About this title


Hardcover, 6" x 9" (15 x 23 cm), 178 pages

There are plenty of books that tell you what to perform for children. Now there's a book that tells you everything the other books leave out: how to perform for children.

In Performing Magic for Children, Michael Sondermeyer and Uwe Schenk, who are not only professional magicians but also educational specialists, discuss every aspect of this difficult branch of magic, including:

· what children need from a magic performance
· the role of the performer
· how to develop a suitable performing persona
· how to select appropriate tricks for children
· how to make standard tricks suit children
· the pros and cons of using live animals
· how to design a successful act
· pacing, restlessness and attention spans
· how to select a child to assist
· how to handle infants, teenagers & adults
· what to do when a child cries
· how to prevent children from storming the stage at the end of the show

Referred to by many professional children's performers as "the book on kid shows" and "the Bible on working for children", this book is a must-have for anybody interested in performing magic for children. Reviews

Michael Close, Magic: "It's a marvelous book, and one of the most thorough books on the subject that I have read. The book deals with theoretical concepts, but never gets bogged down in theory. I highly recommend Performing Magic for Children to anyone in the field of children's entertainment. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned professional, you'll find something of interest here. I would also recommend it to those who work strictly for adults. Adults learn something during magic shows as well, and it would behoove all of us to consider what message we are sending when we perform."
