A show that is 100% pure fun!
What is the Pure Imagination Magic Show? We like to use the phrase that we hear most often from our Midwest library clients, “the funniest program we have ever had at our library”.
Chris the magician, who is also a nationally acclaimed children's entertainer and show host, creates a constant stream of giggles, guffaws, and smiles with a barrage of wacky, wild, and amazing magic tricks. The audience, both the kids and parents, help craft this magic show as it is happening by becoming a part of the magical routines. It is a performance you can file under “F” for FUNNY.
Be sure to pull your books on magic and performing arts for a display at the show, as Chris works in book recommendations into his show and encourages kids to check out a magic book to try some magic on their own.
Chris has been a regular performer at Michigan, Ohio and Illinois libraries since he began performing at the Auburn Hills Library in Auburn Hills Michigan in 1989! Today, he is in demand as a magic show entertainer at some of the world's top family attractions, including Walt Disney World, Navy Pier, and the San Diego Zoo. Every summer, however, Chris sets aside time in his schedule to return to Michigan to perform at summer reading programs.
The Pure Imagination Magic Show is sure to be the talk of your library families.

• Magic shows are some of the biggest draws of any library program event. Booking the Pure Imagination Magic Show is a sure-fire way to get lots of families at your summer reading kick-off or wrap-up party.
• The magician brings a sound system and all the fun props for the performance. The show is small enough to be able to be presented in a small corner of a library, and big enough to fill a larger venue with laughs.
• This show is 100% “kid-friendly” with no knives, swords or inappropriate comedy that can, unfortunately, sometimes be found in “family” magic shows.
• If you are planning Halloween party or winter event at your library, be sure to check out our special Halloween magic show and Winter Holiday shows.

“On Saturday August 15, we had the Pure Imagination Magic show with magician Chris perform at our Summer Reading Club Finale Party. I just wanted you to know what a delight he was and how much fun he made the day. Chris was professional and very, very, VERY entertaining. We would definitely have him back.”Lori S. - Asst. Branch Librarian - Marysville Library, Marysville, Michigan
“The performance kept our audience of 200 (of all ages) completely engaged. The show got our summer reading off to a terrific start. Many people stopped in weeks after your show to tell us how much they enjoyed it and how much they laughed.”Paula S. - Youth Services, Saline District Library, Saline, Michigan
