Support for Families of Children with Disabilities

Muriel Johnson

Muriel Johnson grew up in an environment where language was celebrated. As a child Muriel would sit in awe as her mother would read, tell stories, sing songs and recite nursery rhymes. By the age of five she had acquired an extraordinary vocabulary, soaring imagination and gift of expression. It was only natural that when Muriel became a mother and later a teacher that she was compelled to share the same way her mother had shared with her. She has performed at pre-k and elementary schools, churches, museums, colleges, festivals and countless other venues from rural communities on the Eastern Shores of Maryland to the townships of Cape Town South Africa.

Neil Marshall
Neil Marshall

Neil Marshall was bitten by a magic bug as a kid and has been fascinated with magic for over 40 years.  He used to be a member of one of the world's most prestigious magic clubs where celebrated magicians gathered at monthly meetings and top-quality magic workshops by world-class magicians. Their philosophy for the emphasis of magic originality inspired him to develop his magic act signatures  His magic passions include visual comedy, manipulation, parlor, mentalism, close-up, and street for adults and children. His magic acts have been shown on local TV and at distinctive venues such as festivals, churches, parties, conferences, schools, star evenings, and alma mater in North America.

Five Bay Area musicians and educators who all have lots of experience with children, alongside their musical careers, decided to pool their talents and our puppets and created Octopretzel—an interactive, engaging, and super-fun experience for kids (and their parents too)! Their music, comprised of original songs as well as tried and true traditional favorites, is whimsical and fun, and has an underlying sensitivity for nature, feelings and story. Octopretzel creates music that is truly enjoyable for families…not just kids. For more, info see
