The Magic Castle for Your Events!

The Magic Castle, Hollywood, California
Recently at the Magic Castle, I had the pleasure to see a group of about 20 business people from some company enjoying a show in the Parlour of Prestidigitation.  They all wore a special button, sat together, and were clearly having a good time.  Afterward, I reflected about how much fun the Castle would be for some of my clients and their corporate events and parties.

I also had some ideas about how a business group could enhance their experience at the Castle.  For example, imagine team building exercises like a group scavenger hunt?  Or an observation & memory contest, ie. what's in each room?  Art & exhibits?  The names of the magicians and their signature effects?  Or possibly a problem solving contest, how's it done?  These informal games & quizzes can really add an extra element of fun.  They can be used to motivate & inspire your people, especially if there are some big prizes to be won.

The Magic Castle has many magician members who specialize in corporate magic entertainment, and they can be invited to entertain your employees & clients at outside events as well.  Check out the magiccastle.com and give them a call to discuss your next event.  The Castle team are dedicated to helping you create a memorable & fun event for your guests unlike anything else.

Raving Fans!

Professor of Wands

"Shawn exceeded our expectations and his performance was the highlight of my 10 year old daughter’s Harry Potter themed birthday party.  We had searched for a magician or entertainer who could incorporate our Harry Potter theme and could not find anyone in the valley who was willing to do this.  Shawn went out of his way to bring my daughter a Harry Potter magical cookie cake and incorporated various “spells” and wore a Hogwarts costume.  I would highly recommend Shawn Eric for your next event whether it’s an adult or children’s event.  He performs some amazing illusions and magic.”

Magic Castle Fun!


The W.C. Fields' Bar is one of my favorite places to work at the Magic Castle because the party atmosphere encourages the guests to respond as they would in most other real world venues.  This type of bar magic entertainment is a great attraction at resort and restaurant lounges (especially could be at A Different Pointe of View lounge at the Pointe at Tapatio in Phoenix, Arizona...hint, hint;). 


These photographs were taken by the Magic Castle's official photographer Brian Ochab.  Thank you Brian and thanks to this great audience!

The Eric Effect

Inspired by The Carbonaro Effect and Penn & Teller, imagine...
Your guests are gathering & the party is starting to heat up.  
The doorbell rings and a delivery guy shows up with a pizza.  
You invite him in, he notices a deck of playing cards, and offers to do a card trick.  Your guests of honor picks a card, shows it around, and shuffles it back in the deck.  The pizza guy offers a bet that he will find the card or you'll receive your pizza for free.  But after several tries, he can't find the card.  Finally, he ask what card was chosen, opens the pizza box, and SURPRISE!  
"Is that your card?  Yes!  Then that must be your pizza!"


Invite Shawn Eric to deliver a magic pizza and surprise 
(and feed) your guests at your next party.

How magic works...



Ready,
Set,
SURPRISE!

How refreshing to work a children's party in the midst of a holiday season!
Adults can be somewhat predictable and reserved in their responses.
These children were so much fun, a pure joy!
This is why I love magic, it awakens the child in all of us.
  Thanks to Kim, Bella & Miguel for inviting me and for these awesome photos. Also, thanks to the parents who gave their permission to post them.
