Donald's School Show Options - 2017 / 2018

Donald Dunphy’s “Magic of Reading Show” (Educational Show)

The Magic of Reading Show is a fun 45-minute fun & educational literacy-themed magic show for grades K-6. The content of the message is really aimed at grades K-3, but the older students enjoy the show just as much as I positively reinforce information they should already know. My goals with this show are to encourage reading, to help students become eager about using the library, and to promote creative writing and other positive after-show classroom experiences. I talk about writing short stories, the difference between fiction and non-fiction, using the library, etc. I’m also an author, and talk about my books. I endorse literacy in a fun and memorable way by blending storytelling, audience participation, message, comedy, magic, colour, and fun. Librarians tell me about a boost in library use, increased reading, etc. This show is designed to help motivate your students to read more.


Donald Dunphy’s “Magic of Learning Show” (Educational Show)

The Magic of Learning Show can help reinforce the fun of learning to your grade K-6 students. The content of the message is really aimed at grades 3-6, but the younger students will enjoy the show just as much and will likely understand most of the ideas being shared. This 45-minute fun & educational learning-themed magic show uses magical object lessons to illustrate an easy-to-remember learning formula, consisting of 5 “P-Attitudes”: “Participation” (learning requires working together), “Patience” (learning requires time), “Perspiration” (learning requires hard work), “Pay Attention” (learning requires listening skills), and “Persistence” (if at first you don’t succeed – try, try again!) This show is designed to help motivate your students to be more enthusiastic towards the learning process.


Donald Dunphy’s Family Night Magic & Illusion Show (also known as the Platinum Package “Fun Magic & Illusion Show”)

A highlight for your school year, the Family Night Magic & Illusion Show (aka the Platinum Package “Fun Magic & Illusion Show”) is a 60-minute show, with lots of amazing magic and fun, clean comedy and audience participation, and also features two larger scale stage illusions. I’ll perform the Floating Child Illusion and the Amazing Shoe Trick, which are special highlights of the show. There's a trick with a 12 foot long magic wand, and photo opportunities after the show for each child to pose with Donald the Magician (parents can snap a photo with their smartphone). There are magic show souvenirs for sale, which is an extra way to make some money for your PAC (a percentage of the souvenir sales goes to your PAC).  There's also a free photo postcard for each child, which I'm happy to autograph after the show.  As a bonus, I'll also include a short promotional appearance show at a daytime assembly a couple of days before the evening show, to help increase your attendance & ticket sales. Everyone will enjoy a great evening of laughter, smiles, and amazement – plus, your school can raise $1000 or more for a special project with minimum effort, and no door-to-door selling. New shows are available for repeat customers.


Donald Dunphy’s Bronze, Silver, or Gold Package “Fun Magic Show”

The Bronze Package is my 30-minute magic show, with amazing magic and fun, comedy and audience participation, with no stage illusion. The Silver Package is my 45-minute magic show, with amazing magic and fun, comedy and audience participation, with no stage illusion. And the Gold Package is my 45-minute magic show, with amazing magic and fun, comedy and audience participation, and with one stage illusion (a larger scale trick, such as the Floating Child Illusion or the Amazing Shoe Trick).  My Fun Magic Shows are ideal for a variety of school events – assemblies, end of year celebrations, start of year celebrations, special events, fun fairs, picnics, etc.   Some schools have two of these shows at their fun fair event.  New shows are available for repeat customers.


Donald Dunphy’s “Strolling Balloon Twisting”

Perfect for festivals, carnivals, picnics, etc. Some customers have balloon twisting as strolling entertainment by itself, and some customers add on balloon twisting to their magic show booking (to create an event with variety). Strolling balloon twisting is different from a stand-up / stage show. I’ll create and give away fancy, colourful, and customized balloon creations (in one hour, about 100 souvenir balloon creations). All of the balloons create a festive atmosphere.


Donald Dunphy’s “Happy Holiday Magic Show” (Themed Shows)

The “Happy Holiday Magic Show” is an adaptation of my popular “Fun Magic Show” (Bronze, Silver, or Gold), but packed with Christmas-fun themed magic, so it will fit the holiday theme of your December event or assembly! I perform themed magic tricks featuring Christmas trees, candy canes, stockings, Santa, elves, snowmen, reindeer, etc.
