I have answered the most asked questions below. If your question is not here, then please feel free to contact me. I promise to get back to you right away!

How much does it cost?
I offer three different entertainment packages for children’s b-day parties. For complete details, including pricing, simply fill out this quick and easy form.
Do you need a table?
No, I bring my own cases that fold up into  tables.
Can we serve the kids food, snacks, and beverages during your show?
Well, it’s your home so you can do whatever you’d like… however, I do recommend serving treats & drinks before or after the show. It’s a HUGE distraction for the kids. Not only eating the snack but then the serving of it and cleaning up that takes place. At this age, they need the least amount of distractions as possible. So I HIGHLY recommend NOT serving goodies during the performance (also because it’s a show based on audience interaction and participation… I need their hands to be free…besides, it could turn messy).
Do you require a deposit?
Absolutely not! You don’t pay until the day of your child’s party. I accept cash, checks, PayPal, and all major credit cards. If it is important to you to make a deposit or pay in advance, just call me or email me to make arrangements.
When’s a good time to have you begin your show?
A good general rule of thumb is to have my show begin about a half hour after the party is to begin. This prevents distractions from late arriving guests. Depending on which package you go with, the show lasts anywhere from 30 minutes (White Ribbon Show) to 75 minutes (Blue ribbon show with lots of guests).
*Important: Can we hire you to entertain our children in one room while all of the adults hang out in another room?
Due to liability issues, I do require that all of the children be supervised at all times by at least one responsible adult (besides me). I simply can’t be held responsible for supervising them. This is to protect you, the children and myself, PLUS believe me, adults enjoy my show as much as the kids!
What age range is appropriate for your different packages?
Based on my many years of experience, I designed the White Ribbon Show for the younger crowd, ages 4-6 (mostly because of their shorter attention spans).  My Red Ribbon Show is appropriate for kids 6 and older (many of the tricks I even do in my adult shows!). The Blue Ribbon Show is most appropriate for ages 7 and up.  The magic tricks provided require some dexterity and focus that younger kids don’t typically possess. These are general guidelines.  I can tailor any show to fit your age group.  If you really only want a 30 minute show and you have older kids, I can tailor the show to be appropriate for that age group.
Do you accept tips?
I am providing a service. I am paid well for my services.  Tips are not expected, however if you think I have gone above and beyond your expectations, then tipping is very much appreciated.
How much space do you need?
That depends on the show. for my White Ribbon Shows I can get by in a very small area, However my Red Ribbon and Blue Ribbon Shows feature illusions that require more space.  I also have a 10 foot wide backdrop that makes the show look more magical (cannot be used outdoors). Usually, your living room is a perfect place for this. Other than that, an area right in front of my performing area for the children to sit and enjoy the show is all that is needed.
Can you perform the show outdoors?
Yes I can providing the weather is decent. My sound system is battery powered, so I don’t need electricity. My backdrop cannot be setup outdoors because it is affected by the slightest wind. Also, if the wind is blowing, that can be too much as some of my props are very light and will blow away. It’s always safer to have it indoors plus there will be less distractions.
When should I serve food and cake?
The best time to serve food and cake, is after the magic show. Especially if cake is served before the magic show, it can make it more difficult for kids to stay focused on the magic show.
Is the show clean and age appropriate?
Yes! I take pride in that my show is specifically geared towards children ages 4-8. Most magicians don’t have an age specific show. I specialize in entertaining children with clean and fun magic. The best part is that the adults have as much fun as the kids!
I’m celebrating more than one child’s birthday, can you still entertain at our party?
Yes! I then have all of the b-day children be the stars of the show. Everything else is the same except we have a few more lucky participants!
Do you know of any sources for birthday party goodies like plates, napkins, hats, etc.?
Yes! There is a great place called Birthday Express that gets nothing but rave revues from other moms. Check it out now!
Can we invite young infants and babies to the party?
Since it’s your party, you may do whatever you’d like. However, I do recommend NOT having children under the age of 3 present, only because they often are a distraction to the children and adults who are trying to enjoy the magic show. Same thing goes with your pets. Please keep your pets in a separate area (sorry Tinker Bell).
Is there anything else I should know?
I would really appreciate it if you could keep a parking space open for me close to the venue.  I carry quite a bit of equipment to all my shows and it is not easy to lug it long distances.
