The "I Love Reading" Show

A Show that Educates as well as Entertains

Itís more than a Magic Show!
Steve Rodman will make your students laugh, think, and wonder...

and if theyíre not careful,
they might even learn something...

Dear Event Coordinator,

Studies show that children who read have better grades, are more attentive in class, and are smarter than those who donít read.

My show encourages reading in a Magical Way!

Hi, Iím Steve Rodman.

I have created the "I Love Reading" show for schools - it is a mind-boggling variety show that combines magic, circus skills and comedy that showcases a love of reading and of books. All the routines I perform involve the students and encourages them to read more and read often...and much more!

Some of the books I use in the show are:

-The Seven Chinese Brothers by Margaret Mahy
-Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
-The Giving Tree by Shel Siverstein
-The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper
-Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina
-The Magic Book by Harry Lorayne
-The Great Houdini by Williams & Epstein -The Complete Juggler by Dave Finnigan
-Alice Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll -The Adventures of Curious George by H.A. Rey

This show is a wonderful tie-in to other programs youíre currently running especially PARP.

Hereís what others who have had me perform say about my presentation:

"Steve was fantastic! He put on a quality performance that was enjoyed by all who saw him. I recommend Steve to any school or organization that wants to have a great show!"

"The students loved him. He did a great job of getting the audience involved."

"Thank you for introducing our school to Steve Rodman! Steveís act is a finely honed, professional presentation of the best magic available. He was able to grab the students right away and hold them for an hour. Magical!"

"You put on a sensational show. The students loved you. Thanks again for the wonderful performance. Iím still hearing great things about you."

"Steve Rodmanís magic show captivated the students. Such a good rapport with members of the audience made the show more personal as well as humorous."

"The students truly enjoyed your performance."

R…SUM…:

Now I know what youíre thinking (after all, Iím a magician), "How do I know my school will be getting a professional performer and not someone with little or no experience?"

To put your mind at ease, and to give you the confidence of my professional status, below are just a few of the places and shows Iíve done for the past 30 years as a full time entertainer (Iíve purposely left out comedy clubs, resorts and colleges).

Rest assured youíll be getting my many years of experience working with children.

Show Specifics:

I come completely self-contained to perform a forty-five minute to one hour show (depending on your time needs) with my own sound system and microphone (did I mention the musical numbers in my show?).

All students receive a magic booklet that has six magic tricks they can learn on their own. It also contains a brief story on Harry Houdini that they can read at home.

The cost of the show depends on how far I travel and how many shows Iíll be performing for your school. If your school is local for me, the cost is only $425 for the first show and only $200 for each additional show (same school, same day). There are no hidden fees, no deposit required, no extra costs. When you call, please ask about discounted fees on multiple shows in other schools in your district.

Also, youíll be glad to know that my show is BOCES affiliated AND fully insured!

A Guarantee You Wonít Believe:

Hereís an offer you wonít find with other performers. If you book the "I Love Reading" show right now, and the students donít laugh, donít learn, donít love it...you donít have to pay me at all!

That is correct...I believe so much in the show I have created that I know the kids (as well as the teachers) will be entertained, enlightened, and inspired. If not, at the end of the show, Iíll walk away and youíll owe nothing.

Who else can make you an offer like that? Thatís how much I believe in what I do.

Call me now to insure that the date youíre interested in is available.

Youíll be glad your students experienced the "I Love Reading" show.

I guarantee it!!

Sincerely,


Steve Rodman
