The Schadler Family

(Ron, Cherie & Joseph)

For the Schadler family, the Bayou Town journey has been a life journey of learning and growing with the Lord, Jesus Christ. In 1990, with a history of experience in the arts, the Lord directed the Schadlers to begin producing educational productions, books, and products for children and families that would be fun, character-building, tools. They have produced programs for groups like The Friends of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality, and the Mississippi Urban Forest Council. They have two published BAYOU TOWN books and a cassette with Pelican Publishing, Co., Gretna, Louisiana.

Their stories and puppet productions function as a mobile classroom using props, activities, music, and humor to help students learn important issues about faith, family, and environmental stewardship. They have presented their programs to many thousands of children and educators throughout the south, including elementary school presentations, Conservation Field Days, public library Summer Reading programs, conferences, teachers' workshops, conventions, and special events.

Currently, the Schadlers are producing educational videos for their educational channel, BAYOU TOWN Productions, LLC at www.YouTube.com. To learn more about programs and products, please read our BAYOU TOWN News or visit our GENERAL STORE.
