“The children did not take their eyes off of Charlie.  He totally pulled them in and made them feel his magic wasn’t possible without them.  The party was crazy until Charlie came.  He magically brought order to the chaos!!  The show made the parents glad they were invited too!  A lot of times birthdays are things we have to do.  This one was one we wanted to do.  The magic show joined the entire group of parts gets together – not just the children.  All the children that attended my daughter’s birthday party have requested that Charlie comes to their parties as well.  Best birthday party we have had or attended!” – Shelley Johnson

“It really was the best birthday party ever.  All ten first grade girls were smiling, laughing and completely mesmerized for the entire show.  The shy girls participated eagerly and came out of their shells to act as magician assistants.  The girls who sometimes struggle to sit still and stay focused were engaged for the whole show.  The adults saw tricks that we had never seen before.  Charlie Cadabra is in a class of his own.  He’s not just serving up a canned magic show like you can find someone else to do.  His show is dynamic, interactive, and memorable.  Thank you!” – Elena Stein
