"Bob Conrad , of Conrad Productions, presented his wonderful rendition of "Abe
Lincoln in Person" at the Brentwood Public Library for the second time, once in
February 2006 and again this year February 2009. Bob is a man of many talents. He is
an excellent teacher, an entertainer, a ventriloquist, a magician and a very warm
person who captivates his audience with humor. There were 70 people, children and
parents who came to see Bob's Abe Lincoln show this year. Everyone enjoyed the
show immensely. Bob has performed many shows at Brentwood Public Library over
the last 4 years including "The American History Magic Show", Songs That Helped
Build America", "A Magical Approach to Geography", Davy Crockett's American
Frontier" and "A Visit with Thomas Alva Edison". We invite Bob Conrad back once or
twice a year, to do entertaining history productions. The parents appreciate Bob's
entertaining their kids while making history come alive for them. Bob performs a wide
variety of shows other than history related ones. I have him present history shows
because that is out venue in this department of our library. If you invite Bob to your
school or library, you will be happy you did. He is wonderful."
Adele Bennett, Youth history Librarian, Brentwood Public Library, Brentwood,NY

the various students during the day, many of them brought up things they enjoyed and
learned, even 2nd graders. I think everyone got a lot out of it.
Thanks for your flexibility on doing 2 shows as well; it worked out so nicely having

"I would like to thank you for coming to Johnson School and for your marvelous
performance as Abraham Lincoln. You were certainly Abraham Lincoln in the flesh!
Our students truly loved your performance and learned a great deal about the 16th
president of the Untied States. Mr. Conrad, you have the ability to get your points
across in the most palatable way. Our students, who ranged in age from 3 years to 11
years old represent the grade levels of preschool disabilities through fourth grades.
Every student was attentive and hung on every word and move that you made. What
a credit to your talents!
Thank you, once again for providing our students with such an educational and
entertaining program. We hope to have you back in the future."
Barry Rosenzweig, Principal, H.C. Johnson Elementary, Jackson ,NJ
"I wish to thank you for your wonderful performance last Friday on Abraham Lincoln
at our school. The children enjoyed your magic and puppet but most of all I feel they
received a better understanding of our 16th president. Your acting was very good and
having you here near President's Day made it very appropriate. Once again thank you
for a very educational assembly!"
