Thirty-minutes featuring magic and music for kids and adults alike! Sponge-balls appear, disappear, multiply and divide in the spectator's hands! Silver hoops penetrate each other! A borrowed finger-ring instantly vanishes, only to re-appear tied to a shoe-lace! Mind-reading, apparent miracles with jumbo playing-cards, tons of audience-participation laughter, fun, mystery and colour! Beautiful, elegant magic is performed to music in-between the audience-participation illusions! Mike will often bring along his guitar for sing-a-longs. This show is suited to all audiences and plays well in homes, malls, fairs, theatres, restaurants and every location that has a stage (although not necessary). You'll be amazed and amused with this audience-participation, fun-filled show! Note-show not exactly as described. We reserve the right to change and/or substitute some tricks described for others. "Thanks for arranging Magic Mike. He was excellent with the children. He had a good sense of the age of the kids and was great at getting participation from them. I have never seen the kids sit still that long. He captivated and engaged them." - Tara, Birthday-Child's Mum "Magic Mike surprised us with a performance! It was great to have him there and he made us all laugh and had our jaws dropping with his illusions. Everyone had a blast and were very happy."- James, Volunteer Coordinator, Place Maillardville Community Centre "We were so fortunate to have Magic Mike in our classroom to teach us some magic. The lesson was very interactive and the students were able to learn and practice new tricks. Magic Mike was organized and open to answering any of the students' questions. We all had a great time!" - Grade 5 Teacher, Surrey School Division, B.C.
