About the Show

A Unique Family-Friendly Entertainment Experience Based Upon the Traditional Traveling Medicine Shows from the Turn-of-the-Century, 1870- 1930, a major renaissance period in the theatre and arts in America.

Unlike any other show you will experience, Dr. Solar’s show is the Premier Traveling Medicine Show On the West Coast; a truly Americana presentation, in the format that took varieties-style entertainment and worldly wonders to Small-town, USA.

The Doctor comes from times past, when magic was in it’s Golden Years, vaudeville in it’s heyday, and while those theatres flourished, Hollywood was abuzz with an emerging technological cultural phenomenon (motion pictures). His show is reminiscent of that era. He seems stuck in the 1920’s, a time when Comedy was King, and always suitable for mixed company and family faire.

From the moment the Doctor cranks up the “orchestra”, you will be dazzled by astonishing feats of mentalism, magic, animal productions, all animated with playful, comedic physical antics. The Doctor brings his show straight to your local, be it a school, a library, a fair, a corporate shin-dig or that special person’s birthday celebration.

Yes, this doctor still makes house calls, and you don't need an HMO to afford it, very family-friendly rates.

About Dr. Solar

Dr. Solar, aka Terry Robinson, was a child prodigy of ventriloquism. He received his first dummy; then popular, Danny O’Day at age seven. He has worked with his current knee-pal, Ducky O’Neil since age nine. With Ducky they became a major fund raising force for the Y.M.C.A., that carried well into adulthood. He turned professional at age ten performing for birthday parties and other fundraisers, and then included magic into his act.

The Good Doctor has been well received before tens of thousands of people including service clubs, corporate affairs, pre-schools, elementary schools, libraries, fairs, and countless birthday celebrations. He has had appearances on such programs as Good Morning America, The Today Show, The Daily Show, The Tonight Show, United Airlines, News in the Sky, and on the Discovery Channel.

He is a thirty year pioneer in solar living having built his 100% passive solar home in 1979. The first solar panels for residential use were sold in 1978 by REAL GOODS, then in Willits, Ca., the solar capitol of World. By the mid nineties only 500 solar homes existed in California. In 1983, not content to merely offer up his home for solar tours, the Good Doctor decided it was time to spread his eco-measage through his entertaining Solar Road Show.
