A BIG thank you from the Grade 1/2 teachers and students. The kids were so excited and engaged and absolutely loved your show (the teachers had a ball too).

This is a more theatrical stage size version of the Mad Hatter Magic Show with a picnic table, larger props, and the levitation of a child from the audience.

It requires a 20 minute set up time without children present, and a 10 minute bump out time. The show can be performed in a double classroom with a minimum 4m deep by 6m wide performance space.

The Mad Hatter Magic Show
For the last five years The Mad Hatter Magic Show has sold out at The Melbourne Magic Festival and, by public demand, we have now taken this show into schools.

It's a highly interactive, hilariously theatrical magical slice of Wonderland, and as entertaining for the teachers as it is for the kids.

As an introduction to theatre, the show is a wonderful example of the power of character, as The Hatter completely engages the audience for a full hour of magic and improvisation. Plus it's a great chance for the kids to play dress ups and come in costume as their favourite Wonderland character.

It's also perfect introduction to the world of literature, as the kids want to know more about The Hatter after the show and are very eager to read "his story" in Alice in Wonderland, plus it's a great way to introduce kids to theatre without them even realising it!
