Silly Magic Show

The Balloon Lady just finished magic school! Hooray!

But as you'll soon find out . . . she didn't exactly . . . study . . . .

This silly, fun, and interactive magic show will delight children aged 4-8, and amuse their parents and teachers. 

The show has educational themes which can be stated more explicitly for school performances. These include: the importance of reading/learning/study, the danger of eating things you shouldn't, why and how to ask for help, and the value of humility.
