Magic for Kids
In Brett Roberts’ magic shows, he gets to combine the skills he has spent most of his life working on. First of all, Brett was an elementary teacher for seven years. He knows what kind of things are age appropriate and entertaining for different groups of kids. He also spent eight years running a magic shop. This is where he taught professional magicians how to perform the tricks they make a living with. Every week he would get new magic tricks to sell. When these tricks would come in, he would learn all the new, cutting edge magic. Brett’s skills as a teacher and a magician make his performances guaranteed fun. Every year he writes a new show to fit the summer reading theme. The show for 2016 is called Motivational Magic.
This presentation was inspired by coaches who give their team a pep talk before the big game. They say things like “You can do it!” and “Be the best you can be!” That kind of motivation is what this magic show is all about. These magic routines are full of lots of audience participation that build up good self-esteem. The children are the stars of this show because they are the ones who make the magic happen. All the kids will leave the show feeling good about themselves. The curriculum in this performance was written by Julie DeJean, administrative director of Stormont-Vail West, a behavioral medicine hospital in Topeka, Kansas. It is designed to aid in cognitive function, speech, self-esteem, depression, and social skills… but most of all, it’s fun!
Brett always makes me laugh!
Brett Roberts always makes me laugh. And feeding into the energy of the crowd at his events, makes my day always a little bit brighter. I highly recommend scheduling him. One of my favorite things about him as a performer is his inclusion of books and reading. His characters always highlight why it is important to read and this shows kids that books are cool. He also promotes kindness to others and confidence in one's self through his characters and as a librarian and a human being; I just love that his shows include those aspects. I can not recommend him enough for any library program. Book him now!
Brett is AMAZING! What a cool guy!
I have had Brett Roberts here to perform programs for the last 8 years. "Back by popular demand" is my phrase for him. :) You can tell Brett puts a lot of thought, energy, love, time and talent into creating and performing his fun, funny, educational shows. Also, Brett is so easy and wonderful to work with. He's reliable, honest, and an all-around cool guy! I definitely recommend Brett Roberts for your events! Kids and adults love him!
Brett is a complete professional and is extremely easy to work with. He does a great job interacting with the kids and making the experience fun and entertaining for all! He has apprenticed with Jim Henson productions and MIT! I never have to worry when he comes. He is always early and ready to go! I adore Brett and will continue to book him every SRC!
We love Brett!
We have invited Brett to the Summer Reading Program for three years in a row. His shows are always new, fresh, magic filled and informative. He puts a lot of thought into his shows and makes a lasting impression on the kids. Some quotes from parents, "My kids love this guy!" "The kids can't wait to go home and try some magic tricks on dad!"
Brett is a gifted entertainer, reliable, and will offer a memorable show!
One of my favorite performers EVER!
Brett Roberts has performed as part of the Summer Reading Program at my current library all three years I have worked here. He is incredibly talented, hilarious, great with the kids, and always has a positive message in his shows. He truly has a love for what he does. If you're a fan of puppets and grew up, as I did, watching The Muppets or anything Jim Henson, you will appreciate Brett's work. He obviously puts a lot of love into his scripts, his puppets and props, and in his performance. His shows are great for a wide range of ages. I love the combination of jokes, magic, and theater that are woven into each of his shows. One thing he always does during the summer shows at the library is mention specific topics, people, and books. He even tells kids where to find these items in the library, going as far as to have kids recite a specific Dewey Decimal Number. I love that! Brett always shows up early to set up, is pleasant and easy to work with, an is just plain fun to be around.
I have found that kids from age 3 up to age 12 (and, let's be honest, way beyond 12!) enjoy his shows. He adds in extras such as showing kids how to performer a certain trick, which I really feel endears the kids to him.
I highly recommend hiring Brett Roberts for your school, company, or birthday event. He is the one performer I will always book for my library's summer programming!
