"I wanted to again thank you for coming to Gifford to perform for the Kindergarten children. We really enjoyed the program!! You are awesome with the children and they talked about the show for the rest of the day!

Have a wonderful summer and we hope to see you again next year!!

     Sincerely, Cheryl Pulda

"Thank you for the two wonderful performances on our summer kick-off day. The children were literally shaking with laughter. ... The approximately 350 children and adults at each show greatly enjoyed your performances. A Day Care Assistant told me that you were great, "One of the best she has seen." Your program was so good because the kids are such a big part of it. They enjoyed playing the critic and participating in the jokes and tricks."

     Ann Kriegisch, Children's Services Librarian, Wauwatosa Library

"Laughter and bright smiling faces are the first thoughts that come to mind when I think of Scott's magic show. Although, Scott caters his magic shows to children, the parents and staff also watch in awe and amazement as he performs his magic. I have asked Scott to come to my day care (KinderCare) ... Each time, he has been flexible with my centers needs and with a time frame. I plan to have him back again in the summer months, and have his card on file for whatever child event may arise. I highly recommend Scott's Magic show to anyone with children."

Shows to choose from:

All Around Fun Party Show

Bring wonder and fun to your children with Great Scott's All Around Fun Party Show. Plenty of fun, lots of magic, an abundance of child interaction, appropriate child—centered music, stories, and a visit from one of the many fun—loving puppets that travel with Scott.


Bring the 2 year olds and the 12 year olds. Yes, that's quite a span in ages, but Scott's show has something for everyone. Think of it as a variety show for kids! Magic, music, puppets -- even ventriloquism. Children and adults will not just sit, but truly enjoy Scott's performance.


Children remember Scott and his monkey puppet Max or his friendly monster puppet Harry -- or any of the other characters that might come along for the show. You won't be disappointed. In fact once he performs, Scott is always invited back. You'll see. . . go ahead and give him a call. The rates are very reasonable for such a quality show.


Goofy Monster Magic Show

In the fall you can invite Scott to your daycare or preschool to entertain the wee ones with his Goofy Monster Magic show.
Nothing scary about this magic show though. Gentle approach to get kids involved and laughing and pointing and 'correcting' the magician. Kids don't get a chance to be in control of much in the preschool years. But when they can, children love to let you know what they can do. This magic show is designed to let the kids have fun and exercise their "I know something you don't" thinking. Goofy monsters or
ghosts will make their appearance (or disappearance), but sometimes the magic just goes wrong for Scott. And of course the kids will delight in helping this poor, misguided magician. Fun characters, music, stories, and magic.

Winter Wonder Fun Show

Then in the winter you can have the Winter Wonder Fun Show come to your preschool or day-care center. This show lasts 45-50 minutes and it is designed especially for preschool aged children. It features some of the imagery from winter like Frosty the snow man and Rudolph. We'll even start things off with an imaginary trip to the North Pole!

After a few months of indoor playtime, and more to come, everyone needs a break -- something different to look forward to. That's why Great Scott has integrated magic, music, puppets, and story telling into a wonder-filled show for preschool aged children. But the staff will enjoy it too. Audience participation, laughter, funny business, and some baffling magic are all part of the show, but the main ingredient in this show is fun.

Are you in charge operating a preschool in the Milwaukee Metro area or anywhere in Southeastern Wisonsin? Then you may want to give Great Scott a call. Imagine the children laughing and enjoying themselves. See them learning important lessons while having fun. Experience the wonder on a child’s face when the magic happens right before his eyes, or in her hands. Fun indeed.

Do you remember being a child? When you were young you would run and play and act . . .well, like a child. Do you remember watching Saturday morning cartoons? If not, just watch a child as he or she enjoys a funny cartoon. Kids giggle, kids laugh out loud! Why, because they love the physical nature of a cartoon. Children have special needs when it comes to entertainment. Kids enjoy playing or acting out their fantasies. A child will laugh at what seems to be some of the silliest things.

Great Scott is from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. He has a unique understanding about what it takes to entertain a child. At a daycare center or preschool, the children are usually 5 years and younger. For these children, everything seems to be magic. And yet, Great Scott (Scott Obermann) can amaze even them. Scott knows how to adjust his performance to suite the age of the children he is entertaining. Young children, especially, can be frightened by unusual things or people they don't know. Scott understands this. His approach to entertaining preschool children is to start off gentle. No flames shooting up, no loud music booming, no big magical TA DA! Merely a soft easing into the show. The children are caught up in wonderful adventure, or a story, and before they know it, the magic is happening, and the kids are quite involved in the show.

So, you can see that magic is only part of the entertainment package when it comes to preschool children. Stories, puppets, music, magic. They all play a role in the show. Scott has several puppet characters that work in his shows. Depending upon which children’s show you request for you daycare or preschool, you may meet Charlie the magic rabbit, Chauncey the big loveable sheepdog, or maybe even a box full of puppet mice. Young children are delighted by each of these. They will laugh and enjoy all the physical antics of these puppets. But of course the school staff will enjoy them as well. Some of the puppets have a very dry wit. So be ready to smile, laugh, and even groan at what is said. Puns abound.
