Andi Lehman

Life with Animals: Connecting Their Stories to Ours

Award-winning actress/director and popular educational speaker Andi Lehman presents the wonder and value of “Life with Animals” through her entertainment company of the same name. Using integrated performing art tools like costumes, props, songs, interactive games, puppetry, and crafts, Andi introduces multiple species of live wild, domestic, or exotic animals, including birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, arachnids, and even aquatic critters. She shows and tells each animal’s story through the eyes of history, geography, literature, or science, demonstrating its purpose and beauty and revealing how it connects to us.

Several programs feature Andi as a literary or historical figure and may include short PowerPoint presentations and recitations or readings from engaging books, including Andi’s own children’s book, Saving Schmiddy (scheduled for release in June 2022.) All presentations include original educational worksheets and fun handouts. Programs tailored to a specific topic, curriculum, or event are available upon request.
