Science Magic + Family Night Magic Show
for Cedar Way in Mountlake Terrace
Thanks Ellen and the Cedar Way PTO for sponsoring my two shows yesterday. Whenever possible, I really recommend having an afternoon assembly to precede a Family Night show. Giving kids a chance to see my show during the day virtually guarantees a full house in the evening, and this was no exception.
“We have never had so many people attend one of our Family Enrichment Nights! I think doing the assembly during the day really boosted our attendance in the evening. The kids obviously loved your performance! My four-year-old and my 10-year-old both loved it!… In fact, he said his friends think I am a cool Mom because I brought you to the school. Thanks again. I am so glad we had you come.”
-Shelly Smith, Cedar Valley P. T. A.
I presented my Science Magic assembly during the day and returned in the evening with my just-for-fun program. (Schools: when you book two programs on the same day, the second program is at a nearly 40% discount off the first-show rate. And of course, you’re welcome to charge admission, sell refreshments, sell raffle tickets, etc. to offset the cost of the extra show.)
