Helena S. - Newport Beach,
was terrific. He showed up on time. Easy to work with and extremely
professional. Set up and breakdown was seamless. 50 plus kids
sat enthralled during Pinocchio. All the kids had a terrific time
and parents were all enthusiastic!"
- Birthday Party Mom, Eagle Rock, CA
had ages 4-12 in the audience + some college aged volunteers and
everyone was kept entertained and laughing throughout the whole
show. I would highly recommend Pullin' Strings and really appreciate
Tait reaching out to us to provide our kids with a new experience!"
P. - Thomas House Shelter, Orange, CA
all enjoyed the puppet show at my son's 4th birthday party. There
were children in attendance from age of 10 months to 8 years,
and each child laughed and applauded during the show. The adults
were also entertained, which is a bonus. Our planned outdoor party
was unfortunately rained on, and Tait was able to put on a great
show for about 30 people inside our 2-car garage. The "Cavalcade
of Puppets" was perfect for my son's outer space-themed party,
as the alien, "Bob," fit right in. It was also an advantage
to have a local O.C. puppeteer perform as most of the other puppet
shows I looked into were from L.A. or the San Fernando Valley
and would charge extra for the travel time, something that would
have been more risky considering the rainy weather. Thanks for
putting on a great show!"
- Brea, CA
show was TERRIFIC!
"What a fantastic show for the children at our center and
their families! Tait Hill and Pullin' Strings Puppet Productions
are extremely professional, prompt, engaging and very accommodating.
I would highly recommend this company to anyone and we will definitely
work with them again in the future. Thank you Pullin' Strings
for giving our families an experience they will remember!"
Amy A. - Newport
"Great Show! Long enough to make it cost effective and
short enough so it did not lose the attention of the children.
Well worth it and would hire them again."
- Ladera Ranch, CA
"He was fantastic
and entertaining not just for the kids but also the adults. Talented,
funny and very easy going. He managed to get my shy child up in
front and enjoy her little moment in the limelight. ;) We've seen
him perform a few times now and love it every time!"
Bonnie H. - Lake Forest, CA
A very enjoyable show for all the kids and adults. Very professional
and worth the money."
Teresa R. - Rancho Santa Margarita,
"Our school had an assembly
and had a puppet show. The show was funny, informative, and educational.
The kids loved it. Would love to have them next year."
Debra A. - Longfellow Elementary
experience was great. Even when we had to change the party date
at the last minute, Tait was helpful in making another date work.
I heard nothing but great reviews from our guests. Kids &
adults alike thought the Christmas Marionette show was funny &
entertaining. I look forward to working with Tait again next year."
Jessica P. - JMKC Express
"We were delighted
with Tait Hill's performance. The kids were really excited about
the puppets, but even more than that, all of the adults enjoyed
the show as well. It was a very professional and polished performance.
Tait interacted with all of the audience in a charming manner.
He had a nice variety of marionettes, all of which he designed
and built himself. He also brought up a volunteer who got an introductory
puppet lesson. There were a few theatre professionals at the party
(myself included), and we would all recommend hiring him."
Erin A. - Birthday party mom,
"Tait was excellent with the children, he was extremely entertaining
and funny. I would recommend him for any party. He was very professional,
on time, and nice. The puppet show was very entertaining, funny,
and creative. Thanks so much!"
Dania A. - Long Beach, CA
"Mr. Tait came
to our school and presented Pinocchio for our children from ages
two to five years old. All our children and teachers loved the
show.. He had passion for what he does and was very good to our
children. I highly recommend Mr. Tait."

Thank you !"

for doing such a great job at the Members Event this last October!"
Alica D. - Pretend City Museum,
went so smoothly! You showed up early to set up, made the kids
feel comfortable during the show, and the finger puppets were
a hit. Some of the adults wanted to have one. My 4 year old tries
to reinact your show in his play room. My two year old fell in
love with pinochio. Great memories, thank you."
Tania H. - Torrance, CA
much for putting on an amazing show! This was by far the best
birthday party we have had. The kids were totally engaged the
entire show. I kept looking around and seeing huge belly laughs
and great expressions on the kids faces. Every single kid stayed
put throughout the show and did not get distracted by anything
else going on. The adults and parents at the party were equally
entertained. I can't even begin to tell you how many adults came
up to me after the show to say they had never seen a live puppet
show. Everyone wanted the information so that they could consider
it for their own parties.The puppets were all beautiful, and they
all came to life during the show! I would definitely have this
show again as well as recommend it to others."
Sue H. - Laguna Hills, CA
Tait was professional and reliable--responded promptly to emails,
gave clear information, showed up on time to event, was quick
and thorough with set-up and clean up, and did a great show. The
kids (mostly ages 3 to 5 years) and adults loved it. He has a
great sense of humor and fun attitude, and his skills as a puppeteer
Caitlin P. - Birthday party
A Cavalcade of Puppets at my daughter's birthday party. The marionettes
are beautiful and he knows well how to make them alive. Tait was
professional, funny and great in keeping the kids engaged all
through the show. Children and parents were delighted by the show.
Tait was also very kind to include Pinocchio in the cavalcade
as a special gift to my younger daughter. You will be amazed to
see what the marionettes can do. I highly reccomend this show
in every sense. I want to stress on how the marionettes are beautiful
and well built. The pictures on the website are beautiful but
the real puppets are gorgeous. Thank you Tait for an excellent

was very entertaining and my group loved it and the seniors really
had a good time. I am sharing this information with our friends
in business and family because we had such a wonderful time."
Martha W. - Santa Ana, CA
all the way. Tait is a role model for other performers. He showed
up early, had a swift and seamless set up, brought his own giant
poster with showtimes, was pleasant, professional and most of
all his marionette shows were highly entertaining and audience
grabbing. He had the kids engaged with his interactive dialog
and made them feel like part of the show. The enthusiastic cheers,
laughter and call out responses from the audiences were on the
spot testimonials and rewards for this puppeteer's talent. Highly
recommend and one of the best children's shows we've had at the
O.C. Market Place."
Jill L. - Costa Mesa, CA
enjoyed the show. Tait did a great job engaging the children with
his performance and the children were thrilled to see the puppets
come alive in front of them. It was quite amazing to see that
Tait can package his entire show in just a few boxes. I appreciated
his efficiency and professionalism. Thank you for a great show."
Sandra S. - L.A. Gospel Church
"This was one
of the best marionette puppet shows I have ever seen! Not only
did the kids enjoy it but the adults thoroughly enjoyed it also.
Tait Hill was very professional, engaging and funny. We would
recommend his show to anyone!!"

to tell you how AWESOME I think you are!!! Anyone, any age who
has the chance to experience your puppet shows, will never forget
the talent and creativity that you put into each performance!!"

"I just want
to thank you very much for a wonderful performance and talk you
gave for our HHAA luncheon. It was one of the best talks we've
had and the puppets were just enchanting. You are a talented artist
and a nice gentleman. I wish you well in all of your future productions."
