Wiz Kid Marquise is learning how to build an
appearing flower trick. Part of the Wiz Kid training is
learning to make one's own props and magic tricks so that
each Wiz Kid will be self sufficient when he goes off on
his own as a performer.
Wiz Kid Marquise shows off his circus costume for his
Billy Blockhead act. He will be introducing this new
magic trick on this summer's shows. The trick is
described for magicians on The Magic Nook .
In the article, Marquise
describes how he built Billy Blockhead (with help
from Jim Gerrish and others).
Unicycle Awards Day!
Both Wiz Kids Qua-Fiki and Marquise were awarded
possession of the Unicycles they had worked so long to
master. Each of them made it completely around the track
at Watsessing Park in East Orange, which proved they were
Masters of the Unicycle at last, but it Marquise who
accomplished it first. Qua-Fiki then becamed determined
to catch up with his friend and was the second to make it
completely around the track. Frederick Goode, Director of
The Wiz Kids, then awarded each of them with brand new
Unicycles and Helmets.
As of today (June, 2008), Marquise is considered
First Unicyclist of this Wiz Kid Troupe, not just because
he mastered it first, but because he continues to be the
leader in trying new stunts and improving his unicycling
Wiz Kid Marquise joined in February of 2008,
inspired by watching his friend and neighbor Qua-Fiki
working out on a unicycle. Marquise soon overtook
Qua-Fiki and became the first Wiz Kid of this 2008 troupe
to master riding the unicycle.
