Stories teach the imagination to fly



Mary Holma

Teller of Tales


Mary Holma, a.k.a. The Cat in the Hat, has been spinning tales professionally since 1999.  All will enjoy the exciting experience of Dr. Seuss’ books coming to life through her presentation of Seuss on the Loose.  Her sidekick, Mr. Limberjack, accompanies her and captivates the audience with his smooth dancing moves.  Dr. Seuss’ stories are entertaining and delightful to hear any time of the year.  Her program encourages kids to READ everyday!  (Click on Dr. Seuss Program above)

She also pulls out of her storytelling hat (no, not a rabbit), but a smorgasbord of folktales, fairytales, myths, legends, poems, anecdotes, and other engaging stories of a little of this and a bit of that, always carrying a poem in her pocket and a song in her heart.  Interwoven into her programs are participation, creative movement, props, songs and music.  

Mary has performed at libraries, preschools, elementary school assemblies and classrooms, a community college, Marcella June’s Coffee Lounge, church group events, community centers, festivals, reading programs and senior centers.

Programs can be adapted to themes.

Ages:  3 to 93!

Fee:  Every venue has a different budget.
