Frequently Asked Questions
Do you perform at children's birthday parties?
I do! For kids' parties I perform a 50 minute, highly interactive magic show, and the kids get to help with every trick. The birthday child is always the star!
Can you perform a show outside?
Performing outside is usually not a problem, as long as the weather is nice. Unfortunately if it is raining, windy, or humid I would not be able to perform outside, as the bad weather could damage our props. Also, our magic backdrop is only available for indoor performances.
Do you just do kids' parties?
I love performing for kids, however over the past 2 years I have begun performing for adult gatherings and corporate events much more frequently. For more information about my adult/corporate magic appearances, visit http://www.chrisherrick.co.
How long are your performances?
Depending on the age of the guests, my shows last between 45-50 minutes long. For shows with guests ages 10 and older, the show might run 50-55 minutes long. If the party is for kids ages 4-9, then the show might run around 45 minutes long.
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually arrive 45-50 minutes before the show is scheduled to start, and I would love to spend the first 15 minutes getting to know your family & showing the kids a few "sneak peak" tricks! After that, I will need at least 25 minutes without the children around to set up. For shows where I bring my backdrop, 30 minutes might be needed to set up.
Do you have any public events where I can see you perform?
Yes! I perform table magic during many of the Lowell Spinners games, and I also perform a weekly magic show for all the guests staying at Huttopia White Mountains (in Albany, NH) every Friday night from June 28 - August 30. I will be performing at Huttopia's Southern Maine location every saturday night from July 6 - August 31. I will post any other public shows and events on my Facebook page.
