Tony (a.k.a. The Bug Whisperer™) Gustin is a dynamic theatrical educator and is in complete control from the get go. His decade of experience working with students is immediately apparent. He leads his audience like the pied piper into jokes, stories and horrifying pranks. Tony’s masterfully channeled playful enthusiasm and passion is infectious and the talk just escalates to a palatable excitement in the children. Tony fills the imagination of his audience with humorous accounts of the lives of his animals and his own follies as an entomologist and traveling educator. The show never loses momentum even during serious instruction. When he is finished Tony then turns the reins over to the students who become wide-eyed screaming maniacs as they rush up to handle the animals themselves. Call 815-335-2915.
