Magic for Older Adults
Colin has devised a selection of magic and other related activities especially for people in residential care and nursing homes. This magic is very visual and has simple plots that do not require the audience to follow from beginning to end. Magical productions of umberellas to “singing in the rain”, black rings become multicoloured to “somewhere over the rainbow” .
Puppets and Ventriloquism
Puppet on a String!
I was surprised when I first started to add balloon modelling during my shows for the elderly to see how much they enjoyed watching me create creatures and flowers from lengths of latex. I tell them about all the different twists that you have to learn in order to make a giant monkey up a tree and how it’s all about getting the proportions right. At the end of the 45 minutes they are left with a collection of balloons to display or to give to their visitors.
Shows are normally 45 minutes long and can be a mix of all the elements or you can have one session on magic and then the next session featuring puppets followed by balloon modelling. Special rates are available for multiple bookings. Please call for more details.
