Naomi Miller

“Gerald and Pushcart Players were a pleasure to work with. We had two different school-wide Zoom presentations of Tales from Around the World. Gerald adapted the stories for the ages of our audiences and kept students from Pre-K through 5th grade engaged and entertained! We all learned so much from his stories and worldly experiences!”

Colleen Henkin

Literacy Coach/Reading Specialist, Millstone Township Primary & Elementary Schools

Mr. Fierst is an awesome storyteller. One of our older teens who attended the program told me that she really enjoyed it, and she is someone who’s not afraid to say when she doesn’t like something!

I really enjoyed the program, too. Thanks for all of the work that you and your colleagues have done to promote live theatre during a time when it’s almost impossible to do so. What you’re doing is important and really lifts people’s spirits!

Helen Margiotti

Head of Children’s & Young Adult Services, Vineland Public Library, Vineland, NJ

“Once again, the Pushcart Players came through with flying colors!!  We couldn’t have been any more pleased with how everything went. The troupe was awesome, too – they are all very nice folks, every one of them, and so talented! Terrific all around! Looking forward to doing this again next year!”
