How much does it cost? This is sometimes the first question that a parent asks me. And I get it, really I do! After all, I’m a parent and I know that almost everything having to do with children can be expensive. American Girl Doll, oh yeah we’ve done that. Lessons for any number of things that our daughter soon tired of…check. Back to school clothes! Most of us as parents have been through this stuff year in and year out. We do it because we love our children and we want them to be happy!
Sorry, went off on a parenting tangent there for a minute. Back to the topic at hand, how much does it cost? I wish there was an easy answer but I can try and give you a framework. I am certainly not the cheapest magician in the Chicago area. I really don’t want to be. My goal is to be the best Children’s Magician that I can be. So here goes, my cheapest show price is $175 and is available within a reasonable distance from my home. That is for a 30 minute magic show packed with laughs, wonder and magic! I wish I could give you a price on other options such as balloons or having the birthday child participate in a levitation illusion but there are too many variables such as where is the party located? How many children are in attendance? What are the performance conditions, room size, stairs, etc.
So basically my 30 minute show costs about as much as a trip to the American Girl Store. But one thing I know, long after that doll has been cast aside the memory of their magical birthday celebration will remain!
