An entertainer of international experience Steve Hennessy has developed Dr. Planet- A Musical Journey Through The Solar System - a combination of musical culture and curriculum-based information on the solar system. As a parent, former school board member and Education Manager at a major performing arts center he is keenly aware of the need to supplement the subjects taught in school with material that is innovative and fun. Music presented in a variety of styles and forms also enhances the discovery of the art itself.
An award winning songwriter (Jumpin' Jive Jupiter) and charismatic entertainer, Steve brings his talent and knowledge to the forefront with an innovative, musical, and interactive program that has everyone singing and learning at the same time. His Dr. Planet composition “Neptune Lullaby" featured on his Solar System Slide CD and on La Bella Stella, a compilation CD from Recess Music, featuring the top 15 children’s artist in the country has garnered international acclaim and the 2012 Parent's Choice Approved Award.
Dr. Planet will have your audience singing and dancing their way through the exploration of the solar system! Dr. Planet's unique delivery of solar system facts is exciting, enjoyable and entertaining.
