Suggested schedule:

-magic show (best to begin 30 minutes after arrival time as some guests will show up late).

-serve food

-birthday cake 🎂 and ice cream 🍨.

When will I show up? 

I will arrive 30 minutes before showtime to set up. Please have parking available close to your event as I will bring equipment.

Where can you perform your show and what should we set up?

I can perform in your family room, basement, or anywhere the audience has comfortable seating available. 

Ideally, I set up in a 4x8 foot area with a wall to my back. For seating, it is nice for kids to sit on a designated rug, and good to have chairs in the back for adults. 

So there is no distraction during the show, it is good to put the show in a location where there is no thoroughfare such as a bathroom door. Also, toys and food should be cleared away for showtime. 

The show can be outdoors under the right weather conditions. If it is over 90 degrees, it would be best to have the show inside.
