Wendy Whitten with Flumpa the Frog / Flumpa and Friends LIVE!
Combine a highly energetic, multi-talented, multi-award winning, singer/songwriter/dancer with a colorful blue-eyed, red footed tree frog and you have family entertainment that will rock your event! In one 45-60 minute performance, featuring at least 12 interactive songs of various upbeat styles, Wendy and Flumpa will take their audience "swamp stomping," swinging with the planets, flying through the stars, and hopping like frogs. Wendy uses her dynamic presence and "clear as a mountain stream voice" (Disney's Family Fun Magazine) to captivate and mesmerize her audience. So, when she tells them that it is time to hop like frogs, they willingly play along.

This physically active show is based on Whitten's music series, Flumpa's World, which explores science topics from frog life cycles to the colors of the light spectrum to the names and order of the planets. Flumpa, as a life sized puppet character, helps children visualize the movements and entices everyone to want to join in on the fun. And they do! Imagine hundreds of children and adults spinning like rotating and revolving planets to the techno-rock sounds of Earth in Motion or hopping in the four directions to Flumpa Hop. Its madness and mayhem as everyone becomes scary aliens, then all pop and wiggle around like silly aliens in Is Anyone Out There? As recently quoted in a Billboard Magazine feature: “Flumpa & Friends LIVE! will open up the worlds of science through music, storytelling and creative movement in a high energy, fast paced performance.”
Using her background as a certified aerobics instructor and a classical dancer, Wendy makes sure everyone has a great time while getting an exercise workout that leaves kids and grownups energized. And, as a former working scientist, you can be certain that all the information is as accurate as it is fascinating. A graduate of the University of Maryland in Agriculture/Life Sciences, Wendy has worked as a food flavor chemist, creating unique flavors of ice creams and yogurts. She also toured internationally both as part of a classical ballet company from the age 12 to 16, and vocally with the national collegiate choir, performing to heads of states and dignitaries the world over.
Wendy first started telling stories and singing songs about Flumpa to her younger brother when she was seven. Therefore, it was only natural that when she began to visualize bringing science to children in a fun entertaining way, Flumpa would be involved. Garnering 15 national awards (and still counting) with only 3 releases, Wendy has surely made children’s entertainment history. As an author of the highly acclaimed illustrated children’s book, The Adventures of Flumpa and Friends, with the accompanying story-songs and narration, and a songwriter and performer of the Flumpa’s World series, Wendy has won 2 Parent’s Choice, 2 National Parenting Center, 2 Doctor Toy Top 100, 2 Doctor Toy Top Ten, 2 Parent Council, 2 Parent’s Guide for Children’s Media, a Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence (Hollywood, CA) and a Premier Print Award for Juvenile Books. With these accomplishments, and many more to come, Wendy has proven that she knows what children and adults like and want to hear.
Wendy and Flumpa have been spotlighted in Sesame Street Parent, Learning Magazine, Family Fun, Billboard and numerous daily papers including the Washington Post, LA Daily, LA Times and trade magazines. And Wendy and Flumpa are natural magnets for TV cameras – so they are sure to attract extra coverage and publicity for your event, as they have in events past.
Appearing as Flumpa and Friends LIVE, Wendy and Flumpa have been performing for over 5 years and will have appeared in over 250 venues in 2000 alone. And the diversity of events is astounding!
