After years of doing stand-up and parody karaoke singing as part of his academic presentations, Barry Lane has put together a genuine interactive, improvisational, night club act for teachers. You will sing, you will dance and you will learn to laugh at yourself and the crazy world around you. You may also begin to realize once again, that you have the most important job in the world.

“Barry Lane’s Literacy Cabaret is just what “teacher souls” need. Barry provided us with laughter, food for thought, zaniness, and a great opportunity to be just plain silly. When you see every person in the audience on their feet and joining in, it’s a sure sign that something is working!”

~Sue Biggam, Associate Director, VT Reads Institute, University of Vermont

“Barry Lane – Entertainer! Performer! Lead singer! Dancer! – realistically portrays America’s classrooms using humor and music. (He) involves the audience in a rowdy, enjoyable evening of clean, night club entertainment. Hear Barry like you have never heard Barry before!!! Sing, dance, and LAUGH! A fantastic evening!”

~Lucinda Mitchell, 6th grade teacher, North Branch Michigan

“Your Literacy Cabaret provided the perfect musical celebration as we ended our two day event. Since the conference theme was “Tune In to Reading” it was a perfect match. Your selections made us think, giggle, and appreciate our wonderful teaching profession even as we work through good times and bad. Making connections with music truly provides memories that last a lifetime.

~Wendy Hammrich, President, Iowa Reading Council
