An Evening With Charlie Miller

Magic for the Civic Club

Magic for the Civic Club by Earl Reum

There are many shows to be had among the various luncheon, commercial and civic clubs found in all cities, but they don't really like "fun shows." They prefer something with a message.

This is all tied in very neatly with the patter which is so suitable and so right for the organization show. It can also be exactly timed, which is also a must with these shows.
