Maine Magician & Family Entertainer Weblog 1 of 2009

Well it’s good to get a chance to get another blog off to everyone again. I recently participated in a couple of fair tradeshows in January and February. The Maine Fair convention was a blast. I got to go down with a good buddy and magician and we spent the night performing and sharing magic. I had a nice time seeing a lot of the Fair folks that came from all parts to come to the convention. I also had a nice time in VT at the NH/VT Fair convention. I got to take my family and we were able to have some time together. I had a bit of a mishap down there staying in the hot tub too long and then getting to visit the local hospital because of it. (I’m sure I’m not the only one to have done this. At least that the doctor assured me of that.)

From the conventions I booked several fairs. Some new to me and some repeats. I also have some possible ones as well, once they get back to their committees for final decisions.  February Vacation is great this year everyday has been booked! I’ll be at several libraries doing magic workshops and also some shows. Sugarloaf is in the mix as well for the Children’s Festival.

I’m currently working on my Summer Reading Magic Show and looking forward to the spring. I’ve got some new trick ordered and have been working on some new routines that I hope will be well received this year in the shows.  I’m gearing up for the Maine Parks and Recreation Entertainment Showcase next month as well as touching base with community festivals. I’m also working toward doing more Gospel Magic this year. Please keep this in your prayers as I endeavor to reach those who might not know the saving knowledge of Christ.  Well that’s about it for now, so enjoy the weather as it gets warmer.

Until my next blog….remember to find the magic in life!

The New Maine Magician’s Blog!

Greetings folks, friends, and clients!

I have stepped into a new way of keeping in touch and decided to start a monthly blog. Here you’ll find out what’s been happening in the world of Maine magician Conjuring Carroll. Since this blog is the first of many to come and half the month has already gone by, I’ll try to give you an overview of what I’ve been doing and what’s coming up.

I recently sent out my a mailing to the Maine libraries my new Summer Reading Magic Show “Bug Magic: Catch the Reading Bug!”  This year national summer reading theme is “Catch the Reading Bug at the Library”. I decided to piggyback the theme and created a fun bug magic show. It has interesting bug facts, jokes and lots of great magic! I’ve already booked the program at several libraries for their summer reading programs.

I recently was at Husson College in Bangor, performing a Gospel magic show. This Gospel magic show was sponsored by the Husson Campus Crusades for Christ International group that meets on Wednesday by the fireplace at 6:ooPM. The show was held in the Kominsky Auditorium and we had about 80 people attend. The went very well except we had a bit of tech trouble near the end with the sound. Fortunately God gave me a loud voice! 🙂 After speaking with one of the organizers of the event I was told only a handful of the crowd were with the local Campus Crusades group. So the outreach event was a success and many heard of God’s love. The student paper was there for part of the show and took some photo’s. I’m not sure if there will be anything in the college paper but I certainly hope so. For more on Husson College go to http://www.husson.edu

I also performed a magic show at a local senior center in central Maine. This show was great as I was able to work with senior of the community which is a great feeling. All that were there really enjoyed the magic show. I was also able to speak with a couple of people who remembered seeing magicians of their time that I would’ve loved to seen.

The end of March I’ll be gearing up to go to the Maine Parks & Recreation Entertainment Showcase in Windham, ME. It’s held at the high school and is were local talent from Maine and New England come to showcase a small part of their program and speak with recreation staff on booking dates. It’s a great time for me as I look forward to seeing many of my clients and good friends in the performing arts industry. The Maine Parks & Recreation website is http://www.merpa.org/ which has more information about the Entertainment Showcase and the Maine Parks and Recreation Organization. 

Well I guess that’s it for this blog. I hope you enjoyed learning how things are going here and hope you’ll check in next month for my next blog. Until then have a wonderful Spring!
