Mystified by magic

 

 

Gabrielson incorporated humor into his show, which resonates well with this group of students. Madelyn Trippe was elated when Gabrielson called her up on stage. She watches him perform his tricks with a big grin on her face. It was also hat day at Sunrise River School. Here, Sarah Ryan shows off her panda hat. Gabrielson has his young volunteer pick another student out of the crowd to be part of the show. It seems as though Zachary Kabes and some of his classmates were going with the Olympic theme with their hats. Abby Thurmer was a willing participant in this magic trick.  Gabrielson asked “Grandma” Sue Yelle to pick an animal cracker out of a box and hold it in her hands so he couldn’t see it. He would then draw the animal on a sheet of paper. Gabrielson used a mind trick infused with some humor to get her to tell him what animal she had in her hand so he could draw it. Jayden Pinault lets out a hearty laugh during the show. Gabrielson made this stuffed animal behave as though it were alive. Madelyn Trippe was a fan of the tricks that involved balloons. Madelyn Trippe made sure her shoes were tied before volunteering to help the magician with his show. Gabrielson tore the paper to shreds. And then he somehow restored it to its original state.

Tim Gabrielson, a magician with more than 20 years of experience in the sleight-of-hand field, entertained students at Sunrise River Elementary School Thursday. He made a bowling ball appear seemingly out of nowhere, coaxed a stuffed animal to shake like it was real and he tore a newspaper to shreds then restored it to its original state. He also brought a few young volunteers up on the stage to help with the show.

The event proved popular with students and staff; the kids were wide-eyed at magic Gabrielson performed.
