Program description: Watch children erupt into laughter and applause when Doctor VolCaino appears! Magician Ron Cain turns into a silly scientist for his new Fizztastic Science Magic Show, inspired by the summer reading theme, 'Fizz, Boom, Read! He performs illusions that celebrate science and highlight great scientists like Einstein and Edison. Plus, he encourages families to visit the library and read about his lab-coated heroes. Ron also teaches scientific principles behind the tricks of his trade in a Scientific Secrets of Magic workshop. Children learn simple magic tricks that involve chemistry, physics, biology, psychology and math. The former teacher and Syracuse University alum has specialized in educational magic since 1988. Children are active participants in shows related to reading, history, science, geography and ecology. Students also do hands-on activities that foster learning and self-esteem in his one-hour magical workshops. Ron also performs at schools, libraries, festivals, recreation programs and businesses year-round. His family-friendly, 45-minute magic shows are the highlight of special events & holiday celebrations. He even offers entertainment packages that include strolling magic and balloon sculptures.
Space/special requirements: Ron brings his own sound system and performance table. He can perform anywhere, as long as there is room for his audience to sit in front of him. He usually needs access to an electrical outlet and may ask to borrow a small table to place extra tricks on.
