What the Turtlesinger Does!
HI!  MY NAME IS KAREN BUCKLEY, AND I AM THE TURTLESINGER,  AND THIS IS WHAT I DO TO MAKE
MY LIVING:  I GO ANYWHERE PEOPLE WANT TO HEAR ABOUT AND/OR SEE TURTLES!  MY MISSION
STATEMENT IS "TO ENTERTAIN AND EDUCATE THE PUBLIC ABOUT TURTLES USING LIVE TURTLES
AND/OR ORIGINAL SONGS".  TO DATE, I HAVE WRITTEN
OVER 50 TURTLE SONGS AND TAILOR EACH
OF MY PROGRAMS TO THE NEEDS OF THAT PARTICULAR PERFORMANCE.  I DO PROGRAMS FOR ANY
AND ALL AGES!!!   (TURTLE LOVERS COME IN ALL AGES, SHAPES AND SIZES!)  I DO PROGRAMS FOR
PRESCHOOLERS, KINDERGARTENERS ON UP:   ADULTS, SENIOR CITIZENS!  I SING MY TURTLE
SONGS USING A FANTASTIC ROLAND KEYBOARD WHICH CAN SOUND LIKE A PIANO, GUITAR, FULL
BAND OR ORCHESTRA!  (PLEASE NOTE: I DO NEED ELECTRICITY FOR MY KEYBOARD!)   
I CAN ALSO
TURN THE PROGRAM INTO A MULTI-MEDIA EVENT WITH A PORTABLE DIGITAL PROJECT AND LARGE
SCREEN WITH TURTLE SLIDES AND MOVIES!  
MY SONGS COME IN ALL SORTS OF STYLES:  AS
VARIED AS THE TURTLES!   I ALSO MAY ASK THE AUDIENCE TURTLE QUESTIONS (AND GIVE OUT
TURTLE REWARDS JUST FOR TRYING!), MAYBE PLAY A TURTLE GAME, SOME OF MY SONGS ARE
INTERACTIVE, SOME EVERYONE CAN SING ALONG TO!  MANY OF MY SONGS ARE VERY
MOVEMENT-ORIENTED, TOO!  YOU MAY WANT TO GET UP AND DANCE!  EVERYONE LEARNS
SOMETHING ABOUT TURTLES, AND HAS A GREAT TIME!

IF DESIRED, I BRING MY
FOUR LIVE TURTLES (NAMED ROCKY, GRACIE, SPIKE,AND BART!) ALONG
WITH ME SO PEOPLE CAN GET A CLOSE LOOK AT THESE MARVELOUS CREATURES.  EACH OF MY
TURTLES HAS THEIR OWN SONG (SOON TO BECOME BOOKS FOR EACH TURTLE WHICH YOU CAN
BUY WITH OR WITHOUT THE SONG)!  ALSO IF DESIRED, EVERYONE CAN HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO
FEED
SOME OF THE TURTLES.  WE DO THIS IN A VERY SAFE AND FUN WAY BY SPEARING FRUITS
LIKE GRAPES OR BLUEBERRIES (SOME OF THEIR FAVORITE TREATS) ON CHOPSTICKS AND THEN
HOLDING THE FRUIT IN FRONT OF THEIR NOSES SO THE TURTLES CAN SMELL THE TREAT.  ROCKY,
GRACIE AND BART ARE USED TO THIS BY NOW, AND THEY OPEN RIGHT UP TO GET FED!  THE
TURTLES AND THE PEOPLE HAVE GREAT FUN!  I AM LICENSED BY THE NEW JERSEY DIVISION OF
FISH AND WILDLIFE TO DO THIS FOR YOU!

IN ADDITION TO THE
830 EVENTS I'VE DONE SINCE THIS ALL STARTED IN MAY, 2000 AT PARKS,
NATURE CENTERS, FESTIVALS, SCHOOLS, FAIRS, CONFERENCES, ETC., I ALSO LOVE TO DO P
UBLIC
BIRTHDAY PARTIES.  THERE IS NO MINIMUM NUMBER OF PEOPLE REQUIRED TO DO THIS KIND OF
EVENT!  TURTLE BIRTHDAY PARTIES INCLUDE SPECIAL KINDS OF FUN A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN
MY
USUAL PUBLIC PERFORMANCES, AND INCLUDE TURTLE GIVEAWAYS AND OTHER FUN
SURPRISES.  CONTACT ME FOR MORE INFORMATION IF YOU WOULD LIKE ENTERTAINMENT AT YOUR
NEXT BIRTHDAY PARTY YOU'LL NEVER FORGET!

TURTLESINGER PERFORMANCES!

YES, THIS IS HOW I MAKE MY LIVING
, WORKING THROUGH OUR FEDERAL 501(C)3 NON-PROFIT
PUBLIC CHARITY
.  THE LENGTH OF THE PERFORMANCE CAN BE ANYWHERE FROM HALF AN HOUR
TO TWO HOURS OR MORE, AND MY FEE WILL CHANGE ACCORDING TO THE AGREED-UPON TIME
YOU NEED, DEPENDING ON LOCATION AND OTHER FACTORS.
DON'T NEED A WHOLE SHOW?  HOW ABOUT A TURTLE TELEGRAM (SURPRISE YOUR CHILDREN OR
ADULT FRIENDS!), OR SIMPLY A HALF HOUR OF TURTLE FEEDING FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY (OR OTHER
OCCASION) PARTY?  CONTACT ME, AND LET'S FIGURE OUT SOMETHING THAT WILL WORK FOR BOTH
OF US!

JOIN IN THE FUN OF THE TURTLESINGER PHENOMENON!
