How much space do you need?
Very little. For my equipment and props I need about a 4 ‘ by 4 ‘ area. Usually, your living room is a perfect place for this. Other than that, an area right in front of my performing area for the children to sit and enjoy the show is all that is needed.
Do you need a table?
No, I bring my own.
Can you perform the show outdoors?
Yes I can providing the weather cooperates — however, this is Wisconsin; if it’s not snowing or raining, it just doesn’t feel right :). If the wind is blowing, that can be too much as some of my props are very light and will blow away. It’s always safer to have it indoors plus there will be less distractions. If you plan an outdoor party, you need to have an alternate indoor place for the party, just in case — I’m speaking from experience.
Can we serve the kids food, snacks, and beverages during your show?
I’d rather you didn’t, but it’s your party, and you can do whatever you want 🙂 — I recommend the serving of snacks after the performance, since my shows are heavily interactive with the audience, so we need hands free.
How much do you cost???
I offer two different entertainment packages for children’s birthday parties. For complete details, including pricing, simply call us at (608) 437-1572
Do you require a deposit?
For birthday parties, Not at all! You don’t pay until the day of your child’s birthday party. I accept cash, checks, PayPal, and all major credit cards. Check out the online payment center for more info. For corporate events, we do have a contract and require a deposit.
Is the show clean and age appropriate?
Absolutely! I specialize in entertaining children, and pride myself on a fun and clean show that’s appropriate for everyone.
When’s a good time to have you begin your show?
A good general rule of thumb is to have my show begin about a half hour after the party is to begin. This prevents distractions from late arriving guests. Depending on which package you go with, the show lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour.
I’m celebrating more than one child’s birthday, can you still entertain at our party?
Certainly! I have all of the birthday children as the stars of the show. Everything else is the same except we have a few more lucky participants!
Important: Can we hire you to entertain our children in one room while all of the adults hang out in another room?
Due to liability issues, I do require that all of the children be supervised at all times by at least one responsible adult (besides me). I simply can’t be held responsible for supervising them. This is to protect you, the children and myself.
Can we invite young infants and babies to the party?
Since it’s your party, you may do whatever you’d like. However, I do not recommend having children under the age of 3 present – balloon animals present a choking hazard for children under the age of three (and pets as well). Also,very young children can be distracting for the other birthday party guests, as can pets. Please keep your pets in a separate area (sorry Fluffy).
