Famous Sharron & Samantha Hughes are Shazzam Kids!
Famous Sharron is very famous for nothing at all, and Samantha Hughes is an acclaimed writer, illustrator and storyteller.
They are an award winning duo and they create, make and illustrate their way into and out of some sticky icky situations with live shows, online entertainment and workshops for kids.
All Shazzam Kids shows use live illustrating and sound sampling from the children in the audience. They create characters and narrative to captivate the kids, with plenty asides for the parents to enjoy too. Shazzam can also customise packages to suit your booking.
With over 33 years experience working with kids events (between them) your performers are experienced, reliable and appropriate for all family events. Proof of Working With Children’s Checks and Public Liability are also available on request.
