What our clients are saying about The Jitterbugs Childrens Live Shows
Central Coast Carols
The Jitterbugs performed at Star 104.5’s Central Coast Carols in 2019, a fundraiser for the Cancer Council NSW as the kid’s act. From the get go, they were a pleasure to deal with and were true professionals throughout the whole process! Their costumes and characters brought so much life to the stage and the Christmas Spectacular show was the perfect fit for our event. Overall it was a fantastic experience for both myself behind the scenes and our audience on the night!

The Jitterbugs are fantastic! Apart from wowing the kids and bringing in a huge audience year after year, they work hard and are easy and lovely to deal with. Our events would not be as successful if we didn’t have performers like them. We would have them back in a heartbeat!

We were very lucky to secure The Jitterbugs for our annual community event, Australia Day Celebrations Carss Bush Park 2011. Their communication throughout the process was fantastic. They were also able to provide all the professional documentation we required as a pre-requiste to engaging their services without fuss. On the actual day, they followed all of our instructions and gave our young audience a compelling and exciting performance. The Jitterbugs were fresh, fun and informative. Thank you, Jitterbugs, for making Australia Day 2011 at Carss Bush Park a great success. We look forward to working with you again. All the best!!

Your professionalism, the Jitterbugs friendliness, and great organization skills made our family day a very memorable one. Despite last minute changes and add on tasks, you did it with a smile and delivered a spectacular show, not to mention the vibrant costumes with the lively Jitterbugs bursting into songs which mesmerized both the kids and adults too. Highly recommend for corporate family days and entertainment for kids.

Hi Ellen, Thanks again for coming along and entertaining the kids at the Royal Motor Yacht Clubs Annual Kids Christmas Party Newport. Although I could not be there on the day the reports from our members was that it was a fantastic morning of entertainment, singing and dance. I hear that the kids loved the spider the best and were also extremely excited to see the crocodile slither down the stairwell… Both the parents and children were most entertained and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

ST IVES SHOPPING VILLAGE
During the recent April NSW School Holidays The Jitterbugs performed two high energy shows over 3 days at St Ives Shopping Village. Their colourful characters and energetic young performers kept the crowds enthralled and delighted.
We had strong attendance at all shows and this translated into full capacity participants in other activities offered in the centre before and after the shows.
We believe that it was the attraction of The Jitterbugs that brought the crowds into the centre. Customers from outside of our traditional trading zone came "Just for The Jitterbugs".
Ellen and her crew were highly professional adopting their performance to suit the environment and the audience. Ellen made sure that two distinct shows were performed each day to encourage the audience to stay until the next show. This tactic worked very well with strong attendances of over 100 at each show. More importantly the residual impact at our retailers (especially food and beverages) was noticed with increased activity in the adjacent food court between shows. St Ives Shopping Village will definitely be booking The Jitterbugs again for next year's program of holiday entertainment.

