How much does the birthday magic show cost?
This is one of the most common birthday magic show questions people ask us. Because we have different birthday party entertainment packages and kids magic show performers, we need to find out more about your birthday party so I can suggest the most amazing kids birthday party entertainment for your child. (Our shows vary in price depending on your needs.)
For detailed info about how our Boston magicians and (all of MA as well), can help make your child's birthday amazing, simply fill out the online form on the birthday party entertainment page and you will receive instant info, (including prices and party packages description):
Is the kids magic show going to scare any of the children?
Definitely not! All of our kids magic is fun for kids all ages. (Even parents!) Not only is our job is to create a rocking exciting experience for your children, but also to help make your birthday party the most stress-free celebration that it can be. Moms wants to have fun too! You don't need to worry about whether the magician is going to be inappropriate for kids.
How far do you travel?
Since we are Boston area magicians, our base market area is New England. Primarily Southern NH, Central and North and South shore MA, Boston, and Northern Rhode Island. We have outstanding performers in all of New England.
Travel/mileage fees may apply in certain areas.
What if you're booked up? What do I do then?
There are many birthday party performers. Some are very good and others just don't have what it takes in working with kids.
Since myself and my business partner (Bonaparte), are some of the busiest birthday party entertainment performers around, it's very possible that we could already be booked and not available for the date and time that you need. However... our job is to make sure you have the very best possible entertainment for your child's party. Even if we are booked up, we have a list of excellent alternate birthday party magicians that we would recommend and do an fantastic job at your party.
How much space to you need?
This is another of our most popular birthday magic show questions.
I've done over 3000 kid's magic shows, so early on I learned to be flexible and adapt my show to most any environment. Most parents have us perform in the living room or family room. Approximately 6' by 9' is ideal; however I've performed in much smaller areas. We able to do this because our kids magic show is self contained. Personally, I come in with my table on wheels and my bunny, (secretly hidden) 🙂 and I'm all set to go. In fact it only takes me 15 minutes to set up.
Some of the invited kid's parents might show up for the show. Are they going to be bored?
Absolutely not! We have performed many times for family audiences as well as kid's parties. As long as we know ahead of time, We can adapt our show to INCLUDE the adults as well. Everyone will have great time. That's why when you contact us, we ask very specific birthday magic show questions about your birthday party so we can provide the most amazing and fun party for your guests. Of course when we know the party is going to be for a certain age group, we adapt the program accordingly. What makes a four year laugh like crazy, an ten year old will think is lame.
What do you wear?
Great question! I vary my outfit depending on the age group and the time of the year.
Generally I'll wear a festive black/red Hawaiian top with casual black pants and cool sneakers that matches my color scheme.
I also change outfits depending on the season. For example, during the busy Halloween season, I will wear an orange undershirt with a black top.
I use all sorts of crazy, zany magic wands in the magic show. No magic hat though. It's an outdated stereotype. Very few magicians these days wear one.
When your kids see me, they'll know it's going to be a fun birthday magic show. You don't need someone showing up in an unprofessional outfit or even dressed like a clown. Nothing against clowns, but many young children are afraid of them. Maybe it's the makeup. I don't know.
My child's birthday is in the winter. What happens if it snows and I have to cancel the party?
Living in New England, this is definitely a concern! If due to inclement weather, you have to cancel the party, you will be allowed to reschedule the magic show without any fees or penalties.
If the weather is nice, can you do the magic show outside?
This is another of the most common birthday magic show questions.
Yes we can do outdoor shows, but our preference is always inside. We want to do the absolute best possible show for you and your children. Indoor performances eliminate unpredictable weather, distraction noises, insects, etc., which can really negatively effect a show. Also having the performance inside creates a more structured 'theater' environment. Having an outdoor show will still be very good. However... an indoor show will ABSOLUTELY ROCK!
You mention how the birthday child becomes the 'star of the show'. This is great, however my child is very shy. How do you handle shy kids?
I totally understand what goes through the mind of a shy child because I was painfully shy growing up. I never force a child to be a helper in the magic show. What usually happens with shy kids is once they see and experience how much fun the show is and how everyone is having a great time, many times they do want to help out.
I have had shy kids come out of their shell during my birthday magic show, which is awesome!
On occasion I've had a few experiences where a shy birthday child decided not to be involved... they still had an amazing time.
I've heard horror stories of other parents who hired entertainment that was late or even didn't show up. What assurances do I have that this won't happen to me?
I understand how you feel. I mentioned that our goal is not only to do a great show, but to also make this the easiest and most stress free birthday party that you'll ever do. You don't need to stress over whether the magician is going to be there and on time. We are very professional in my business. Here is a summary of what happens when you hire us for your party:
- After we talk to each other on the phone or by email, and we decide that our birthday party entertainment would help make your kids party absolutely fun and amazing, We would then send out a letter of agreement to you by email. A $100.00 deposit is required, with the balance due on the day of the party in the form of check or cash. We even have an on-line credit card option if you prefer.
- The agreement contains all the important info about your child's birthday party. Date, time, location, type of party package, age group, etc. There is even a section on the agreement about rescheduling if you need to cancel the party. (Within certain time constraints.) This rarely happens, but if it does it’s usually because the birthday child is sick and the party needs to be rescheduled.
- About a week before your party, You receive a confirmation email so if there are any last minute changes we can make them. This also puts birthday party Moms at ease knowing that your magician will arrive and on time.
- A day or two before the party, If we haven't received an reply from the confirmation email, we call to check in, so you can relax and know that everything is just going to be great!
- The day of the party: Our performers arrive about 20-30 minutes ahead of the scheduled performance starting time to set up for your birthday party.
- We then deliver an awesome birthday magic show for your kids with tons of audience interaction for everyone and features your child the 'SUPER-STAR' of the show and you will have parents literally thanking you for providing such amazing birthday party entertainment.
