Thank you for visiting MagicReadingShows.com. If you're looking for a show that entertains, educates, and inspires children and their families in your Vacation Reading Program, you've come to the right place!
Each spring, Bill Packard's Magic Man Entertainment, Inc. creates an original entertaining presentation that enhances the Collaborative Summer Library Program theme for the following summer and encourages the attendees to check out popular book titles.
In 2007, we presented "The Seven Tourist Travel Wonders of the World" show to
public libraries in Georgia. Although Bill had already been performing for children and family audiences full-time for 15 years, this was our first original and customized show designed to enhance a CSLP theme ("Reading Takes You Everywhere"). To make the presentation even more entertaining and educational than a traditional magic show, Bill appeared as a costumed authority figure (a pilot in this case) and used a video projector to display book covers, illustrations, video bites, and funny interactive moments.
The format worked so well, we've used this multi-media technique in all our subsequent library shows. We encourage you to view a demo video or two below to get a feel for the multi-media concept, the variety, the over-the-top production, the fun, and the appropriateness of our shows for a summer library audience or school assembly.
I provide PA system, backdrop, sample copies of all the books, and an enthusiastic attitude, so you can relax and enjoy the show yourself, and be assured that your Vacation Reading Program will be a success!
The summertime fee per show is just $300. We do not charge a mileage fee, but for locations greater than 100 miles from Atlanta, we require additional booking(s) on the same day.