OZ MANAGEMENT ENTERTAINMENT
As an entertainment and event management company, we are often asked about children's entertainment, and we never go past recommending The Jitterbugs to our clients because we know that the feedback will be nothing short of overwhelming praise. What separates them from all other shows is the professionalism they display not only on stage, but also in the way Ellen runs the business. I have seen many Jitterbug performances, and always walk away astonished as to how appealing the entire concept is to each and every child in the audience. Whatever the age, they hang on every word, and are always on their feet from the very beginning to the end, singing and dancing. From the concept, the characters, the costumes, the music, to the choreography……this is the perfect children’s entertainment.
RADIO STATION 2WS
We broadcast the Classic Hits 2WS breakfast show once a month from a different school around Sydney… we call it Back To School Friday and I must say that “The Jitterbugs” have been a great additive to all our shows. Greg Pace presenter/producer from 2WS says “The children absolutely LOVE them and when all the characters come out to do their thing, it’s really hard to contain them…talk about excited!!!””
I think that it’s great that "The Jitterbugs" are out there with this energetic colourful show that’s really hard to ignore… sooner or later you feel the URGE to get up with all the kids and dance around. Someone once said “Work like you don’t need the Money and Dance like there’s no one Watching… and it’s True…” “The Jitterbugs” are always Fun, Energetic & Entertaining, a hardworking outfit that everyone loves… and the ones that are unaware of them, well…they’re missing out!
PARRAMATTA CITY COUNCIL
On behalf of Parramatta City Council, I would like to extend our gratitude for your great work at the Australia Day Celebrations. “The Jitterbugs” delivered a fantastic show, enjoyed by children and adults alike. The choreography, costumes and repertoire were truly first class. Australia Day in Parramatta attracted record crowds this year- estimated at 180,000 throughout the day-and it is council’s belief that it was the standard of entertainment that brought the people to to park in droves. The program included James Morrison, Rhonda Burchmore, Spice Power Tribute Show, Fireworks and it was great to have “The Jitterbugs” as part of that outstanding program.
HORNSBY RSL CLUB
“The Jitterbugs” features uniquely bug characters on stage throughout the show with lots of audience participation and giveaways. Entertainment for the kids during school holidays has become “BIG” business which in the past has been dominated mostly by the guys - namely “The Wiggles” and “The Hooley Dooleys” and have proven very popular with the kids. But, Watch out guys! "The Jitterbugs" are on your trail!
“The Jitterbugs” presentation is “bright and tight”, reflecting long hours of rehearsal but at the same time they never appeared to lose touch with their audience, be it the young on whom their act is focused or the older folk who were obviously entertained as well. Someone in my hearing said, “Look out the Wiggles! I think they may be right. The Jitterbugs is a class kids act that stretches further than most! I was most impressed.
"F. John MacKenzie,
The Jitterbugs performed at Darling Harbour on Australia Day 2000 to a capacity crowd of all ages, who were totally entertained and thrilled by their performance. In a time where there is an abundance of very ordinary, patronising and mostly derivative children’s entertainment, I was delightfully surprised by the very original, highly energetic and very entertaining performance. Their show is a very polished show performed by eight extremely dedicated performers and their costumed friends who have an undeniable talent for entertaining children. We will be having them back very soon!
Events Co-ordinator, Performance"
It gives me great pleasure to provide the following on behalf of ‘The Jitterbugs’. ‘The Jitterbugs’ have performed their professional high energy children’s show on numerous occasions at Pittwater RSL Club since early 2002, entertaining children and adults alike. The cast perform this talented, interactive show with enthusiasm and passion. The costumes, sets and props are extensive and creative which add immensely to the story. ‘The Jitterbugs’ performance is always full of fun and excitement and is defiantly one of the best children’s shows around. I can highly recommend ‘The Jitterbugs’ to any prospective organization interested in engaging their services and if necessary would be pleased to offer any further information on their behalf.

WINSTON HILLS MALL
The Jitterbugs brought in the crowds with their “Get Up & Go” show At Winston Hills Mall during January, 2006.
Their high energy show attracted huge audiences and their effervescent personalities coupled with great performances kept the crowds completely entertained. Their professionalism shined through as seasoned artists.
Great voices, cute costumes, catchy music, infectious energy and great fun. You couldn’t do better for a holiday show that actually entertains.
Great cast and good management!

BOOROWA IRISH WOOLFEST
I would just like to thank the Jitterbugs for a wonderful performance at the Irish Woolfest in October 2008. It was the feature event of the show and as such had to achieve a very high performance standard. The Jitterbugs was a show that entranced little children, bigger siblings, parents and grandparents with their colour and energy. The show also encouraged the children to participate which they did enthusiastically. The Irish Woolfest is a major regional event that attracts up to 15000 visitors from all over the country and many from Canberra and we are proud of the fact that we engage very professional performers for the event to entertain the family market. I would like to thank you for coming to Boorowa and putting on a very polished performance. I believe this group has the ability to extend its market to a variety of mediums. I wish you luck in your future endeavours.
