• Have the show on a level surface.
  • Every performance is arranged so the audience faces Magic Fred (like a theater).
  • For indoor events it is best to have 8 feet of space from the wall to the first row of guests.
  • If outside, the sun should be behind the children so they do not look into it.
  • Performances should not be in traffic zones like doorways and patios.
  • Reroute traffic flow by closing off areas, if needed.
  • Don’t tie balloons to chairs, tables or the foot of the stage because they obscure the view.
  • Distractions should be removed – food, pets, toys, balloons, music & games.
  • Magic Fred usually arrives 45 minutes early (or more). Allow 30 minutes to set-up the sound system, assemble tables and other props. Kids at a Party
  • No one should sit or stand beside the show including set-up time because of the space required to assemble things and the distraction they cause.
  • Videotaping or photography is welcomed.
  • A parking space and a hand carrying things are appreciated because I usually need help to load equipment (up to 6 trips).
  • Strolling magic should be considered when a stand-up show is not possible.
