Performing Arts- Literary Artists,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
John Carlson is an Educational Entertainment Specialist. John first learned magic at the age of 10 by reading a book from his local library where he grew up in Brooklyn, NY. The magic bug bit him hard and he decided to start his own magic club and would hold monthly meetings at that same library. To show his appreciation John and his magic club members would put on a show every month for the library. He continues today performing his educationally significant programs through out the country. Our programs promise to be engaging and entertaining using magic, ventriloquism, and audience interaction while also maintaining the highest standards of educational significance. Most importantly our programs are structured, written, and delivered to stimulate and motivate the audience members to continue the learning process through self-directed learning. Every program motivates kids to read and learn!
