What Festivals Are Saying

"It's hard to believe that Horn's Punch & Judy Show has been entertaining children and family audiences at the Fell's Point Fun Festival for over 16 consecutive years. Your show has become a real tradition because we now see 20-something's, who loved your show when they were kids, bringing their little ones." – Denise Whitman, Fell's Point Fun Festival, Baltimore, MD

"It's clear that the outdoor theatre space that we've provided for your performance has been 'sell-out' audiences with standing room only! The laughter of adults and squeals of children during each of your performances can be heard all around the Fair site. Long live Horn’s Punch & Judy Show into the 21st century!" – Melissa Groppel, George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate, Alexandria, VA

“Your Punch and Judy show is an element of our annual festival that our guests (and staff) look forward to the most. An act that is equally entertaining to both our youngest and oldest visitors is difficult to find, but you found a way to do it!” – Lisa Acker Moulder, Betsy Ross House, Philadelphia

What Others Are Saying

"To our surprise and delight, Prof. Horn's Punch and Judy production at our annual British Garden Party was an authentic recreation of the memorable puppet shows from our childhood.

This is truly an experience for all generations." — Priscilla and Dick Huffman, St. Stephen's Anglican Church, Timmonium, MD
