We offer magic camps, after school classes, Saturday or evening classes, and single workshops. For adults, we conduct workshops on how to use magic in your workplace. We have shows for kids or adults. We do strolling, close up magic, shows in front of everyone; and short, crowd-drawing, sidewalk shows (e.g. at a fair). Some of our performances weave in a message—e.g. educational programs for school assemblies or highlighting key points of a product for a sales meeting. Other times we just add laughter and fun—e.g. at picnics, schools, birthday parties, banquets, holiday parties, festivals, etc.

Our founder, Jeff Lefton, has been performing magic professionally since 1969. He has taught classes and workshops for many years.
