High marks for Donald Dunphy's School Shows

“...Children were so excited and laughing & giggling throughout the evening...”
“Mr. Dunphy's show was simply wonderful and children had a ball. It was very entertaining. Children were so excited and laughing & giggling throughout the evening. Our show was sold out and it was very helpful to have his tips about how to have a successful fundraising show. Thank you once again for the great show.”
- Naoko Watanabe (PAC), Ferris Elementary School, Richmond, BC


“...The evening was a great event for families of all ages and for our PAC, it proved to be one of the largest fundraisers of the year!...”
“Our first Family Night Magic Show with Donald the Magician was a fantastic experience! The sneak peek preview during school hours allowed us to really set the stage for the big show and was key to our fundraising and sales. The night of the show, we packed our gymnasium with hundreds of people and Donald did not disappoint. The evening was a great event for families of all ages and for our PAC, it proved to be one of the largest fundraisers of the year!”
- Alicia Rempel (PAC), Lynn Fripps Elementary School, Langley, BC


“...unique, engaging and interactive...”
“Donald delivered on all his promises, presenting us with a truly magical evening at Frank Hobbs. The audience were all captivated with his unique, engaging and interactive tricks throughout the entire show. His innovative visual treats are a delight for all. We would not hesitate to recommend him for any elementary school setting.”
- Andrea Frost (PAC), Frank Hobbs Elementary School, Victoria, BC


“...Donald has a method of including young and old in his presentations.  He engages the audience with his magic acts and kids can be seen hands in the air wanting to be picked for the tricks...”
“I have had the opportunity and privilege to have had Mr. Donald Dunphy at my school the past two school years.  On both occasions Donald’s performance was the last hour of the day on the first Friday of school. Quite frankly this is becoming a tradition.
  Donald entertains kids as young as four years old and adults who are much older.  Our school is about 300 students (Kindergarten to Grade 7) and about 25 adults plus many parents who come in early especially to watch the show.  Donald has a method of including young and old in his presentations.  He engages the audience with his magic acts and kids can be seen hands in the air wanting to be picked for the tricks.
  The audience can be heard clapping throughout and at the end of the performance (which marks the end of the first week of school). Many kids and their parents hang around the gym getting autographs and just wanting to talk one on one with Donald.
  As this was our second year Donald had prepared a special show for my school so as not to repeat any tricks.  Donald even phoned me prior to the show to run a couple of tricks by me, wanting to make sure they were suitable for the children.  Donald and I have already looked at a date for the next school year.”
- Robbie Dhillon (Principal), Park Avenue Community School, Nanaimo, BC

 
“...Right from the beginning to end of our one hour show we were held captive by wonderfully entertaining acts and the kids were talking about the show for the rest of the afternoon...”
“Laughter, amazement and surprise were shared by our students, teachers and parents during the magic and illusions performed by Donald Dunphy.  Right from the beginning to end of our one hour show we were held captive by wonderfully entertaining acts and the kids were talking about the show for the rest of the afternoon.
 Our elementary school chose the Platinum Package and requested the substitution upgrade of the larger illusion opting for the appearing teacher instead, which received a roaring cheer from the audience.  The silly brand of comedy by Donald was particularly suited to primaries and intermediates, but it was evident that the grade 7’s were drawn into the show as well.  Therefore we found the material was age appropriate and held the interest of kids from Kindergarten to Grade 7.
 All in all, the show was a lot of fun for the students, staff and parents attending, providing a nice break, yet keeping especially the older students (and adults) on their toes trying to think of ‘how’d he do that?’  We would readily recommend the magic and illusion of Donald Dunphy to any group setting where children are involved.”
- Kevin Conley (PAC), Coal Tyee Elementary School, Nanaimo, BC

 
“...an enjoyable evening and a school event that will not soon be forgotten...”
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your fun and entertaining magic show you performed for us.
 It was our goal this year to provide the children and their families of our school a ‘magical family fun night’ completely paid for by our PAC, and you definitely allowed us to deliver that.  The children absolutely loved your showmanship and humour, especially the thought of cutting off the principal’s head and being up on stage with you!   
 Your professionalism, organization, and attention to every detail made it enjoyable on my end to plan the fundraiser.  You never left a question unanswered and felt that you were always available and open to communication.

 Thank you again for making this an enjoyable evening and a school event that will not soon be forgotten.  I would definitely refer you to others looking for an easy, fun, and successful fundraiser.  I hope to have the opportunity in the future to work with you again!”

- Dale Hall (PAC), French Creek Community School, Coombs, BC


   
“...It was particularly helpful that you connected your magic to the 5 ‘P-Attitudes’ as it was easy for the students to remember.  They still talk about it...”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your recent ‘Magic of Learning’ presentation to our school.

 We greatly appreciate the time and energy you put into the presentation.  Your information was clearly outlined, presented with sincerity and humour, and continually related to the wonder and fun of learning.  It was particularly helpful that you connected your magic to the 5 ‘P-Attitudes’ as it was easy for the students to remember.  They still talk about it.

 Booking the show and getting in touch with you was very easy and I thank you for that – especially during the summer!  I would highly recommend this show as kickoff to the school year as it really does motivate students to be enthusiastic towards learning!”

- Brittney Wallace (Vice-Principal), Blue Jay Elementary School, Abbotsford, BC


   

“…We have heard a litany of compliments from our school community…”

“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 November 30th 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 (PAC), Willows Elementary School, Victoria, BC

   
“...it was everything that we hoped it would be; a successful playground fundraiser, age appropriate for everyone, an entertaining event, and something that involved much less work for our PAC members to coordinate...”
“Last month our school hosted a fundraiser event with your ‘Family Night Magic & Illusion Show’.  We want to thank you for making the evening a fun and successful one, allowing us to raise $3000 in ticket sales!  We appreciated having you make the time to attend our school for a special assembly that allowed students to get excited about the show and promoted the event.

 Even though you reside on Vancouver Island and our school is in the Lower Mainland, we were easily able to organize and plan details with you, and everything came together accordingly.  Everyone in attendance had a great time, and special memories were made for the children who participated on stage during the show.

 Your magic show replaced our annual Carnival Night event, and it was everything that we hoped it would be; a successful playground fundraiser, age appropriate for everyone, an entertaining event, and something that involved much less work for our PAC members to coordinate.  You were extremely organized, professional, approachable, and easy to work with… all key things that made it easier for our PAC parents who volunteer their time to put together events like this.

 Thank you so much for working with our group to put together a memorable night for our school community, and we would recommend you to anyone interested in hosting a similar fundraiser event.”

- Kevin M’Lot (Principal, writing on behalf of the School PAC), Coast Meridian Elementary School, Surrey, BC
