Please help bring "The Dooples in the Land of Doo - The Musical" to children everywhere.  It is my mission to launch The Dooples-- as an enterprise to bring the world of learning to children through rhyme, rhythm and repetition.

I spent my adult life creating characters and stories in order to make a difference in the lives of children.  The Dooples' adventures developed from my experiences in the classroom with my first grade class.  The adventures have evolved from mere images, to stories, music, toys, animation and software in order to help children find the key to life-long learning...

              (March, 2014-MidWinter Madness Festival -        
                Roy Arias Theater - NYC)

The claymantion-"Friendship...We are all the same" is a Public Service Announcement produced with The NYC Board of Education.

The Trilogy:  (Meet the Dooples, The Dooples and the Shapes and The Dooples  Communicate)... is a series of books and videos where the Dooples learn the importance of practicing, making mistakes, collaboration, reading, writing and communication.  (youtube channel:  the dooples1)

After decades of enriching the lives of many children with the Dooples' adventures, the animated television pilot was produced.  It was the official selection of The Big Apple Film Festival and The New Filmmakers Festival this past year. The prototypes of the characters as toys were also created at that time.

March 2014, "The Dooples in the Land of Doo- The Musical", as part of the Mid-Winter Festival in NYC.  Spotlight News 12, NJ and NBC Today Show featured the story of The Dooples.   For the first time, it became apparent that the musical was the best way to launch The Dooples  as a learning franchise.    

This past June, students from PS/MS 206, East Harlem performed an abbreviated vesion of The Dooples in the Land of Doo -The Musical. This will be the beginning of an annual program in order to raise money for the school.

Now, in order to enhance the story and music, and to expand its horizons, as a Showcase, it will be necessary to get  funding.  Once the live musical is launched, the full impact of the project can be experienced.

Therefore, December 14 through December 20, 2015 The Dooples will make their debut at The Cherry Lane Theater, (38 Commerce St. NYC)!  We need help in order to give it a successful launch. 

Please help us get it there...and make a difference in the lives of children everywhere!
