You Are the Magic! with Jolly Roger

A Look into the Creative Aspects of Children's Entertainment

jolly rogerPerforming for and engaging children are not all about magic tricks or puppet skills. In this lecture, Roger Blakiston aka Jolly Roger talks about the facets of kids entertainment that are so often ignored, like:
  • branding
  • costuming
  • improvisation
  • the business side of children's entertainment
  • silliness
  • audience participation
  • engaging children in a non-traditional way
Roger also discusses how to create a routine for children from the ground up, making it uniquely your own. To illustrate the process, he gives an example of a routine which he has developed for over 10 years, and shows a video of this routine being performed.
