TRICK QUESTIONS

Frequently Asked Questions

Take the mystery out of booking entertainment. Below are a few of the most common questions we get asked.

How much does a magic show cost?2023-10-18T21:46:40+00:00

Pricing varies based on date, time, audience size, venue, and show type. The best way to receive a quote for your event is by filling out the form on our contact page with your event details. We will email you back with show options, availability, and pricing information.

Do you require a deposit? How can I pay?2023-10-18T10:02:35+00:00

Most events do not require a deposit.

Payment can be made on the day of the show by cash, cheque, or eTransfer. If you prefer you can pay in advance by credit card.

How should the audience be seated for the show?2023-10-18T22:22:18+00:00

At the time of booking, we will make suggestions on how to arrange seating for your event.

For children’s shows, we encourage kids to sit on the floor or ground near the performance area to facilitate easy interaction. Adults should be seated in chairs. For gymnasium shows, we recommend not using floor mats, as children tend to become more engaged and focused when seated directly on the floor.

Will I need to provide anything for the magic show?2023-10-18T22:11:57+00:00

Leif David is completely self-contained, meaning you don’t need to provide a thing. The only requirement is enough room to perform and an outlet to plug in the sound equipment.

For audiences of over 100 in a banquet environment, a stage or riser is ideal.

There should be a safe way for volunteers to get on and off the stage. 

For large festivals, corporate events, and theaters, we will work with your production company for any seutp.

 

What age groups are suitable for your shows?2023-10-18T22:01:34+00:00

We offer various show options depending on the age range and size of the audience. We offer children’s magic shows, family magic shows, adult magic shows, and close-up Mingling Magic.

What is your cancellation policy?2023-10-18T10:01:01+00:00

If you need to cancel you may do so at any time. Please let us know as soon as possible if your plans change by sending an email, text, or phone call. 

Do you perform outdoors?2023-10-18T22:09:12+00:00

We can host the show indoors or outdoors. If we host the show outdoors, the performance area should be flat and protected from the wind. A nearby power outlet will also be required.

For shows with young children, we recommend hosting the show indoors as there are fewer distractions.
