10 Tips For Choosing the BEST Summer Camp Shows

I have been doing summer camp shows for over 20 years. In that time, I’ve done things wrong a few things, and I’ve done things right a lot of times. Basically, I learned what to do and what not to do. I’m going to give you some tips for choosing the right kind of entertainment…

Final Full Time Year

This is it my friends. 2019 is a year of change, and that means, ole Dean Alan is relocating. I will be moving to Nashville TN in September of this year. That is good new for me, not so good for many of you. BUT there is good news. I am planning on returning to…

Changes in 2019

This has already been a tough year. As executor of my Mom’s estate, I’ve been gone for 4 weeks so far this year. Thankfully, I have GREAT clients who are booking me despite me not being physically in the state of Virginia. I will be there for the shows! Right now I’m booking things from…

WONDERLAND Taking Over For Frosty

There is a new show on the horizon, it’s called WONDERLAND. This will replace A Very Frosty Celebration and A Very FROZEN Celebration. Much of the material from those two shows will be part of WONDERLAND. And there will be more things added. It’s going to be wonder-ful! WONDERLAND begins Jan 2019, but booking starts…

Booking Fall & Winter EARLY

This year it looks like I’m forced to book Fall and Winter much earlier than normal. As I type this, November is almost completely booked, which is why it won’t be included on the postcard. October is open except for Friday afternoons which are all taken. December is open except for all Friday afternoons, which…

Selling Out Dates!!!

This has been an amazing year. I sold out all my available dates in March. I totally sold out the Week of the Young Child. I sold out the entire week of Read Across America. I am now 18 shows from selling out totally for Summer 2018.  It’s exciting and I’m thrilled and grateful. Thank…

Week of the Young Child Update 2018

Week of the Young Child Update: Right now, only two spots remain, both 9:30am spots for the Sterling VA area April 19 and 20. Everything else is gone. The show I’ll be offering is The Once Upon A Time Magic Show. This is a reconfigured version of The FairyTale Magic Show. This new program has…

Week of the Young Child and More

Can you believe it’s almost March? I’m DEEP into Dr. Seuss shows right now, but it will be summer before you know it. Before we get there though, we have to go through Week of the Young Child. This is a very popular week among my clients, and I already have some spots taken. But…

Snowmen and Cat In the Hat

As I finish up my last few shows in 2017, I’m already gearing up for a busy 2018. Right out of the gate is A Very FROZEN Celebration, which only has a few available dates left. While doing those shows, I’ll put the finishing touches on the brand new Dr. Seuss themed show called The…

Farewell Tour Or No Farewell Tour

Earlier in 2017, I mentioned that I’d be beginning my Farewell Tour this year. Well, as you might imagine, plans had to be altered slightly. Not everything worked out this year the way I had predicted it would. So, rather than finishing up my Farewell Tour now, I’ve really hardly begun, lol. I’ll continue doing…
