About the Show

Featuring a colorful Wizard character, the “Dan the Wizard Show” has amazing feats of magic and rib-tickling comedy. It has lots of audience participation with kids performing magic with the Wiz! There is a wide variety of magic for everyone to experience:

  • Magic with musical accompaniment
  • Laughs and giggles galore
  • A floating golden ball (Ghostbusters!)
  • An old magic book with an unexpected mystical surprise inside
  • The US flag (the Stars and Stripes) magically forms and transforms from thin air
  • The funny “World Famous Banana Trick” with audience participation (where do the bananas go?)
  • The hilarious “Acey, the Wonder Rabbit” puppet (who transforms into a mouse and a skunk during the course of the show)
  • Find the answer to the age-old question, “What does a wizard keep under his hat?” (You will be amazed at the answer!)
  • See the musical routine “Over the Rainbow” which thrills children and adults alike, with a magical, musical transformation of color climaxing with a magic rainbow over the heads of the audience!
  • Watch a special child become a magical hero when he or she performs “the oldest magic trick in the world” side by side with Dan the Wizard. In this comical routine, the child will pass solid steel through solid steel, and receive thunderous applause from the audience!
  • Balloon art (clever and intricate balloon sculptures) and much, much more

Running time for the show can be tailored to fit your event. The average running time is approximately 45 minutes.

Factors to Consider

  • This wonderful event is available for any child or family group, including schools, birthday parties, holiday parties, graduation parties, Blue & Gold banquets and corporate-sponsored events for kids (conventions, camps, hospitals)... at any indoor venue. (Sorry, this fabulous show cannot be performed outdoors, but Dan the Wizard can perform strolling magic with balloon art outdoors when needed.)
  • Dan the Wizard provides his own table, props & music. All you need is a room with a power outlet, and enough room for all the kids & adults to sit comfortably.
  • Planning a party with a Harry Potter™ theme? The Dan the Wizard Show is perfect for this theme, and, as the British would say, a “wizard” idea to thrill children.
  • Dan the Wizard adapts his performance to fit the age group, for children ranging from age 4 to age 11, and even works well for mixed ages and family audiences! This show is no longer advertised to the public, and is therefore very exclusive.
