It’s a bird, it’s a plane…it’s Super-Eric!!!! Be amazed, amused, confounded and confused as Super-Eric, the Hero of Magic, soars into a library near you. With his quacky, wacky, side-kick waddling close at hand, wielding impressive magical powers, your attention they’ll command. Using mighty feats of telepathy, Bingo will read your mind as they demonstrate magical mysteries of every shape and kind. Extraordinary and engaging, they’re as charming as they are bizarre, spreading smiles and laughs to audiences young and old, near and far.
