She shares the stage with 19 energetic children in roles that include "Little Miss Muffet" as a flapper, "Humpty Dumpty" as a swing dancer, and Elvis crooning the "Little Girl Blues." Among the nursery rhymes presented with an international flair are "Mary Had a Little Lamb" direct from the Far East, "There Was An Old Woman" performed as a traditional Israeli dance, "Little Bo Peep" and "Simple Simon" as characters in a Louis XIV-era music box, "Jack Be Nimble" flamenco-style, "Little Jack Horner" doing the tarantella, "Tom The Piper's Son" playing the Scottish bagpipes, Russian boatmen dancing to "Hi Diddle Diddle," and "Jack Sprat" performing an Austrian waltz.
