(A 1/3 Deposit may be required)


​A Favor:

If Mark is speaking for your school, and more than 150 miles from home, he and Tami more than likely will be spending the night in the vicinity the evening before. And always staying over the night of, if he's presenting a Family Reading Night for you. If you should have an arrangement with an area hotel, please let us know as this helps with travel costs which you know are always a great expense. 


(For instance: If one of your parents operates a hotel or a hotel partners with the school by donating the night or significantly discounting it, please do let us know.) Suitable hotel types are Comfort Inn, Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Fairfield Inn, Country Inn and Suites by Carlson, Bed and Breakfast Inns or the independent equivalents. (The rule of thumb if you like it, find it safe and would stay there yourself, then Mark and Tami probably would as well.)

Please understand, this is not a requirement, however if you have this option available, Mark is delighted to take you up on it. Thanks so much!



    All of PA - $895.00

Mark loves traveling your lovely state to schools in the Lehigh Valley and throughout the Poconos, over to the Harrisburg/Dauphin Co. area and down to York, then over to the greater Pittsburgh area and up to "The Wilds" of PA, then further up to Tioga and finally over to Reynolds Elem. in Greenville on the PA/OH stateline.

All the way sharing books, visiting friends, family and enjoying the great food and hospitality of the "Keystone" state.  


  We are happy to customize Mark's appearance based on your needs.


Drawing from the experience of thousands of performances, may we suggest that while we can accommodate any size group as your space allows, we have found that the perfect audience size for this program is up to 300 children per performance.


If you have a larger student body, we suggest dividing them into smaller groups, as once Mark is on site, you receive a significant discount on additional programs.

This ensures the best and most intimate theater experience for your children.

By the way, many schools have Mark stay for a full day including daytime assemblies and the evening A Very Magical Family Reading Night presentation.
