School Magic Show page. The Magical Island magic show is a true hit in schools. London schools have a lot of children's magician shows to choose from so it's important to do your research before you book one! This theatre-style show redefines what a children's magic show can be. Teachers often say they were as captivated as the children. Visit the main site!
This magic show of course has magic from start to finish, but what makes this show special for schools is that the magic is also tied together with a narrative and songs especially composed for the act, plus linked with a stirring narrative with puppets to drive the story along.
The story is about a Magical Island with pirates, singing animals and fairy princesses who have been cast under the spell of the pirates. The children learn from the magician who lives on the island that they can break the spell of the pirates by not being afraid.
The show is particularly appropriate for schools because the approach is to engage children's imaginations during the show rather than just hyping them up and getting them to go crazy . Children's magicians are usually known for their silly jokes and screaming but it's not the only way. Does Christopher's approach work? You'll know if you check out the children's magic shows testimonials section.

"I've worked in a school for 25 years and so have seen more than my share of entertainers. I've never seen children as transfixed as they were with this show. You didn't lose them for a minute!"
- Mr. P. Pannell, (saw Christopher's magician show for 5 year old boys and girls)
"Christopher captured the children's imaginations, taking them on an exciting journey into the realms of magic. He has a wonderful manner with the children, involving them in his activities to the extent that they were hanging onto his every word and action! We highly recommend Christopher's magic shows."
- Mrs. D. Davies, Wetherby School, (Notting Hill Gate, London), (children's entertainer for ages 4-7)

- Mrs. E. Birkett-Evans, School Manager, Thomas's School, (Kensington, London), (children's entertainer for ages 4-6)
