“She is a perennial favorite of children everywhere.”
–Daily News, New York
â€œLaura Simms is a master whose presence,
humor, voice and stories invite us to explore
and expand our understanding of the world.
She gently takes us to a place of confounding
and mythical crossroads. With charm and a touch
of surprise, Laura brings us to a place of
wisdom and good sense. I am internally grateful!
Audiencesâ€™ response is astonishing. This is
storytelling at its finest, and the way to
unlock meaning and compassion for young people
in the world today.â€
Education Director, Theater Development Fund
â€œLaura Simms is spellbinding!

–Central New York Community Arts Council
â€œI loved her philosophy and
approach. Best of all she brought a message of hope.â€
–Principal, Charlton School District
â€œLaura Simmsâ€™ performance is a must.
Children and adults lined up around the block,
waiting to see one of the best in a field thatâ€™s
falling away in a world dominated by the visual.
There is really nothing like a story told in a way
that piques your imagination and entertains at the
same time. She makes words come alive until the
audience is totally engrossed in the story she is telling.â€
–Edmonton International Childrenâ€™s Theatre Festival
