Reviews: What Fairs and Festivals are Saying
“Cindy was absolutely fantastic at our Victoria Day 2019 Celebrations. She drew a large crowd and the singing, dancing, and participation levels (from kids and adults alike) throughout each performance was great to see – we are always looking for professional, fun, and high-energy shows and she was PERFECT! I personally had a great time working as Apoot- the Baby Polar Bear and would do it again in a heartbeat... Thanks again Cindy for a great day!”

“Cindy Cook and her animal friends have been a Haweater Weekend fan favourite in Little Current for the past two years. Cindy's contagious enthusiasm gets children, and their parents (who remember her from their youth on TVO's Polka Dot Door), singing and dancing in no time with her catchy numbers and timeless tunes. Cindy is a must have for your next family-friendly event.”

It was wonderful to see the children get so enthusiastically involved in her show and we will be honored to have Cindy and Owlie back in future years.
