"Sheila and I wanted to thank you again for doing such a great job at the wedding. Everyone loved your performances. We had adults who were torn between joining the wedding reception and following the kids for the rest of your show. They wanted to see more. You should have seen some of the kids’ eyes when I asked them later whether they liked the magic show. The only complication now is that some of the parents are having a hard time explaining that not all weddings have magic shows.

Bernie & Sheila
