Are you having friends over for Halloween? You’d better have some entertainment prepared. With everyone dressed up and feeling jovial, a hired entertainer can take your Halloween party to a whole new level. A hired Halloween magician will ensure that your party is the most unforgettable one of the Halloween season. If you’re skeptical about what a magician will bring to the table, let me tell you. In this post, I’m going to tell you 8 of the amazing benefits that you’ll see when you hire a magician for your next Halloween party.
1. One of a Kind Entertainment
As a form of entertainment, magic is unlike anything else. The mystique mixed with the interactive nature of the performance is something that sticks with people for a long time. If you want your guests to be talking about your party from Halloween until New Year, you know what you have to do.
By having a professional magician mixing stage performance with smaller tricks while he/she floats around a room, you’re giving your guests something personal that other types of entertainment can’t provide.
2. Capture People’s Attention
If you’re trying to capture your guests’ attention at this party, magic is a no brainer. Sometimes it’s nice to break up the monotony of the average Halloween party. Sure, people are dressed up and having fun, but most parties go down the same path: eat, drink, converse, go home.
Throwing magic into the mix is jarring to the typical party dynamic. Instead of talking about politics or what’s going on in each other’s lives, a magician can provoke different kinds of feelings in party guests, which will change the dynamic significantly.
3. Less Entertaining for You
When you throw a party, you have to do a huge amount of work to prepare. From booking the entertainment and ordering/making the food to preparing the venue and making a guest list, you have a laundry list of important tasks to take care of.
By the time the party rolls around, you just want to relax and enjoy the fruits of your labour. Unfortunately, you’ll have people wanting to pull you aside and talk to you. After all, it is your party.
If you book a magician, however, they’ll take this social pressure off of you and place it on themselves. I can roam around the room and perform card tricks to smaller groups of people or if the party calls for it, can perform some more detailed illusions in front of everyone.
4. It Can Be Tailored for Different Groups
Every good magician should be able to tailor their act somewhat to suit the theme of your party, which is especially useful for a Halloween party. Magic and Halloween go hand in hand, so they won’t have too much extra work to do. Sit down with your magician ahead of the party and go over some of the finer details.
I may ask if there’s a good staging area, what the decor will be like, and the types of personalities that are coming to the party. So long as your partygoers are all in a jovial spirit, I shouldn’t have trouble getting people involved.
I’ll also able to vary my act for different groups, which is my way of making sure everyone at the party is individually entertained.
5. Flexible on Time
You can book a magician for an hour or the entire length of the party. It’s hard to tell if a magic show will go over with your party guests until you throw them into the fire. Many party planners like to keep me around for at least a few hours to entertain guests.
But, if you’re more interested in a 30-60 minute all-encompassing magic show, followed by a DJ, band, and other activities, I can do that as well. I know that it’s hard to get partygoers to sit still for long periods.
6. Magic Can Be Spooky
Halloween and magic jive really well together. A lot of the illusions make the unbelievable believable and can even be frightening when framed the right way. We can meet ahead of time to come up with a really good theme for my act. That way, you can scare the daylights out of your guests.
7. Bring People Together
One of the biggest virtues of magic is its ability to bring people together. Every party has people that don’t know each other in attendance and realistically, you’ll be the only person that knows everyone in the room. Often, entire parties will go by without different groups of people intermingling, but that’s not what a party should be about.
Magicians can take two people that barely know each other, involve them in an illusion, and they’ll be talking about it all night. Not many forms of entertainment can help forge new friendships, some of which can be long-lasting, but magic can.
8. Gives You Options
Finally, booking a magician for your Halloween party gives you options. If you let me freelance a little bit, you don’t have to make a rigid schedule for the party. I’m known for my creativity and have been lauded around the UK for my performance and personal touch.
When the pizzas are taking too long to arrive, I can perform to keep your guests entertained; if you decide you want to set up the karaoke machine early, I can take a back seat for a bit until called upon. It makes your life, as the party planner, easy and stress-free.
