What makes Jan’s Clan the most unique and fun puppet act in Chicagoland? Read what some of our fans have to say!




“This past summer, Fountaindale Public Library had ‘Jan’s Clan Puppets’ perform in our two buildings and it didn’t take long for her to have the entire audience singing along and tapping their feet. As families exited the show, we had numerous requests to have them back as soon as possible, which speak volumes about the family friendly performance Jan put forth.”

“Thank you again for such a wonderful puppet show that you performed for our Pre-K to 3rd grader students. I heard nothing but high praises from the teachers and students as well.”

Cultural Arts Chair
Farnsworth PTA



“Not only was the experience fun, but educational too. Of all the Wednesday Happenings provided by the Village of Orland Park Recreation and Parks Department this year, the crowd responded best to yours. You also have been the easiest entertainer to assist by coming fully prepared. I would recommend Jan’s Clan to any park district, recreation and or/ parks department, school, library, or church.

“I wanted to thank you for performing at our Halloween Spooktacular event. I have heard many wonderful things about the puppet show from both staff and members of the community.”

“When Jan’s Clan performs, the audience is mesmerized. They have always been easy to work with and are always timely for set-up as well. I would definitely recommend them for any special event or occasion.”

Superintendent of Recreation

“Jan captivated the audience with her adorable characters and lively music. Children and adults laughed and sang along with each performance. Our older campers especially enjoyed their behind-the-scenes presentation and were inspired to make their own puppets. I would highly recommend Jan’s Clan Puppets to anyone looking for an entertaining performance for all ages.”

Gina Ressner
Arts Supervisor
Park District of Highland Park



“More than entertaining, your shows are very appropriate for our young people and allow them to join in the show. I am also delighted you take the time to discuss how you became a puppeteer and how puppets can be made. The love you have for the work is obvious. The professional manner in which you approach each performance and your relationship with the Park is very much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you again soon!”

Ralph L. Stephens
Program Director
