The feedback from the schools, principals, teachers and students has been phenomenal. Here's just a taste;

"One of the best school performances I have seen. Our students very much enjoyed the show and appreciated the audience participation especially seeing one of their teachers being included in the performance. I highly recommend The Mat Velvet and Charlie Show."

Steve Newlove, Vice-Principal, Bayside School


"In 33 years of cultural performances this is the first time I have heard the children call for an encore!!!"

Dan Costain, Principal, Queneesh Elementary School, Vancouver Island, B.C.

"Thanks so much for today's performance!!! The students and staff loved it. So enthralling and entertaining! "

Rick Miller, Principal, Mountview Elementary, Williams Lake, B.C.


"Hi there to Mat Velvet and Charlie and your adorable children!

At Bayside Middle School your show was so riveting that the students sat there without moving for the whole time!

This is extremely unusual and I can think that it is due to the fantastic way you entertained and surprised them. Your show was perfect for the students as it demonstrated high skill, humour, surprise elements, their favorite teachers and sincere and genuine answers to all their questions!

I highly recommend it to other schools!!

Thanks so much for coming by. I hope the rest of your trip was wonderful!"

Shirley Elm, Principal of Bayside Middle School


The tour was of over 40 schools in British Columbia in conjunction with ArtStarts.
