WOW, it is a very busy summer with lots of magic shows at libraries and festivals.
Last week had 5 libraries and also a very fun group of 240 kids and teachers at a summer school program in Chatfield, MN.
The director was so kind to write this note about the magic show.
“Norm visited our school age child care program and our kids loved it! Lots of fun! thanks Norm!” Sue T. Director Valleyland Kids.
She likes exclamation points! Cool, and it was fun for me to hear the laughter and the oohs and ahhs from the assembled bunch.
The children really like to get involved and help with the magic tricks and this makes it fun for me to see how each youngster engages themself with the various tricks. They will often say the funniest things on stage and it is always a new show for me.
Enjoy the summer!
My wife taking a picture of the Cascade River near Lake Superior.
This was a fascinating picture I took. Fog over lake Superior and dark rain clouds coming over the lake from behind me… the sky opened and behind was this lovely view of clouds and blue skies in the distant Eastern sky.
Up North at Cabin for a week near Grand Marais, MN. I came back to do some 4th of July magic shows.
I just returned from my 4th or 5th year at a Independence Day Celebration in Chaska, MN. This year the magic show featured the Flag trick where I talk about the various colors of the flag and what they stand for … A young lady makes them each disappear with a flash of the magic wand and then they magically assemble in a newspaper to become the U.S. Flag. I then encourage the kids to read more at their local library about history.
Several people came up to ask if I could be at their library soon. I was not sure, but they said they say Mr. Norm in the Newspaper, so when I check – indeed Chaska Library two shows on Wednesday of this coming week after the 4th. This will be my 10-12 the appearance at this wonderful library over the past 30 years. Usually the second show is a bit less crowded. Please call the Chaska library for details.
Most of my work is repeat and word of mouth and I guess people enjoy the tricks and the comedy magic show.
Enjoy your summer indeed.
