On Monday, February 2, 2016, Chadwick School students were treated to a special live performance by ventriloquist Todd Oliver.
Mr. Oliver and his talking dog Irving have performed all over the world and been featured on multiple television programs over the years, including America’s Got Talent, The Today Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Walker Texas Ranger, and half a dozen more.
He spoke to students about how he got his start in show business, the importance of laughing together, and how the secret to success. He encouraged them all to find something they are passionate about and to practice it an hour each day until they mastered the skill.
The act, which featured several dummies as well as dogs and birds, was a big hit with all students from the preschool to the high school.
