"There are only a handful of shows that stand out from the rest. Doug's programs are on the top of that list. His great writing, audience involvement and energy he has on stage keep him coming to our school year after year." --- Lee Harrison, Isbister Elementary, Plymouth, MI
Twelve different programs each utilizing magic and large scale illusions to teach. Students and teachers will forget that they are learning because these shows are so much fun. Audience involement is paramount in these shows with kids always being invited on stage to help drive the lessons home. There's crazy comedy, amazing demonstrations, role-playing and of course magic used as a visual aid but never any magic wands or typical hocus-pocus silliness that you'll see in a run-of-the-mill magic show. You'll be blown away by the sets and costumes with no expense ever spared to bring your students and teachers the best assembly shows they will ever see.
The 3 character shows are perfect add-ons to any PBIS, Leadership or Dignity education that you're already doing in your school. "Diversity Circus" has an option of adding the Diversity Circus Book and DVD that will earn your school cash back after each show. Plus the bully-proofing and conflict resolution shows can be adapted to fit your school's terminology and main focus.
All shows can be adapted to fit special themes or reinforce messages that of concern.
These are the shows your teachers will rave about and thank you for having over and over again. Guaranteed-Great every time!
