Magical Message Lights Up Library Crowd

A full house greeted "Great Scott," also known as magician Scott Obermann, for a performance Thursday at the community room of the Wauwatosa Civic Center.

The show, sponsored by the Wauwatosa Public Library, was more than tricks. Obermann themed his show to the importance of reading, taking his rapt audience on a tour of the world while solving a mystery with clues concealed in books, an atlas and a globe.

Obermann wowed young and old alike with legerdemain, but the message was "I love to read!" – the magic words that for this performance replaced "abracadabra." 6/20/2011



Lake Country Magician Uses Skills to Raise Money for Students

Eighth grade students at Lake Country Christian Academy in Nashotah (a neighboring town west of Milwaukee) are planning their annual class trip to Washington DC in May. Each student must raise enough money to fund the airfare and other expenses involved in making the three day trip possible. In an effort to help students raise the needed funds, Great Scott, an area magician, will perform his amazingly fun comedy magic show for families on March 18th starting at 7:00pm.

“Parents and many of the students going on the trip are helping to organize this event and it should be a great show”, said Scott Obermann (aka Great Scott). “The trip is a great opportunity for students to see our country’s roots up close. That’s worth helping out with.”

The show itself is an hour of fun magic and ventriloquism followed by an ice cream social. Tickets are available in advance from the school office at W329 N4476 Lakeland Drive Nashotah, WI . Prices are $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under. Tickets will also be available at the door for $6 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under.

"I work hard and present hundreds of shows each year," said Scott, "and now I am truly honored to be recognized by the parents themselves as Milwaukee area's best party entertainer."

The summer library program at the McFarland public library ended with a splash and a wave on July 29. Young library goers and their families enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon topping off the summer library program, “Make a Splash!” for kids up to grade 5, and “Make Waves at the Library” for teens. 

The two-hour celebration included individual crafts, a group mural, a fishing game, and door prizes – no one left empty-handed!  There was also a special performance by magician and ventriloquist Scott Obermann, aka Great Scott.  His 45-minute show, “Goin’ Fiction, Get Hooked on Books!” entertained an appreciative audience of over 100 people with humor, magic tricks, puppetry, and a soundtrack of classic pop/rock tunes with new library lyrics.

Those attending the finale were welcomed at the entrance of the children’s library, where they could pick up free tickets to the magic show, enter a door prize drawing, and get vouchers to go fishing for prizes. 

In the crafts room, youngsters made bobbling sea creature crowns, moonjellies, and added their artwork to a three-panel ocean mural now on display in the children’s library floor-length picture windows.  Right outside the room was another craft station for making sea life wands – less hazardous than a trident, and much more colorful.

The SLP finale was sponsored by the Friends of McFarland Library and many wonderful local businesses.  Special thank-you’s go out to Jeanine Kroll, and Jim Hartman, for their contributions to the supply of door prizes, and to Ann Kleinhans, artistic consultant extraordinaire.

The program could not exist without our generous supporters and volunteers – especially the fabulous Youth Volunteers, working at the Children’s Help Desk and at library events throughout the summer.

Youth services librarian Geri Cupery hopes everyone who participated this summer has had a whale of a good time.
