Prom — one of the biggest nights in a teenager’s life promising fun, friendship and happiness. So why not add some magic into the mix?
Magic is probably one of the most exciting and energising forms of entertainment. For a night as magical as prom, hiring a close-up magician promises to be a worthwhile endeavour.
Let’s Get One Thing Clear Though…
A close-up magician for prom is very different than a magician one would hire for a kid’s party. Most close-up magicians that perform for private events such as proms do not perform for children’s parties. Rather, they’re more used to grown-up events such as corporate occasions, weddings and such. That’s where they get their experience from.
Hiring a Close-up Magician for Prom – What to Do
Your biggest asset in finding out whether a magician is worth hiring is social media.
Like me, most magicians will provide pictures and videos of their performances, however some do not. Look at the magician's portfolio before you hire them. If their acts are hard to find, take that as a solid indicator that your potential choice may not have enough experience to begin with.
What You Should Know
Although you may have seen someone performing close-up magic, there are things you should bear in mind about how a magician will work at your event:
Close-Up Magicians Do Not Stay in One Spot
During the event, the magician will walk around the different tables and perform magic as they go along. Their performance will include card tricks, objects appearing and disappearing and mind-reading. However…
…Do Not Expect a Magician to Perform the Same Tricks You See on TV
Television magic is very different to magic to a close up audience, and some tricks you see on TV will not work at a busy event or party. However, you may be treated to some amazing bespoke and original tricks, as well as seeing some classic tricks that are loved by all.
