Sandi Sylver

Make no mistake about it: Sandi Sylver does not present “puppet shows”. She is a gifted Ventriloquist who loves encouraging adults as well as children to read, write, and reinvent themselves along the way!

An Illinois Arts Council Touring Roster Artist, Sandi Sylver is committed to entertaining and educating, and she performs nationally at schools, libraries, museums, festivals, private parties, and everywhere else that people can appreciate a truly unique talent.

Having taught herself the art of Ventriloquism from a library book (she practiced, practiced and practiced some more!), Sandi and
“The Girls”, her soft-faced puppet family, present clever, interactive programs that, while “very pro-reading and character counts,” are, in her own words, “definitely wack-o! Except for the ventriloquism, I never practice in front of a mirror; I don’t want to know what I look like in performance, because I don’t want to be concerned with anything but the content of the material. I don’t want to worry about looking ridiculous!”

With programs for families and adults as well as children,
Storyteller-Ventriloquist -Songstress Sandi Sylver confesses that she is “having the time of my life” and can’t imagine doing anything else!
