We did magic shows for teens and for family audiences in Alexandria and Cairo as well as other cities along the Nile.

Newspaper Report on Minnesota Magician Dazzling & Delighting Audience

Magic Norm Dazzles, Delights all Ages at Library

By Ryan Anderson

NOrm at Owatonna Library 2017

OWATONNA — A considerable crowd of children got their summer off to a magical start Thursday at the Owatonna Public Library, as “Magic Norm” dazzled those in attendance with his tricks.

“Oohs” and “ahs” emanated from the audience as Norm Barnhart executed a panoply of illusions, including tearing a newspaper apart in front of the group, then somehow reassembling it. He also performed card tricks, taking care to mention “the library card is the most valuable card of all,” and brought up a handful of children throughout the show to assist him in his endeavors.

“Watch, don’t blink, or you’ll miss it,” he told his audience at the start of his funny and high-energy show. “The magic happens very fast.”

He’s “a show all on his own,” said Darla Lager, the children’s librarian. With Barnhart, it’s more than merely magic, it’s “a full performance.”

The article continues — 

His attire alone, a tuxedo, sends the message that his act “is something big,” she added. He also tends to pack the house, and Tuesday was no exception.

Barnhart has performed at the Owatonna Library numerous times, he said. “It’s fun, and I get to promote reading.”

He often dropped in references to books during his set Thursday. He also urged children to make use of their library.

The library steps up programming during the summer, providing opportunities for students while they’re out of school, she said. Barnhart actually performed twice in Steele County Thursday, as he visited the Blooming Prairie library in the afternoon following his morning show in Owatonna.

Barnhart first began toying with magic when he was roughly five “as a hobby, and it somehow turned into a job,” he said. “I love hearing the sound of laughter.”

He maintains a busy schedule, performing at events ranging from company outings and resorts to festivals and holiday parties. He’s also written numerous books on magic.
