The Spooky Goofy Magic Show is a 50 minute program that not only will help your students see the importance of reading books to expand their minds but it will teach them how they can have fun this Halloween and still be safe. This program is themed around Halloween but not scary. I use several books as the premise for some of the magic tricks. It is perfect for all ages.
This show is filled with a lot of audience participation, comedy, music, stories and lots of magic.
Come with us as we explore an old haunted castle to try to find the treasure. The kids and families will giggle and laugh as they meet Mr. Bones who keeps falling apart, he looses his head but then it reappears. Our friend Jack the Great Pumpkin will make an appearance and produce a big surprise. In one of the rooms of the castle the audience will see a table float in the air and in another room a treasure box appears out of an empty box.
The Winter Wonder Reading Show's theme celebrates the winter months. This is more than an entertaining show; it is highly educational, leaning toward celebrating and encouraging reading in your student’s lives.
This show features our Frosty The Snowman puppet that appears out of an empty box. The kids will also see a snowball float in the air and then it disappears. The show includes lots of music, stories and illusions specially designed for the students. There are many colorful and visual routines which use audience participation and will keep everyone personally involved for 50 minutes.
This show is booked from November – March.

The Magic of Character: Being a Successful Student
This program has been developed to help the student know what it takes to become a successful student.
It’s a universally recognized fact that children love programs that have audience participation, comedy and magic. In this program, these qualities are used as powerful teaching tools without ever losing focus on the program’s message.
We will combine the message and entertainment to accomplish three main messages throughout the program:
First, the kids will learn that it is very important to feel strong and confident on the inside so that they can Believe in Themselves to get their goals accomplished.
Second, the kids will learn the importance of Setting Goals in their lives and with their school work.
Third, they will learn the importance of Persistence and never giving up!
We had Earl Long present his Character program to over 300 middle school students. He talked about setting goals, achieving your goals, persistence and having good character. The magic tricks help keep the kids engaged. He had students and teachers participate on stage. It was fantastic and we would definitely have him back again.
