Program description: American history comes alive when Bill Gormont brings THE GREAT AMERICAN MAGIC SHOW to your library. This exciting show reinforces our nation's birth and history through entertaining situations filled with magic, illusion and fun. Bill highlights special people and important historical moments that include our first flag, the Declaration of Independence and much, much more. He introduces a modern day Betsy Ross (an audience volunteer) with a hilarious flag routine. Betsy would be proud to see Bill, the stage and accessories decked out in red, white and blue. Audience participation is always a large part of the show. Lucky spectators are invited to have fun on stage as they enjoy learning about our first U.S. Presidents in a magical sort of way. The grand finale is filled with surprise, action and colorful productions. What a wonderful way to close out a fun filled educational experience that celebrates the history of our great nation and stirs the patriotism in our hearts.
