A magical and enjoyable explanation as to why the delights of reading a novel are so much better than watching a mainstream movie adaptation of the same story, and why reading is so much fun anyway. We reference and perform amazing magic routines around popular favourites such as James and the Giant Peach, Five Children and It, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, the Harry Potter series, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Borrowers, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz series and more modern tales such as David Walliams’s Demon Dentist. This show is entertaining, informative, and explains about conflict and resolution in children’s literature and about the structure of a good story.
The show is an hour in length and was written originally for Key Stage 2 children, though we also now have a different version of the show for Key Stage 1 children.
We can often also add in magic routines based around one or two books from your own current school reading list too!
Finally, we also do a show "The Magic of Reading" which is a lighter version of this show keeping all the exciting magic, fun fictional characters and costume changes but at the same time keeping it "fact light" which means we can do even more magic and have even more fun than usual in the time.
Now booking for Spring 2019 onwards.
