Boyer, Jeff The Science of Magic Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Science
THE SCIENCE OF MAGIC. Arthur C. Clark once wrote that “sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” and today we live in the age of technology. We are surrounded by magic. In the first half of this show “Boyer the Magnificent” entertains and amazes us with several classic magic illusions. Objects change colors, light bulbs blaze to life with no apparent power source, and spheres levitate before us. Is this magic? “Professor Boyer” says “No!” In the second half of the show he performs these same feats using the tools of modern technology. Explaining laws of physics as he goes, the professor teaches the audience the principles that make these astounding demonstrations possible. Throughout the show volunteers are brought up on stage to participate in an event that amuses, amazes, educates and entertains.

This show is what the children make it. We offer stories from the oral tradition that made it possible for Twain to become the beloved performing artist and author; and add stories that reflect Twain’s gift of improvisation. This show was inspired by a Clemens family tradition. After dinner each night, he would tell his children impromptu stories about objects in the room. They would make suggestions at will that made the stories more to their liking. For this series of shows, a few stories are told. Then the children get to ask Twain any question they like. The answers will be in the form of a story or anecdote.
