Like Cris’ other programs, the “A Cat And A Hat” character education & reading appreciation school assembly program uses age-appropriate humor, tons of audience participation, music and plenty of amazing magic to keep the students focused. Additionally, Cris provides a fun “recap” of the entire show at the end to reinforce his messages.
As always, Cris brings all of his own props and tables, and carries his own backdrop and compact state-of-the-art sound system. This is an act that can be performed in almost any location, large rooms or small, stage, auditorium, classroom or cafeteria. It can be adjusted to be suitable for groups of from 10 to 350.
Schools with larger enrollments should have two programs. Splitting a full-range school into, say, one K-2 program and another for grades 3-5 allows Cris to customize the language, magic effects, objectives and vocabulary to the different grade levels. When performing for Primary grades, Cris will make the school assembly program lighter, faster and more fun. When presenting the same program to Upper Elementary, Cris will use higher vocabulary, different magic, and focus more strongly on the objectives and cause and effect.
Also, unlike other school assembly speakers who use magic, all of Cris’ magic contains a message so the students remember not only the trick, but the message that goes with it! Primary schools, as well as middle schools, will benefit from the messages in Cris’ memorable, amazing programs!
Most importantly, Cris has developed an amazing technique to settle the students down at the end of the assembly program to make it easy for the teachers to move the children from the assembly area back to the classrooms. NO OTHER ASSEMBLY PRESENTER does this…and teachers love it!
