Watching A Night of Magic at Raffles with Children

[Media Invite]

"MaMi, close your eyes, we are going to perform... magic!" And when I opened my eyes, the children had changed into their school uniform.

Well, that is their so-called magic. When I told them that we were going to watch A Night of Magic at Raffles, they were very excited, perhaps they were thinking whether the Magic Master Joe Labero could change his clothes faster than they do!

Even though I have watched many magic performances on television, it was my very first time watching a live staged performance! What would the four-time Merlin Award Winner present to us?

How I wish I could learn from Mr Labero to change clothes in split seconds! It would be useful for our mad rush in the morning! When he smashed the audience's handphone, I was amazed when it was then found in a metal box hung from the ceiling! His guest performers and fire artistes also did a fantastic job to bring the performance to a greater height. The children were thrilled to catch some of the poker cards that Mr Labero threw at the end of the performance!

With a sense of humour as well as good interaction between the magician and the audience, I would say that the performance is nice as a family outing. The cigar used by the performer at the end of the show could serve as a teachable moment for the children.

Tips for bringing children to magic show:

  1. Before the performance, show them some video clips of magic shows, so that they can expect what they may see at the performance.
  2. Take the booster seats from the side of the theatre, so that the children can watch the performance without being blocked by the audience in front of them.
  3. The music is quite loud, so remind them to cover their ears if they are not comfortable.
  4. Some children may be scared, hold their hands during the show and assure them that it is a performance.
