Monkey Monkey Music is seen on nationwide public television on both independent public television stations and PBS member stations. Her music teaches a broad range of preschool topics which include numeracy, movement, nutrition, and literacy. "Meredith sang a song about picking fruit in a garden and everyone felt like they were there in that garden. It was beautiful to see the children captivated by both the music and the original storybook that Meredith shared with them while she sang. This reinforced the library's mission of lifelong learning." Joanne Friedman, Children's Librarian, Kearny Library. "Monkey Monkey Music is highly professional, interactive, and entertaining. Both the children and parents really enjoyed the program. They danced, they participated, and remained engaged the entire duration of the show.

DiLorenzo, Kris Acting Shakespeare in One Easy Lesson Performing Arts- Theater
Open to teens, too, this is a fun way for even non-actors to act: using the original method of the actors in Shakespeare’s troupe: they had no rehearsals and had only their own lines, not the whole script. The secret: Shakespeare's acting instructions are "coded" into the text, through devices like capital letters, strange spellings, odd punctuation, and even passages that make no sense. All you have to do to act the lines is be able to read them, and follow Kris's very simple instructions. No experience or British accents necessary!
