McMazing Tales

This blog is old news

We’re still as busy as ever! We’ve just been posting in more visible corners. Check out our recent and upcoming performances on Facebook at

An Honest Puppet for the White House.

Some of you have commented on the lack of McMazing programming lately at your local library. I apologize to my fans and ask for your patience. America, in her hour of need, has called out for a leader. I have answered that call in a bid for the White House. I, like many of you, believe America hasn’t been great since Bruce Springsteen topped the charts, and that it’s time to dust off our cassette decks, put those over-size tires back on our pick-em-up trucks, and haul this country out of the mud.

Join me on Facebook @
Together we will see our country through its dark hour, and have one rockin’ good time!

Your humble public servant,

One World, Too Many Zombies…

Summer is with us once again, and what comes with summer? Zombies also.

Possibly the only family friendly zombie apocalypse  in the history of the end of the world, this show has yet to leave an audience without stitches, breaking down the door for more. So grab the kiddies and come see us 100% free (courtesy of Uncle Sam) at any of the many libraries hosting McMazing Tales all across Utah!

Don’t be left out, like me.

Yes, I am the star puppet here at McMazing tales, which is why it came as a total shock to discover I had been completely written out of this summer’s extravaganza.  Ignored, put out to pasture, treated like an old used up sock. Darn them! Darn them all!!!! If it weren’t for the few remaining threads of decency that still exist…

Fortunately, this summers egregious act of negligence has caused more litigated heads to prevail, allowing me to resume my pampered pin cushion in the proverbial sock drawer.

Beginning this October, come enjoy McMazing tales all new show Pajama Monster at a Library near you. Then, in December, renew your faith in humanity as Ruby, the Christmas Cow saves, um, Christmas.

We’ll also be taking Pecos Bill on the road to elementary schools, ask your principle if it can be yours.

It’s all very exciting! Especially the part with me in it.


p.s. Please enjoy a few more stills from this summers performance.
