Interactive Magician At Work In Anchorage, AK

How many guests can I invite to a Birthday Party and how much space do I need? Any number of guests are welcome. Most parties host 8 to 25 guests. Our self-contained show fits in a 4’x8’ performance area, and kids a best seated on the ground/floor.

How long is your presentation? The basic show is about an hour long. It can be shortened 20 minutes, but that is rare. Our Magic Wagon and Close Up presentations feature non-stop routines that can entertain for hours at events such as fairs, corporate events, banquets, etc.

Do you travel outside the Anchorage area? For simple shows and events, our range is from the MatSu Valley to Girdwood. For larger events or Tour dates, we travel throughout the State of Alaska and, by request, to the Lower 48. Please, ask for details.

What is the Magic Wagon? Our Magic Wagon is filled with tons of mysterious props for hours of close up/strolling magical entertainment. This is popular for lots of summer events with extended hours.

What do you offer schools? Edu-tainment (a combination of entertainment and education)! We can do classroom presentations, assembly programs, and even all school and family events. Many schools book a Tour Program which combines all three. Please, ask for more information.

Do you teach magic? We offer several camps during the summer and private lessons by request throughout the year. We have found that the best and most appreciative students are ages 9 and up.

Where can you perform your show? In your home or yard, parks, restaurants, theaters, auditoriums – virtually anywhere.

Are there any “extras” that you provide to make the event successful? Yes. For outdoor events, we can provide a portable sound system and tarps. We have the capability to cover our stage AND the audience with tarps and bench seating. For the bigger events (such as fairs and company picnics), we can even provide power via our portable generator. For Holidays, we can provide a larger sound system and music for the event.

How long have you been doing magic? We’ve been performing since 1988 – full time since 1998. We constantly update the show to keep things fresh and on the cutting edge.

Do I pay in advance? Not necessarily. We can accept cash or check on the day of the event.
