"I just wanted to write you a note thanking you for your performance today at Scullen Middle School. Our students were incredibly engaged and I truly believe that they were able to hear your message of kindness because you were able stimulate their minds through magic during your delivery. You were also able to differentiate your delivery and adjust it to the maturity level of your audience. The 6th, 7th, and 8th graders all received the same message, but you were able to present it to them at their varying maturity levels."
Scott Loughrige, Assistant Principal, Scullen Middle School (Naperville, IL)

Family Night Magic Shows
This is the best family night magic show, full stop.
Students have a great time. But adults have just as much fun with this amazing show full of surprises and mind-blowing magic that's really, really funny.
If you've seen other family night magic shows before, you probably think they're just for the children. But Scott Green literally wrote the book on performing magic for all-ages audiences, Excellence in Family Magic. He's renowned nationally in the magic world specifically because his shows entertain children and adults together.
#1 on Yelp and a staple on Chicago television, Scott is simply a cut above. This is the family night show your school will be raving about for years.
Pair one of Scott's family magic shows with assemblies and two great things happen: first, attendance at the after-school event spikes as students drag their parents to see the funny magician from school today; and two, you'll get a great discount.
You can have Scott for your school's family night - or you can settle for someone who merely read his book.
