Jonathan Kruk has a way with the spoken word,

the telling gesture, the sprinkling of humor,

and the appropriate costume for a smorgasbord of stories.

        Literacy through Listening

I know the story in these pandemic days. Children squiggle before the screen.  Adults have shorter attention spans. Count on my thirty years of experience to engage your audiences with tales tailored to your interests and themes.                 Get a show proposal below.


Mr. Kruk’s performance is so colorful and

stimulating, it makes you come alive.  

He is a fantastic storyteller!  

Your imagination tingles.  

Child or adult, you become completely captivated as he uses his body, voice/ sound effects, and hands to make his characters practically appear in front of your eyes.

               ... Phenomenal! 

   I could have listened to him                 over and over.

             ... very inspirational.
