"Just a note to say that you are two of the most creative, imaginative, and talented puppeteers! Our school thoroughly enjoyed this year's production of "Beauty and the Beast" by Carranza Puppets. Not only did we enjoy this year's program, we also enjoyed your past shows of "Cinderella" and "Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp." Your talents have been an inspiration to our children. They were deeply in awe of your shows. Keep up the great work!"
