Kids love the spellbinding surprise and wonder of magic shows - rabbits pulled from empty hats and things disappearing magically before their eyes.
They often sit there mesmerized and wondering, "How did they do that?"
Tom Plunkard, a Master Magician, will keep them guessing with his upcoming show "It’s Magic" July 9 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m at the Brighton District Library. Although this is a drop-in program for kids ages five and older, tickets will go quickly, so plan on arriving thirty minutes prior to get your ticket.
A program is on tap for adults later that evening, if you enjoy astronomy, dabble in constellations or wonder what lies beyond our planet. The program, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. will be about astronomy, with a focus on black holes.
Brendan Miller, a post-doctoral researcher from the University of Michigan will discuss the phenomena and unravel the mystery behind them. Join us. Call 810-229-6571, ext. 227 to register. Here is more information on both programs:
Hocus Pocus, it’s the magic of award-winning Metro Detroit Magician and actor, Tom Plunkard. Brace yourself for a truly engaging, amazing and hilarious program. This high-energy presentation will appear to last as long as you can say “abracadabra”. Among the many exceptional acts, you will witness a cage full of birds vanish and a volunteer will be suspended in mid-air.
Plunkard’s show will warm your hearts and stretch your cheek muscles with captivating performances filled with modern music, fun audience participation and loads of humor that can be enjoyed by anyone. His educational shows are filled with powerful messages ingeniously intertwined with high impact illusions that are entertaining and amazing.
Do you geek black holes? Well, Brendan Miller, a post-doctoral researcher from the University of Michigan does and he’ll be at the library to discuss his research on them.
What exactly is a black hole? NASA describes them as a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can’t get out. Because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes, they’re invisible. That’s pretty amazing and a great way to integrate science into our aptly themed "Summer Nights" reading program.
