BIO - SUE PIEROZ

Sue Pieroz is a successful author and performer specialising in material for youth and children and education in Australia. Since 1995, Sue has performed as a Children’s Entertainer and been involved in numerous productions throughout Australia. These productions have been highly successful and she has developed a reputation of innovativeness and excellence.

The success of these productions precipitated the creative evolvement from stage production to the creation of a children’s book. With a positive belief in the marketability of this project based on past successes, Sue is currently working on adapting this book into a television show.

Another adjunct to Sue’s impressive repertoire of skills is seen through her work with youth and the community including the role of tutor. Sue is proud of being a community oriented professional with a belief that everyone is special and unique. This philosophy is encapsulated through all of her creative works and in particular, 'Tappitidoo... New Friends', which has a focus on diversity of culture and individual uniqueness.

What Client's Are Saying....

  • "I would like to express our thanks on behalf of the students and staff of our pre- school and school for the marvellous presentation you performed.

    I felt that the students responded well to what you performed and it must be said that it is the longest time that the children's attention has been held.”

    Lyn Mazey - Principal

    Lakeside Christian College
  • "Just a delight to watch - the most fun was watching the young audience transported into that fantasy place full of wonder and joy that we adults sadly left behind when we had to grow up.

    These very animated forest creatures have comical and interesting personalities that reach out to all young children and engage them in lots of interactive play”

    B. Hume
  • "My two primary school age children saw Corey the Cockatoo show on the Gold Coast and were both captivated by the characters and music.

    They remained engaged with the show and its characters during its entirety and especially remarked on the enjoyment of interacting with the characters during the show...

    A fantastic show and "a must see" for all young at heart! ”

    A. Anderson
  • "Sue has incredible flair when it comes to her creative skills in writing music and producing children's shows, which she has performed for several occasions.

    Sue presents herself in a bright and cheery manner and we found her to be a reliable and conscientious contribution to our marketing activities."

  • “I had the pleasure of watching a performance, which impressed me greatly.

    The presentation contained a number of key elements in performing to young children: it was interesting to them, it activated their imaginations, they could participate, and it involved puppets of Australian wildlife and catchy, original songs.”

    Ian Collis - Principal

    Wamberal Public School
  • "Just a short note to acknowledge the excellent shows you performed for us during the Easter Holidays.

    Customers LOVED the unique interactive style of the show and the variety.

    Your costumes and story line are admirable and we will certainly look forward to seeing you again next year.”
