Christmas-themed Magic Show hosted by Macedon Library

Macedon Public Library is hosting a professional Christmas-themed magic show, open to the community, on December 16, 2017 at 2:00 PM, at the Macedon Public Library, located at 30 Main St Macedon, NY 14502 .

The show, titled “Christmas Magic,” is being used as part of the library’s efforts to encourage children to read more during the holiday season.

The magic show, presented by professional magician Cris Johnson, will feature music, age appropriate humor, fun magic, audience participation, and more. The show is intended for children ages 4 and up as well as fun-loving teens and adults.

“This particular magic show is something different; it was designed to promote what the meaning of Christmas is supposed to be in terms of kindness and a giving attitude, but this show does not feature any religious content,”

Stacey Wicksall explains. “The show will feature magic such as beautiful Christmas lights appearing from thin air, a drawing of a Christmas elf that comes to life, an indoor ‘Snowstorm’, and more!”

Why did magician Cris Johnson go to the trouble of creating an entire show around Christmas? “I’ve been creating and presenting themed shows to libraries and schools all across North America for nearly 20 years and it’s a passion of mine,” Cris explains. “With budget cuts increasing all the time, we as a community really need to support our local libraries, encourage children to read more, spend fewer hours on digital devices, and protect our children’s future.”

Cris Johnson’s “Christmas Magic” requires no admission thanks to generous funding from Friends of Macedon Public Library. For the best seating, plan on arriving fifteen minutes early.
