Children and Families

With toe tapping, rhythm and rhyme, Alison Marae’s songs come to life, telling stories inspired by nature, make believe and far away lands. She creates fun, interactive music shows designed to delight, entertain and engage young audiences and the young at heart.

She has co-written two original, multi-disciplined musicals for families: The Fairy and the Dragon and Rhythm Red Riding Hood. Both co-written and performed with her partner in crime, Wil Forbis.

Alison is approved to perform in libraries with the City of San Diego and the County of San Diego. Program approved for Multnomah County in Portland OR, Summer 2017. Fully Insured, background checked.
