Dear Children’s Librarian,
If you’re looking for an outstanding way to kick off, conclude or enhance your summer reading program…have I got a show for you!

As a professional magician who presents several hundred high-energy, spellbinding programs of magic, fun and audience participation each year, my NEW FOR 2017 PROGRAM “Build A Better World” @ Your Library” is specifically designed for children and family audiences just like yours.

I received my start in magic over 40 years ago, at the age of 8.
A few magic tricks in a cereal box and then it was off to my local library for more information. I’ve been stuck on books ever since! Since then, I have entertained hundreds of thousands of kids and families throughout the U.S. and Central and South America.

An interesting side-note many of my first magic programs were performed – at my local library with librarian Mrs. Stille, the same librarian who fostered my interest in magic books!
Libraries have become one of my absolute favorite places for performing. You’ll see that come through in every show! Response has been great, and the reviews outstanding!

With libraries as one of my main focuses, it’s always great to hear  “job well done” and “we look forward to having you back!” Most librarians like yourself say the show was among their very best ever. A great many report record attendance, and there is always a ton of magic books and also the books I use in my program checked out after each performance. I am fortunate that libraries that use me once bring me back time and time again.

My show is specifically designed to play well to a library crowd. Your readers will laugh out loud at the hilarious antics that take place when various audience members get involved in the show. Some of the magic actually happens in their hands!
(P.S. You may have noticed the average age of the children in your programs has gotten younger… don’t worry, my show plays to the younger set as well!)

 

They’ll be amazed by my “Talking Board” and be baffled by the “Bubb-a-loo Bubble Gum Extravaganza!” and they’ll talk about “Mr. Music, the Magical Music Machine” long after the show is over.

And for my library audiences, I have created each program with very special feature routines designed to encourage reading and promote your reading program. Kids will learn about the magic of books and that “readers are leaders”. I want the kids to understand what I learned as a child from Mrs.Stille, that books are fabulous treasures AND ARE FUN!


It’s a solid 45-55 minutes of high caliber, baffling magic and non-stop, family-friendly fun, and it’s guaranteed!

 

 

Schedule a performance for your library and I’ll guarantee that you and your readers will be delighted… or your show is FREE!

That’s how confident I am that you will find this program to be one of the absolute best values available to libraries today!

BUT; please know that I also have a “Magic of Reading” Program as well as my Dr. Seuss Themed Show, “Oh, the Magical Places To Go” PLUS the “Funbelievable  Magic Workshop” which are available year round.

They are exceptional programs that will bring young readers and family audiences into your library during school and holiday breaks or during those hot and humid “a/c days” or the “cabin fever” days of winter.
Remember, the shows are guaranteed! If you’re not pleased, you don’t pay!

The only thing you stand to lose is a wonderful opportunity to reward your readers with this outstanding program of unforgettable magic and wholesome family fun.

Experience the laughter…enjoy the value…reserve your date today!

Your magical, reading friend,

Greg Phillips

OTHER GREAT LIBRARY PROGRAMS AVAILABLE YEAR ROUND

magic of readingThe Magic of Reading!

Greg promotes READING and BOOKS in this fast paced 45 minute magic show that inspires children to turn off their TV’s and video games and
turn ON to the THRILL OF READING!

 

The kids will witness how reading inspires imagination as some very popular story books come to life, in this non-stop magical educational performance of fun and laughter.
Books Include, The Secret Garden. That’s Good That’s Bad, Uncle Magic, Charlotte’s Web and more!

The children will be reminded to take responsibility when borrowing books from the library, as it wouldn’t be fair to others if the book is returned damaged or destroyed. Fiction, Non Fiction, biographies with some very subtle moral messages makes this a “can’t go wrong” performance for your next school assembly or library event.
This show stresses that READING IS FUN and should be part of our daily activities and, like everything else in life, takes time and practice to become a good reader.
This performance is GUARANTEED TO PLEASE!

 

Oh, the Magical Places to Go!
Join Greg in this magical tribute to
Dr. Seuss as children travel on a journey around the world. They will learn that reading is fun while they learn geographical information. The program will let children discover the diversity of the planet with a focus on respect and tolerance through the morals and examples presented in many of Dr. Seuss’s’ books. The program features many children’s favorite books that come to life with magic, juggling puppets and music.

The books that will be part of Greg’s Magic program include:
The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, The Lorax, The Sneetches and Other Stories, Horton Hears a Who, Gertrude McFuzz, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, and Happy Birthday to You!


In addition to my popular Magic Programs,
many libraries are also scheduling:

 Magic Workshops

The “Funbelievable Workshops.”
Click the Workshop Link for more detailed Information!
In the Magic Workshop and/or Juggling Workshop, students will learn basic Magic and/or Juggling skills. They will learn some simple “sleight-of-hand,” astonishing mind reading stunts, or some very cool, rarely seen tricks with common items like ropes, rubber bands, cards and money. In Juggling, Basic Cascades, Balancing, and making their own balls and clubs are just some of the things a student will learn. Selection of material is always based on the age and make-up of your specific audience. The one hour program is suited for a class size of 30 kids or less and is a perfect choice for elementary audiences or your teens and “tweens” group. Best of all, all of the special props and illustrated instructions are included in the great low price!
