Our prices are based on the number of performers you book and your proximity to Manhattan. Manhattan birthday parties start at $500.
The shows are 45 minutes long, but the timing can be adjusted according to your needs.
On the weekends, 11:00 am or earlier, or 3:00 pm or later. During the week, anytime during the day or early evening is fine.
Arnie will arrive about an hour before your party begins to set up. The show usually begins 15-30 minutes after the party starts to give your guests time to arrive. If you want to feed the children first, Arnie will still arrive 60 minutes before the party and begin the show after the kids finish eating. If you are having other activities, the showtime can be adjusted accordingly.
A minimum of 8 feet by 12 feet, which includes the show and the children sitting on the floor, but the more space the better. Arnie’s backdrop is adjustable, so the ceiling height doesn’t need to be specific.
The show needs to be set up against a wall or window, preferably opposite from the entrance to the room. If possible, it is also better if the show is being performed in a separate room from where the children are eating. Please provide 2-4 adult size chairs you don’t mind having equipment set on.
The age range is 3 – 12. Arnie tailors his shows according to the age of your child.
No eating or drinking during the show as the children actively participate and you’ll spend the show cleaning up spills. Please provide food and snacks before or after the show. All children 2 years old or younger must be supervised by a parent for their own safety.
We require a 50% deposit (by credit card or PayPal) when the show is booked. If you cancel the show, the deposit is nonrefundable but can be applied towards another show on a future date.
The balance is due on the day of the party. You may pay Arnie by check, cash or credit card.
Arnie firmly believes “The show must go on”! In the highly unlikely event that he were physically incapacitated, we will provide another fabulous magician to take his place.
