Latta, Tim ME PLURIBUS UNUM History,
Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
In ME PLURIBUS UNUM, we get a hilarious lecture-demonstration cum stump speech by the wanna-be Queen of the United States of America. In her negative attack campaign, she unwittingly makes the case for democracy as we know it, and shows us how lucky we are! As she argues that an absolute monarchy is so much easier than democracy (no questioning necessary, no thinking involved!) she points up the value of civic participation and involvement in our government. Her ironic criticisms of the American system cover the separation of powers, how laws are passed, taxes, and freedom of speech. At the end of her harangue, she demands a vote to end democracy in America so she can achieve her American Dream: to become queen of the greatest nation on earth. In the end she sees the paradox behind her dream. You can’t be queen of the greatest nation on earth if you take away everything that makes it great. It’s not Me pluribus unum, but E pluribus unum: out of many, one. Felicity Jones

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!
