Perry, James Explorer Magic Performing Arts- Magic
Are you looking for a fun program for your library? Magic is always popular, but how about magic with a little something more. We have just the thing! We take one-part humor, one-part audience participation, and one-part magic to create laughs, wonders and illusions customized for your patrons! The laughs are built into the magic. For example, the magic appears to go wrong, and Jim finds himself entangled in the microphone stand, but as he works through the problem to a fantastic magic result. Volunteers are used throughout the show. We never embarrass them; instead, each one is sent back to their seat a hero. Our show uses ordinary objects--like playing cards, eggs, rope, balloons and more--from around the home to create extraordinary illusions. Things vanish and appear. The laws of physics are rewritten. We infuse the show with humor that draws on Jim's years of experience as a comic magician inspired by physical (clown-like) humor. After the finale, we provide magic and/or juggling tutorials so the fun can continue after the show is over.

Bromka, Sondra & John 'The Boy Who Went to Visit the North Wind' Participatory Storytelling + 'Who Has Heard the Wind' Children's Concert History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Sondra and John Bromka bring audiences on a wind-swept journey to 'long ago and far away' with the telling of this fine traditional tale. Look forward to an energetic tandem storytelling performance that is underscored with live music on Celtic harp, enriched with historic authenticity, and alive with abundant participation that is well suited to audiences of all ages. A tale of wonder, magic, and heroism, the story unfolds when a poor boy's meal is unwittingly blown away, taken to the four corners of the earth by the all-powerful North Wind, and cannot be returned. In exchange, a magic tablecloth, magic donkey, and magic stick are three marvelous gifts offered by the Wind. But in the end, the most important gift of all is surely the North Wind's sage advice: 'All you have to do is keep your eyes & ears open.' As in the best of traditional folktales, there is the timeless appeal of a thought provoking theme. Here, justice & fairness are of universal concern to young children. And they will enjoy their favorite storytelling elements: patterns and repetition, personification, and especially, the wondrous and curious ways of 'long ago & far away.'
