McEntee, Robert Magic Beyond Imagination! Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists
Magic Beyond Imagination! Is a wonderful family show which adults enjoy as much as children. It combines amazing magic, lots of audience participation, age appropriate humor, storytelling with reading promotion, a magical game and typically a breathtaking musical routine with mesmerizing special effects! For slightly larger budgets, the magician can add spectacular illusion(s), such as, floating a child in the air, sawing somebody in half or making them magically appear to introduce the show. Children also go crazy for an incredible animated talking picture! As you know, today’s audiences require lots of imagination stimuli to keep their attention for a length of time. An effective way to do that is to use lots of props, music, participation, comedy, storytelling, AND great magic. Blending all of these elements into a single program requires lots of set up time... Lots of magicians ignore this! They walk in and start with a few juvenile props! To ensure this show captivates the attention of children AND adults, it takes as long to set up & then take down, as it does to perform. Therefore, you get the highest quality family show at a tremendous value, to build your program's reputation!

Drums of Japan, Ryu Shu Taiko Taiko Drums: An Intro to Japanese Culture Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Performances and workshops allow our performers to share the joy of Taiko with their audiences. “KOKORO” (heart and mind): playing with all our heart and mindful of the long history of Taiko we strive to present an authentic Taiko experience. "KI" (energy and spirit): through Taiko our “Ki” is expressed; and this energy and spirit is shared and received by our audience. “BUNKA” (culture): Taiko is used as an educational tool to teach the music, culture and history of Japan to children in schools and in the community; and to imbue a strong appreciation for cultural tradition and the arts. In our presentation-“The Drums of Noto Hanto”- the audience becomes part of the performance enacting the roles of peasants who drum and dance as demons to scare away invading Samurai. We perform both traditional works and contemporary ones; combining Taiko drumming with Japanese Folk Dance for an exciting presentation that will entertain, enthrall and enrich all that experience the power of the Taiko Drums of Japan!

Imagine a magical balloon that knows when and how to touch down in the most exotic places right in the middle of a story, just at the most important moment. This is the invention of Professor Pennywhistle, whose curiosity and enthusiasm about exploring the world takes him - and us - to the most surprising places. It's a celebration of diversity - and more important - the common things that people share all around the globe. We'll visit the arid landscape of Africa, where the animals must remember the name of a tree that will drop its fruit only if they can shout it out loud; the Palace of the Emperor of China, who has lost his best friend - a nightingale - and doesn't know what to do; a little cottage in the woods of France, where an elderly woman learns the secret of a soup made from only a stone. And finally, we'll return to the good old U.S.A. and meet Pecos Bill, America's first cowboy, and help him lasso a wild tornado. We live in a big, wide, wonderful world, and Professor Pennywhistle is more than happy to be our tour guide.
