Program description: Introduce young readers to “The Magic of Dreaming Big,” a new magic show inspired by the 2012 summer library reading program theme, “Dream Big – READ!” Appearing as a magical dream-weaver, Ron conjures up illusions using his “Giant Book of Big Dreams (and Little Nightmares).” Children help perform tricks that encourage them to stretch their imaginations and reach for the stars. They even have a chance to picture themselves in a variety of fields, including being a secret agent, movie star, Olympic athlete, and president of the United States. A Syracuse University graduate and former teacher, Ron performs educational magic shows for libraries and schools throughout the Northeast. Each year, he presents a show highlighting the summer reading program theme. Shows include the Magic of Being Green, Wide World of Magic, Tune In To Magical Idol, Uncle Sam's Magic of America, Wandering Wizard Show, Capt. HurriCain’s Seaside Magic Show, Tex the Cowboy Magician's Wild West Show, and The Case of the Missing Bunny.
Space/special requirements: Ron brings his own sound system and performance table. He can perform anywhere, as long as there is room for his audience to sit in front of him. He usually needs access to an electrical outlet and may ask to borrow a small table to place extra tricks on.
