Schools/Public Shows

Looking for some family-friendly entertainment for a large group? Make it MAGIC!! ‘The Amazing Mr. J’s Magic Show’ guarantees a fun-filled, family friendly, audience interactive performance featuring: a LIVE magic bunny rabbit, AND a LIVE magic dove (they’re tame and trained; the kids always love them), your guests of all ages as the star magic volunteers (should they wish), full audience involvement, and lively, colourful magic for everyone! The show runs an hour.

The Amazing Mr. J’s Magic Show is perfect for schools, malls, exhibitions, weddings, festivals, day cares, libraries, grand openings, parades, Christmas parties, Bar/Bat Mitzvah events, and many more! Having performed over 3500+ shows nationwide since 1999, The Amazing Mr. J can create personally customized shows for YOU!

Since you will have a wide age range of kids in attendance, as well as grown-ups, the magic show will be customized to keep everyone entertained simultaneously! There will be some extra balloon animal and balloon hat prizes provided for some of your guests as well!

Another easy feature: The Amazing Mr. J does all the set up for you!

A magic table, a sound system, a large magic curtain backdrop, and all the special props are provided for you. Plus, you can have the show indoors or outdoors, in any location or situation. Just pick where you want the show, and voila! EASY! How relaxed will you feel when you can invite an UNLIMITED number of guests, leave them all to me, and then sit back and enjoy the show yourself?

If you are a school or library looking for a show with an educational message for your students, here’s an idea:

‘The Magic of Reading’ is an award-winning educational show for schools and libraries!

‘The Magic of Reading’ is a high-energy, interactive, feel-good magic show with an important, repeated educational message: “Reading is Magic!” and “Readers are Leaders!”. All the magic in the show is custom-themed around the importance of reading, in various aspects of life.

You can use this show to promote literacy month at your school or library, a book fair, author visit, or even special events, like the birthday of Dr. Seuss! (March 2nd)

With the popularity of ‘Harry Potter’, magic and literacy already share a natural marriage in students’ minds. You can easily use ‘The Magic of Reading’ to promote literacy and a magical sharing experience at your school or library.

Each Show Features:

  • FREE school appropriate comic books courtesy of Strange Adventures, Halifax. (Naturally, when one of your students *wins* a free comic book prize in front of all their friends, it makes the reading material extra special, so girls and boys love to read them even more!)
  • An hour of high-energy magic, fun, interactive audience participation, and the positive promotion of literacy.
  • Helpful literacy information for your schools and teachers, plus reading tips for students to take home to their parents.
  • Adaptable to classrooms, libraries, and school gyms for any size audience, or age group, that you need.
  • Extra bonus magic prizes for everyone.

Feel free to call or e-mail anytime for a free quote, and to check remaining availability!

As you embrace your personal day of reflection, respect, and Remembrance...you are also showing your CHILDREN what this day is all about. Whether you have your own children, (or perform for them, like yours truly), we ALL have the Magic Power to be role models. Your solemnity and reverence for this day opens their eyes. Your gentle answering of their questions opens their minds. And the kindness you show for others all year round opens their HEARTS. Naturally, there isn't a parent in the world that wants their child to grow up surrounded by violence. As you may recognize, pictured here with 'Mr. J' is General Roméo Dallaire...Canadian hero, author, and founder of The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative. If you personally have also read The Honourable Mr. Dallaire's books, you'll also have been profoundly moved by his harrowing first hand accounts of children as young as 8, 9, and 10 being recruited as soldiers into the theatre of war. These accounts deeply affected me. (What's more, recently, I dated a wonderful Croatian woman, who grew up in the tragic and terrifying shadow of that country's 1990s Balkan conflicts). Hearing such harrowing stories, you feel deep empathy. You also feel overwhelming gratitude to be Canadian, and a palpable sense of responsibility. As you know, the calm and peace we breathe in Canada is the gift of Centuries, and must never be taken for granted. The price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance. As we honour all our veterans today, let's also share their 'Never Again' message with the next generation. This post is just a little friendly reminder to also try your best to role model kindness for children, too. May we treasure their innocence...they remain, as ever, our best and most magical hope for the future. "Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of mankind." -R.

Do you believe in Magic? Spoiler alert: It's real! 🙂 It's alive and well in the hearts of kids (of all ages). ;) Grateful for this wonderful review, after entertaining last week for some equally wonderful kids and adults:
"Oh, Mister J - you work so hard at your tricks and illusions - and your performance is simply wonderful art, transporting and solidly entertaining!
We appreciate how you captivated our entire group and appealed to the imaginative child in each of us. It was especially dear how you were able to conscript the youngsters and lead them into an understanding of your magical realm.
We hope to see you again and we remain -
your fans and admirers- Joan Nightengale & Family, Cole Harbour, NS (November 2020) #BirthdayParty #AmazingMisterJ #Magician #Magic #Joy #Happiness #Believe #MagicIsReal

For YOUR Hallowe'en...the man who lives it ALL YEAR (!)...ALICE COOPER! You'll be happy to hear the Prince of Darkness is super cool, and conversational, in person, as my brother Chris and I luckily learned. Didja know the spooky song-man is actually an avid GOLF LOVER? Plus he actually has a deep-rooted fear of snakes? And get this: he once lived next door to, (and partied with), GROUCHO MARX?!? Weird is truly wonderful. Y'know, maybe Alice's song: "Welcome to My Nightmare" could apply to 2020, but here's hoping this October 31st, your spirit finds all the far-out fun of your freaky festivities. Bonus: This year features a FULL MOON (!!), so may your kids, (and/or your personal inner child!), enjoy the MAGIC of Hallowe'en. Alice is counting on you! ;) #AmazingMisterJ #AliceCooper #Magic #Magician #BirthdayParty #Halloween2020 #FullMoon #BalloonSnake #BalloonSpider ... See MoreSee Less
