Magician Donald Dunphy

Since the age of 10, professional magician Donald Dunphy has made the world of magic his home.  Donald's interest in magic began a little before then, when he won a magic kit in Cub Scouts, in a contest to find the largest maple leaf.  Little did he realize that this symbol of his country would lead to entertaining and enchanting over 4000 audiences across Canada, during the next 39 years.
 
Donald has become a favorite with children’s and family audiences because of his special ability to delight and entertain.  He skillfully blends the elements of magic, illusion, enthusiasm, comedy, storytelling, mystery, and audience involvement into quality presentations for family audiences of all shapes and sizes.  Donald is a two-time winner of the Bill Wansborough Trophy for the “Comedy Magician of the Year,” as voted by the audience at the Mirth and Magic Show at the Isabelle Reader Theatre, hosted by the Victoria Magic Circle.
 
One thing that is very unique about Donald, is that in addition to performing, he has a background working in childcares for 10 years.  During his time working in afterschool programs and summer daycamps (and additional years as a Sunday School volunteer), Donald honed his skills at managing groups of kids of various ages.  Donald loves working with kids, and it shows.
 
Donald performs his magic shows throughout Victoria, Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland, and into other parts of British Columbia and Alberta (and a few other provinces).  He has a variety of shows for schools, special events, churches, parties, malls, festivals, fundraisers, banquets, child care centres, etc.  Dunphy notes, “My favorite part of the job is seeing the joy and wonder on the audience’s faces, and hearing their laughter.   Although a very close second is helping the event organizer achieve their goal of an event filled with laughter, fun, and amazement.” Find out more information by calling Donald at 250-727-6505 to invite him to your event.
 

"We were absolutely impressed with his performance; all the children were mesmerized and happy to watch him do his act. What we found impressive was how the parents and my staff loved his show too. I had many positive comments from the parents and staff; and I asked them should I hire him again and they said; 'Yes he was wonderful, hilarious, his performance was clean and refreshing.' So I hired him immediately to perform at our next year's function."
- Cindy Desrochers, ECE/Owner, Kidz-R-Brite At the Farm/On Stillin (Preschool), Ladysmith, BC

Donald and Catherine Dunphy.
Donald and Catherine have been married since June 2012, and live in Victoria, BC, Canada. Catherine sometimes comes along to Donald's shows, to help as his "roadie" (when her work schedule allows).  She doesn't perform on stage with him, but she helps to set up and pack down the show.
