Birthday Party Venues
Top Places to host a Birthday Party Magic Show in and around Chicago
The most popular location for a Chicago area birthday party celebration is in the home. While the magician can perform in almost any room, the most common setting for an in-home performance is the living room or family room. All the magician needs is a wall (or fireplace, or TV) behind him and room for the children to sit on the floor. Adults can sit behind the kids, on chairs, couches, or even stand in the back of the room.
OTHER BIRTHDAY PARTY VENUES
Other great Chicago area venues in which to host your event include restaurants, private party rooms, banquet halls, park district facilities or community centers. Whatever the party spot, all the magician requires is a wall behind him (to ensure that no one is sitting behind him). It is best to have the kids seated up front, on the floor, or in chairs (not at tables). Adults can sit in chairs, behind the children or stand in the back of the room.
THE GREAT OUTDOORS?
If your goal is to ensure the best possible entertainment experience for your child's birthday, then consider bringing the children indoors for the magic show portion of the party. While the great outdoors is a great place for kids to run around and play, it is typically NOT the greatest place to have them sit and watch a magic show. Kids are easily distracted by anything from bees and other insects, to airplanes, to sun shining in their eyes. However, the magician can perform outdoors. To make an outdoor show the best that it can be, please have a shaded area large enough for the performer and audience, preferably with a hard surface for the magician to set up on, and a wall or fence behind him. Set up blankets or cushions on the ground for the children to sit on. Announce that the swimming pool, swing set, trampoline, bouncy house, etc., will be off limits during the magic show. And most importantly, have a plan B, to move the show inside in case of sudden rain.
Tips & Tricks to Make Your Birthday Party Magic Show a Success!
The following are recommendations, gleaned from years of experience, that will help make your child's birthday magic show the best possible.
Choose a performance space
The best space for a birthday magic show is a usually a living room or family room. The magician can perform in front of the TV or fireplace. It is best to have the kids seated up front, on the floor (not on the sides or behind the magician).
Eliminate distractions from performance area
Children are easily distracted. With this in mind, please keep the performance area free of all possible distractions for the duration of the magic show.
Any toys that cannot be removed from the performance area can be cover with sheets. Collect all hand-held toys (weapons, vehicles, electronic devices, magic wands, etc.) from children for the duration of the magic show. In addition to being distracting, the kids will need their hands free to participate.
NO FOOD, SNACKS or DRINKS
In addition to being a major distraction, messy hands and sticky finger will prevent kids from being able to help the magician during the show.
Keep pets in a separate room during the magic show, as they can be distracting.
NO NOISE MAKERS
Noise makers are great for New Year's Eve, but not for birthday party magic shows.
Allow time for late arrivals
Starting the magic show at least 30 minutes after the birthday party begins allows plenty of time for all guests to arrive. Or, you can also have the show at the end of the party.
