"Hello. You have reached the office of Magic Hands Promotions. This is Ray Franklyn and how can I assist you? You would like to know where I am based. I live in New Jersey and most of my work is in Central to Southern New Jersey. You would like to know what is a Englishman doing in New Jersey well that is easy. I married a beautiful American lady and it only seemed right that once married we should live in the USA and we brought a house here in New Jersey. Prior to living in America I lived in England and that is where my love for magic started. For many years I was just doing Children's shows and gradually branched out to doing close up magic in London's top nightclubs and restaurants, That led me to meet a Wedding Event Organizer who got me working each weekend at London's Cafe Royal entertaining at Greek and Turkish weddings. Through contacts there I found myself entertaining at most of the Society Balls held in and around London. What is more important is that I am here and hopefully able to provide just the right sort of Magical Entertainment that you require whether it be for a child's birthday, a themed occasion or to assist in your Church Service. If you are interested in having a magician at your event then just contact me via the Contact Us page".
"Captain Ray Franklyn here to give you an hour of fun and entertainment BUT if you have been bad then I might just have you walk the plank. Children aged 3 to 103 have been made to walk the plank and I let you into a little secret and that is the sharks have not been fed and are waiting for their next victim, sorry I mean their next meal. So come with me into a fantasy land of make believe and we will have a magical time".
Is it a Birthday? Anniversary? Wedding or one of those fun days we celebrate throughout the year like Valentine's Day, St.Patrick's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas. Whatever it be Ray Franklyn can almost guarantee that he can design a show just for that occasion. One thing you can almost expect to see in the show is his Old English Sheepdog puppet ( don't let him hear you call him that because he thinks that he is real ). Just contact Ray and give him the details and he will keep you posted.
Sometimes when you are addressing the children you wonder if the message is getting through and are you holding their attention. Maybe that's where a different approach is needed and the use of a magical trick will hold their attention and yours and at the same time be illustrating the Truth of our Lord and Savior. There is nothing wrong in having some fun during our services or Bible Class as long as we are honoring the Lord in what we do. Please look on the Gospel Magic page for more details. Don't forget that we adults also at times need a fresh approach to how we present the Gospel and Ray would be happy to assist.
