“...Gleeful children cheered as each trick fooled them!...”
- Gail Baxter, Camosun College Staff
Entertainment to make your holiday party merry and bright. My “Happy Holiday Magic Show” presentation is a high-quality professional program suitable for Christmas parties and events.
The show itself is themed with a Christmas-fun theme, to give your party or event a more personalized feel. I'll perform tricks featuring Christmas trees, stockings, candy canes, snowmen, etc. I can even help your Santa "appear" (arrive) by magic at the end of the show!
A variety of programs are available, from short or longer shows for single appearance events, right up through multiple shows for longer events. I also offer strolling balloon twisting entertainment, and other add-on souvenirs to provide your complete entertainment solution. I also offer non-themed magic shows if that fits your party better.
Phone me today at 250-727-6505 - Victoria, British Columbia - to discuss full information, including availability, show options, and rates. The best way for me to help you out is for us to have a conversation on the phone.

'Christmas Cheers' for Donald Dunphy's Holiday Shows
“…you were a hit at our children’s Christmas party last month. The kids and parents both really enjoyed your magic show….”
“I just wanted to let you know that you were a hit at our children’s Christmas party last month. The kids and parents both really enjoyed your magic show. It was also nice of you to add the balloon animals for the children after your show. We appreciate that you came all the way up to Parksville from Victoria where you were performing earlier in the afternoon in order to accommodate our party. You were very professional, setting up and beginning your performance right on time. I enjoyed the fact that you have a great attention to detail so there is no question as to what is expected or how billing will be done etc. You spell everything out which made the whole experience absolutely hassle free!”- Julie Mackrow, Koers and Associates Engineering
“…Because of you, my job as the organizer was so much easier…”
“I would like to express my sincere thank you, appreciation and gratitude for the extremely wonderful Magic Show that you provided to the children, parents and volunteers of the Prince Edward Branch #91 Children’s Christmas Party. It was a busy, fun-filled day and it has been a long time since I have heard the children laugh so much at one of our events! You definitely captured their attention and their hearts. It takes a special kind of person to entertain children and to get them to want to participate in shows such as this without being scared or intimidated. Because of you, my job as the organizer was so much easier. Even the parents told me how much they enjoyed the show and to see the children having such a great time. One parent said that was the longest time she had ever seen her child stay put in one place – that in itself says kudos to you that you can keep the children’s attention for the entire show. I will certainly highly recommend to the Branch Executive that we hire you again for next year’s event. Once again, thank you for providing such a terrific show!!”
- Belinda LeBlanc, Langford Legion
“…A highlight for all of us on the committee was seeing and hearing the kids laughing a deep belly laugh…”
“I’m writing on behalf of our whole Holly Tree Festival team to express our thanks to you for a wonderful couple of shows at our recent event. It was a big risk for our team to switch from a marketplace model to an entertainment model for our school wide community event – but the risk was well worth it! We have heard a litany of compliments from our school community, and everyone mentioned the quality of your performance! Thank you for your professional manner and for the great way in which we witnessed your connection with the kids in the audience! A highlight for all of us on the committee was seeing and hearing the kids laughing a deep belly laugh. I’m sure over the course of the two shows you managed to entertain over 1000 people, no easy task, but one that you were well suited for. Anyway – thanks again for a great night that will not soon be forgotten.” - Kyla Ward, Willows Elementary School PAC
“…we would definitely hire his services again in the future…”
“We were very pleased with his performance. All the children were very amused throughout the entire act and we would definitely hire his services again in the future. We found Mr. Dunphy very pleasant to deal with and he delivered an act that was outstanding at a reasonable rate. We would not hesitate to recommend him.”
– Leanne Closson, Duncan Fire Department
“...many appreciative comments about your performances...”
“Thank you for the very entertaining magic shows you put on for the annual Employee Family Winter Snowcial event held on campus. Employees of the college sent me many appreciative comments about your performances and commented on the way your show was tailored to our family-oriented audience. Gleeful children cheered as each trick fooled them! I give you a high recommendation to other large organizations who want to provide great and wholesome family entertainment to employees and their families. Camosun is hopeful to welcome you back next year!”
- Gail Baxter, Camosun College Staff
“...a crowd pleaser...”
“…the show is such a crowd pleaser… always enjoyed by both the kids and their parents… We received several compliments from various staff members whose family thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas party, especially your show. The kids that got to participate as part of the act were thrilled to be involved; with lots of fun and laughs for everyone. We also appreciated you staying after the show and spending time with the kids… We know we can always count on you to provide a family oriented show that is fun for everyone who attends.”
- The R & R Committee, Pacific Forestry Centre
“...The ease of doing business with you made it a pleasure...”
“Everyone seemed to enjoy the magic and humour very much. The ease of doing business with you made it a pleasure. The pre-show materials were clear, informative and professional. I would not hesitate recommending you to anyone looking for quality entertainment for any function.”
- Line Brunet, Tom Harris Chevrolet Cadillac Ltd.
“...the perfect kick-off to the Christmas Season...”
“You were so conscientious and organized, I had nothing to worry about or do but sit back and enjoy. Both parents and children alike were amused if not mesmerized by your acts of magic as well as your sense of humour and wit. It was the perfect kick-off to the Christmas Season.”
- Dani Paiavlas, Times Colonist Social Club
