"Magic You Will Dig!"

Magician Mike Rose presents a magic show that is not like other magic shows. Mike’s new show, “Magic You Will Dig!” is created specifically for libraries and is designed to perfectly complement the Summer Reading Club theme “Dig Into Reading.” The show consists of impossible magic tricks, weird mind reading stunts, and off the wall comedy all themed around things that occur in the ground (you know, dirt!). And the show features lots of audience participation, too (Many children will become part of the show!). Additionally, throughout the show Mike Rose will be referencing various children’s books and promoting library use in a fun and entertaining manner. Don’t miss it! For kids of ALL ages.
