“Escape from Couch Potato Land” …a fantastic and hilarious musical comedy! This original play uses super cool tunes that are bursting with energy, as well as comedy, magic, and interactive games to show kids it’s cool to lead active, healthy lives. Bo & Gigi get their audiences up singing and dancing about the importance of imagination, a good attitude, and fun exercise! (Read more…)

The Pipdillys have entertained children (and adults) for the past several summers. They vary their program to coordinate with the theme of the summer reading program so it's not the same performance every year. The Pipdillys arrive at the library early to set up and stay around afterwards for pictures with the children. Everyone really enjoys the program and we can always expect a large group at their performances.

The Pipdillys are repeat performers in our summer reading programs because the audience loves them. They arrive an hour before the performance to ensure we are able to start on time. They have pre-show music available adding to the excitement and anticipation of the show. They keep the attention of the audience, both children and adults, sprinkling in humor for all ages. They even had my twenty-one-year old son laughing along with the crowd and we all know how hard it is to engage young adults who think they've seen and heard everything. Their performance was just the right length to provide maximum entertainment and educational value. In our opinion, the Pipdillys are a must see because they are engaging and their topics are perfect for our purposes as a public library - reading, science, cooperation, uniqueness and more!

The Pipdillys made their 2nd appearance at the Summer Reading Club at the Red Oak Public Library. They were the Opening Kick off Program last year and this year I could not think of any better way to start the Red oak SRC than with the Pipdillys.

They are entertaining, engaging, and informative. It continues to amaze me that they write all the songs, the skits and the content of the show. The program was engaging to all ages, kids and adults.

In addition they are very professional with a strong grasp on what the libraries goals are all about.

I intend to start every Summer Reading Club with the Pipdillys.

Bo and Gretchen are amazing and very professional. This is the second time we have had the Pipdilly's back to the library. Their show is so engaging and fun and interactive that you want to bring them back every year. I love "Escape from Couch Potato Land" the chef character that Bo plays is one of my favorite characters.
I am amazed at how quickly they switch from one character to another during the show.
They are sweet to the children and will gladly take pictures with them after the show.
My biggest points of a good show is being able to hold the children's attention, be interactive with the children and make it fun for them and they exceeded at all of the above.
We LOVE the Pipdilly's in Electra and can't wait to have them back again.

Bo and Gretchen are just FANTASTIC right from the beginning. Once you send in an inquiry or a booking request, they are quick, detailed and efficient in all communications with you. Their performance….WOW, what a performance! They had everyone-from toddlers to teenagers to adults,-singing, dancing, laughing and enjoying such a GREAT time. Having Bo and Gretchen come out and giving an AMAZING performance is a great way to bring live-theater to any community, especially a small-rural community. Everyone is still talking about the performance weeks afterwards. If you are wanting to host an event with performers that engage and interact with the audience, provide a positive educational message, and is appropriate for all ages- Pipdilly’s are the ones to call.
