Christine B is one of Kaleidoscope’s longest-tenured crew members and best-reviewed entertainers!

Christine went to Worcester State University and graduated with a BA in Visual and Performing Arts, and has been performing since elementary school–first in church in school choirs, and by fourth grade in theatre productions. By the time she entered WSU, she was not only in the school’s performing arts major but in their a cappella choir, the chorale, and went with the group on a brief European tour.
On top of all of this, Christine has been working with kids since middle school–first as a volunteer in her church’s nursery, and eventually as a baby sitter, Montessori educator, and YMCA arts and crafts instructor.
Currently Christine makes her full-time living as an artist between Kaleidoscope, as a part-time nanny, and a regional puppeteer.
Christine currently works as a variety of cartoon characters (including princesses and super heroes), circus performer (stilts, juggling, and more!), tarot reader, and of course a visual artist (balloon twisting, face painting, paint night instructor, and henna artist just to name a few).

Unique entertainment is our specialty–but what do you do when your kids get too old for traditional face painting and balloon twisting?
