Jocelyn's ABC: Alphabet Broadway Cabaret

This one-of-a-kind show features a song for every letter of the alphabet! With the help of some simple

Jocelyn is the Artistic Director of The Fairy Tale Players, a group dedicated to providing educational, interactive and inspiring live theater for young children. Classic tales are updated to encourage social awareness and self-expression, and to introduce audiences to the opportunities in dramatic play.

She has taught at theater summer camps for various performing companies, directing fully produced musicals and leading acting workshops.

Jocelyn also builds her own hand and rod puppets and teaches lessons in puppetry. Her resume includes work as a Mad Scientist, touring New Hampshire and Massachusetts leading classes, performances and camps that teach science to children.
