LuLu et le Matou (LuLu and the TomCat): "creative, energetic, enthusiastic, very child friendly, with a highly interactive stage show, a musical extravaganza of sing-alongs, storytelling, puppetry and participation. A wonderful atmosphere of fun and laughter, with a colourful catalogue of tunes... a fresh and fun approach to ‘edu-tainment.' "

They bring stories to life and get everyone involved in their French performances. With multiple instruments, puppets, and lots of audience participation, children and adults will love their fresh approach to speaking French.

What other festivals, libraries, teachers, and media have said about LuLu et le Matou (LuLu and the TomCat):

Someone let the cats out of the bag again, but kids are definitely thrilled that these two felines just couldn't stay a secret. With their fresh and highly interactive family-friendly performances, LuLu and the TomCat present a musical extravaganza of sing-alongs and storytelling, puppetry and participation that gets audiences of all ages purring with delight... and learning a thing or two along the way. With their colourful catalogue of tunes and highly interactive stage show, LuLu and the TomCat will have children of all ages perking up their ears and singing along... the Roland, Manitoba-based duo has been lauded for its fresh and fun approach to family entertainment... (LuLu and the TomCat) leave families of all ages purring in pleasure. Winnipeg Folk Festival.

"Winners of a Prairie Music Award and Parents' Choice Award, LuLu and the TomCat are two "cats" not to be missed live. Dance, sing and smile at their show where fun is a guarantee."
Winnipeg International Children's Festival.

" ... artistes talentueux... un spectacle perfectionné et amusant.
Gisèle Girouard, Enseignante, École Somerset.
" Just back from the World Expo in Japan... they are one of Canada's top children's acts."
Gail Aubin, The Valley Leader.

"Les enfants vous adorent! Ils ont certainement un attrait particulier à votre groupe. Votre spectacle a été très bien reçu... Michel Durand, Coordonnateur de la programmation / Réal Durand, Adjoint à la programmation
Festival du Voyageur

" Les jeunes ont bien aimé le spectacle. Le choix de chansons était varié et très approprié... le spectacle était dynamique, drôle et... montré beaucoup de talent." Gordon Campbell, Directeur, École St. Avila.

It was a privilege to work with you here during your too short visit. Your professionalism and endearing personalities along with your talent and Canadian/Japanese spirit are highly admirable. Rene LeBlanc, OYE!Canada/Indica-Records, Artistic and Technical Director, Canada Pavilion, EXPO2005, Japan

"Bonjour! It was a great show! Merci."
Carlos Silva, Principal, École Ste-Marguerite Bourgeoys, Kenora, ON

Their wonderful mix of singing, instruments, puppets, audience participation and books were very fitting to what we try to promote here... all ages really seemed to enjoy the performance and we would recommend them highly... Crystal Alcock, Children's Department, Kenora Public Library, Ontario.

"...le divertissement merveilleux pour des enfants. Ils étaient très professionnels et tellement amusant pour chacun! Audrey Bessette, Comité culturel de Somerset, Directrice du Centre Gabrielle Roy.

Students from Nursery to grade 6 were thrilled by the fast-paced and dynamic show. Weaving together literacy and feline themes they captivated the children's attention through interesting costumes, puppetry and other props. They also involved the children throughout the show, making them a part of the performance. The quality of the music and the songs presented was superb. I would wholeheartedly recommend LuLu and the TomCat as children's performers and I can guarantee any accompanying adults will have to be careful - they might enjoy the show as much as the kids! Liz Kornelsen, Grade 1/2 Teacher, Pinkham School.

From the moment that arrived till the moment they left, you knew you were in for a professional show, but more importantly, these folks obviously love their work and the children! ...Our recommendation would be: Don't miss out on the opportunity to have these folks come and visit you!
Dianne Green, Assistant Community Librarian, Peachland, BC.,

Both students and staff were completely immersed in the highly entertaining song and dance routines. Students were completely mesmerized by the wide variety of musical genre and totally involved in the action packed participatory opportunities that the LuLu and the TomCat performances provided... outstanding children entertainers. I would highly recommend LuLu and the TomCat to any school/group looking for top-notch children's entertainment. Clyde Orr, Principal, OLV School, Kenora, Ontario.

...great things for kids and families." Susan Rykiss, Winnipeg Parent Magazine
LuLu and the TomCat provided the perfect blend of musical talent, storytelling and theatre... interaction with the audience, both young and old, provided a wonderful atmosphere of fun and laughter. Grant Miyai, Music Therapist, St. Amant Centre

Your performance was so enthusiastic, very child friendly and interactive... professional, colourful and very engaging. Frances M. Balodis, International Director and Creator of Music for Young Children.
