"Hello. You have reached the office of Ray Franklyn at 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 an Englishman is 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 Café 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 able to provide just the right sort of Magical Entertainment that YOU require whether it be for a child's magical Birthday Party, a themed occasion, Nursing Home, Assisted Living or to assist in your Church Service. If you are interested in having myself Ray Franklyn at your event, then just contact me via the "Contact Me" page. I know what you are thinking and that is, "What is Magic Hands Promotions? That is simple, I use my hands to demonstrate my skills as a Magician. It is also the name that I was associated with back in the UK when I started an entertainment company for magicians.
"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, or, Nursing Home Week. Assisted Living Week. Then there is Thanksgiving and Christmas. Whatever it be, I can almost guarantee that I will be able design a show just for that occasion. One thing you can almost expect to see in the show is my Old English Sheepdog puppet (don't let him hear you call him that because he thinks that he is real). Just go to the "Contact Me" and give me the details and I 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.
