Mighty Sleighty Magic Enrichment
A 30 minute to one hour magic course which focuses on hands on, one on one instruction. Students will explore several magic effects and are taught to perform “impromptu” magic: magic with common everyday items. Typical ready-made plastic magic tricks are quickly lost or broken. The use of easily replaced impromptu items ensures that the skills and techniques mastered in Andrew’s class will last a lifetime. Students will take home their impromptu kits and an additional magic booklet. Classes are loaded with laughter and learning.
Dear Mr. Martin, I want to thank you for taking time out of your schedule for the magic class. I know you have a busy schedule because you had a show to do an hour late. I really enjoyed the class. My younger sister and others in the family enjoyed the tricks I learned there. The class was fun and it was fun to learn them, I came home after that class and made perfect balloon dog! Your class just made me more interested in magic. I’m hoping to see you at Ralphies soon. Thanks again. Sincerely, your fellow magician,
Alex (Devauex Jr. High)
Magic With Eli

Magic effects are sophisticated and elegant while comedic riffs remain clean and age appropriate.
Dear Andrew, Just a note to say thanks for the awesome performance you gave for our golf teams end of the year blow-out. I know its hard to win over a bunch of sophisticated teenagers, but you had them eating out of the palm of your hand! Well see you soon at the Maumee Bay Brewing Company. Thanks again!

Dear Mr. Martin, Boy Scout Pack 751 of Ottawa Lake, leaders and parents would like to thank you for you fun and mystifying performance at our recent Blue and Gold Banquet. Everyone really enjoyed it. The kids thought you were very funny. As leaders, we especially liked the way you handled the scouts; you kept control of the program (and the scouts) in a humorous but firm manner so that it made for an enjoyable time for everyone. Having an interactive show kept the kids interested as well as gave them the opportunity to become part of the show. At this age, watching just a performer on stage can sometimes be a strain for kids to sit through. We can honestly say you didnt lose them once! Speaking for the adults in the audience, your magic was first rate and your comedy very funny. It was truly a good time for the entire family. Thank you so much for being a part of our Blue and Gold Banquet. Wishing you continued success in your magical career. Sincerely,
The Scouts and Leaders of Pack 751

Fun & Fantasy
A delightful and lighthearted magic show great for rewards programs, field days, after proficiencies, or simply as a unique way to bring students and teachers together for laughter, joy and wonder. In what has become his signature routine, Andrew relies heavily on audience participation as he blends music, magic and comedy into a mystical medley of mayhem! This is the show students will talk about for years. When combined with the Mighty Sleighty Magic Enrichment Class, Andrew’s Fun & Fantasy program just may become the genesis for a new generation of merry merlins.
Giggles Galore Guaranteed!
Hi Andrew, I am so sorry I didn’t get a chance to come down after your second show and say thank you. You were awesome! I had a third grade class after the assembly and they were raving about you. The fifth graders had a blast in your enrichment classes. You are a pro! See you next year.
