Birthday Parties and Other Events

Hire me for your next birthday party, school activity, or corporate event!  Send me a message and let's start chatting!


Welcome to Wishful Junk, the only junk shop that is also home to magical wish-granting puppets!  This interactive one-woman show brings kids along to browse an array of unusual objects, and through improvised act outs, make their wishes come true!  Ideal for ages 4 to 10.  Runs 25 - 30 minutes.

Ask me about purchasing made-to-order puppets for all your guests so that kids can use their puppets during the show!

Skirball Puppet Festival 2023


Guests of all ages love puppets!  I've worked events big and small (Skirball Puppet Festival, Great Big Family Play Day, and the Doo Dah parade to name a few) entertaining guests both from the stage and as a walk-around performer bringing delight through one-on-one interactions.  I can either bring your puppet characters to life or provide one of my bombastic creations.


Nothing fills a party with more delight than balloon animals!  I focus on simple balloon designs, meaning I work fast and fun to keep your guests happy.


"We have had the pleasure of working with Sherry for years. She is a consummate professional and brings enthusiasm and joy to everything she does. Sherry is an immensely talented puppeteer, teacher, and performer. She has instructed our children's music teachers in many puppeteer workshops and is always fun and inspiring. Our students and their families are enthralled with her puppeteer skills, bringing our LoveBug mascot to life before their eyes!"

Each class is tailored to the group, whether it's for one or a hundred and one.  Have something in particular you want to work on, either in private sessions or with your group?  Just ask!

"Sherry is a talented, knowledgeable, and passionate teacher who has incredible skill at instilling that same passion in her students. She is caring and tuned into her student's needs and abilities which lets her adjust her lesson plans to better reach every student in her class. 

She creates a supportive and caring environment in her classroom so every student feels safe and is an important part of the ensemble.

Sherry's students leave class smiling, laughing, and excited to go back and learn more."
