Dr. Kenneth P. Ladd is a retired minister of the United Methodist Church with a Ph. D. in Clinical Psychology. He has been a part-time professional magician for over 40 years and worked with youth for over 50 years.
Dr. Ladd and Company perform throughout Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan. He has performed for numerous Church functions, factory Christmas parties and picnics, Civic Clubs, Conventions and community Home Comings. Additionally he has performed for schools, county fairs, Church Camps, Vacation Bible Schools and fund-raisers.
With the increase in the number of youth being influenced to try drugs, alcohol and tobacco a series of pro-active programs have been developed as :THE MAGIC OF PREVENTION which deals with developing ones self-concept, decision making skills and how to say "NO" to drug use in a positive way using magic to teach these skills. These programs grew out of Dr. Ladd's vast experience as a chaplain in a correctional institution for young male offenders and his years both as a pastor and professional counselor in private practice.
Dr. Ladd and Company do large stage illusions such as seen on TV as well as smaller close-up illusions. Audience participation is a large part of every performance as children, youth and adults are invited to the stage.
