Entertainment for all ages.
Birthday Party The program runs about 45 minutes.
If you have not seen him perform here is a brief description of what he does.
The children are the stars of my shows and perform magic better than he does.
For example, your child and HT might tear up a couple of paper napkins and
place the pieces in their hands. When they wave their magic wands, HT's napkin
is still in pieces but the napkin in your child's hand is all back together restored. Everyone claps for your child and they laugh at HT.
That's the way the show goes, the kids get all the applause and all the laughs are
on HT. The children make the magic happen as things appear and disappear
including a real live white bunny rabbit. The bunny is very friendly and the children
will love to pet him.
He has something for all ages. Older children love his "Sword-through-the-neck illusion" and your child is not shy it is a great photo opportunity. Nathra can pick a buddy if she does not want to do it. Younger children prefer his puppet Quacky the Duck. Adults that are present will be as amused as the children. There is plenty of real magic, music, and good old-fashioned family fun.
He often brings prizes to birthday parties like giant money, top hats, magic wands, and "HT eyeglasses" for all of the children. The children look fabulous for a group photograph!
