I had a fun, busy and crazy March Break 2016! I traveled all over Ontario performing my pirate themed magic shows for all kinds of audiences at Libraries, Private parties, restaurants and waterparks!
By the numbers I performed over 20 shows during the week! 10 libraries, 2 shows at the Waterpark, 6 restaurant appearances and two private shows. I drove over 2265 Km (the distance from my home to Walt Disney world in Florida) Performed for well over 1500 people, threw away over 8 gross of gold colored pirate coins and spent more on gas then I’m willing to tally up, but it was a blast to be sure!
I performed at the Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls ONairo on the first and last Saturday of the March Break. the shows were both well attended with over 15o people at each show (by my poor count) On the last Saturday I even stuck around and read one of my favorite pirate books to the children for story time. ( How I became a Pirate by Melinda Long) Well, I started to read that story anyway. I know the story by memory, so I picked up the book and started reciting it. After a few minites I realized the pictures were not matching up. Upon closer inspection I realized I had grabbed the second volume (Pirates don’t change diapers by Melinda Long) After a short bit of confusion I read that book WITH the children, as I don’t know that one by memory yet! It was quite funny.
I had fun at all the libraries! Some I performed at for the first time. Here is a short list;
Idea Exchange in Cambridge, Dutton On Library, Baden ON, library, Harriston ON library, Queens Square in Cambridge, St. Clements Library, Aboyne Library, Wellesley Library, New Dundee library
I’m looking forward to the next time I return to all the libraries! Maybe this summer.
As always, if you would like me to sail to your area just ask you local library when I’ll be appearing next!
