The Wiz is an enchanting show that enthralls audiences of all ages.  Spellbinding magic and hysterical comedy create a fun atmosphere where kids quickly discover that through reading anything is possible. 

 

The adventure begins with Robert the Reading Wizard introducing the kids to Merlin – King Arthur’s court magician.  Traveling back in time, aided by the historical novel “Christmas in Camelot”, the kids learn that Merlin lived during a time of kings, queens, knights, dragons, hair-raising exploits, and great magic.  The kids gasp as they watch a bird come climbing out of Merlin’s goblet.  

 

Next, a riot of laughter ensues when a young audience member – inspired by Strega Nona’s “Magic Lessons” – attempts to perform the opening ceremony that will officially start the show.    

 

From there on its non-stop action as eight different books are featured and then illustrated with magic and illusion woven throughout their pages.  Age appropriate books are selected based upon a graduated scale for kindergarten through fifth grade.    

 

Robert uses interactive theatre, audience participation, story-telling, comedy, music and magic to help kids uncover the rewards found within the pages of a book. 

 

Like all of our themed reading shows The Wiz focuses on books and literacy.  Librarians love our shows because we pack a powerful message that motivates kids to read.  Kids love our shows because they are just plain FUN!
