Space Trek is a hilarious hair-raising adventure that combines magic, music, puppets, and storytelling in a unique and unforgettable way that will keep every child fully engaged from start to finish.

Together, with his crazy sidekick Tucker Turtle, they embark on an amazing escapade using books and stories that lead to tons of learning and fun in the library.

“Steve provides a quality, SOL linked program that stresses the importance of books and reading. Steve is an incredible magician! The students and the teachers were amazed. I have never had everyone thank me for booking a program as they did with this one. Everyone asked when he was coming back!”
Julie Tanner, Stump Elementary, Stuarts Draft, VA
“Steve Somers is a professional. His programs are educational and entertaining. He can handle any crowd and all ages. His programs are fresh and imaginative, never a repetition of others. He keeps audiences involved from start to finish! Our very favorite performer of all!”

“Steve Somers is an extremely qualified entertainer who knows how to get across important messages to children in ways they enjoy and remember. His extensive background in education makes him an ideal performer for school programs, and I highly recommend him.”

Audience members will discover cryptic messages (Dewey Decimal numbers) that can help them turn their dreams into reality.

By working together, the audience will discover, Hopper the Magic rabbit (a live bunny), and his Big Dream! – He will magically appear in a flash and cause every jaw to drop in wonder!

Every Space Trek show includes:

  • professional theatrical lighting and backdrop system (where space & time permit)
  • a professional PA system with 18 different music trax to enhance the show
  • the magical appearance of a live rabbit name “Hopper”
  • an attempt to make someone or something magically float using “anti-gravity” molecules
  • a red carpet photo op session for attendees (where space & time permit)
  • a promise to motivate kids to read books while increasing the circulation of library books
  • a free bookmark for everyone attending
  • and much more!


Incorporates Great Books

Space Trek creatively combines learning and fun resulting in magical edutainment!  It starts with a search for Hopper’s big dream.  Along the way, students learn about people who lived their dreams and how books can be a stepping stone for discovering and living any dream!


Dancing with the Scarves

The theme of the Space Treck show is built on the premise that everyone has a dream without limits.  And no matter who you are, reading books can help you succeed in living your dream. The show includes many volunteers, but two of them actually get to Dance with the Scarves!  This is definitely a great Photo op!
