part book talk, part magic show, and a ton of fun!!!
Brand New for 2019...
Christopher t. Magician Presents:
In his brand new 2019 Summer Reading show Page to Stage, Christopher T. Magician (the T stands for Taco!) introduces audiences to some of his favorite art and theatre themed children’s books. Then with the audience’s help, he brings the books to life on stage with his hilarious blend of wacky, interactive magic.
What makes Christopher T. Magician’s library magic show different than the rest? Sure, his magic is fun and funny for children. Sure, he has over twenty years of experience performing exclusively for young audiences. Sure, he has written two books and lectures around the world, teaching other magicians how to entertain kids with magic...
But the reason librarians love Christopher is because every piece of magic he performs is directly related to a popular children’s book. During his show, he introduces the book, provides a quick synopsis of the story, and then brings the story to life with hilarious, interactive magic!
“I am the Children's Librarian at a small library and we hired Christopher T. Magician for a performance during our Summer Reading Program! He was my favorite performance of the summer! He was great with the kids and genuinely funny, even to me! Christopher was great to work with and very accommodating to our library's theme for the summer, the small space to perform in and lack of a designated performance area. He was on time and I could tell he was excited to be there. I will definitely hire him again in the future!” - Camille H,, Librarian, Calimesa Library
“I was so pleased and impressed with Christopher T. Magician's performance! I'm a children's librarian, and we hosted him this summer as a part of our Summer Reading program. I watched from the back of the room and heard so much laughter and giggling. He does a great job getting the kids to participate, and seems to have a ton of fun himself. I got great feedback from our parents and kids, and he is definitely on our list of guests to invite back in the future. Thanks so much, Christopher!” - Christina M., Librarian, Altadena Library District

“Just saw him perform at the Altadena library, and he was fantastic! My kids haven't stopped talking about the show. (They are 4 and 5 years old.) They were absolutely enthralled! I highly recommend checking out his show.” - Tara H., Mother
