Kronzek, Allan The Magician's Art and Scientific Inquiry Performing Arts- Magic,
Science
How do magic tricks fool us? Where does our thinking go astray? If we can be fooled by the illusions of a stage magician, how do we know we aren't being fooled by other illusions as well? Among the core science concepts explored in this eye-opening program--which combines baffling magic with audience brainstorming--are those related to developing skepticism, forming hypothesis, questioning appearances, testing explanations, and distinguishing between a scientific and non-scientific world view. Allan Zola Kronzek is a writer, magician, and longtime teaching artist. He is the author of the NY Times bestseller The Sorcerer's Companion-A Guide to the Magical World of Harry Potter, and the highly-acclaimed A Book of Magic for Young Magicians - The Secrets of Alkazar.

Engel, David WIZARD ACADEMY! Performing Arts- Clowning,
Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Other
Professor Hackensneezes Wizard Academy is an antic day in the life of a substitute professor of Magic. A zany mixture of Jerry Lewis and Harry Potter, perfect for Fall programs. Uncommon and refreshing physical comedy which features eccentric props, antic bubble-play, real magic, double-take inducing puppetry and fantastic musical scoring. My acts are like two shows in one with a sit-down stage show paired with an on-their-feet participatory segment that engages the whole audience no matter the size. In general I stress golden rules in a non-gender specific age appropriate and wholly zany atmosphere. My costumes are theater-grade quality, am insured and have a fantastic sound system. David Engel is a full-time family entertainer with twenty years experience, a clown doctor with the Big Apple Circus' renowned in-hospital Clown Care Program and featured in New York Magazines BEST OF NY: KIDS!
