Piccolo's Trunk

" "Magic & Science & Stuff Magician Mike Rose presents a magic show that is not like other magic shows. Mike's new show, "Magic & Science & Stuff!" is created specifically for libraries and is designed to perfectly complement the 2014 Summer Reading theme "Fizz, Boom, Read!" The show consists of impossible magic tricks, weird mind reading stunts, and off the wall comedy all themed around science and experimentation. 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 5 and up.
