Here Are The Shows And Services Terry Magelssen Presents


What do you do to entertain your guests after an awesome meal?  This is one of Terry’s most requested services.  Regardless of the venue or size of audience, he has a version of “Wonder” that will fit perfectly. Let’s get them laughing, scratching their heads and participating in the mysteries! Whether it’s on stage for hundreds in a banquet hall, or the back room of a restaurant, Terry has crafted “Wonder” to be a hit in any situation. The big version brings curtains, sound system, lighting and all necessary props. The smaller version rolls right into the room and can be ready at the drop of a hat. Terry works with your venue to ensure the best possible show arrangements possible. The big show has a “Technical Rider” that helps your venue be ready for the arrival and set up of “Wonder”. Either way, your guests will participate in magic and illusions like “The Houdini Escape”, “The $100 Bill Challenge”, “The Levitation”, “Mind Power”, “The Guillotine” and a closing piece that is crafted JUST for your industry or occasion that will leave everyone uplifted and glad they came!


Entertaining guests during the cocktail hour, hospitality suite or reception is a memorable experience with the sleight-of-hand artistry of Terry Magelssen.  Using playing cards, pencils, cash, rubber bands, car keys and other borrowed items, Terry causes them to take on a magical life of their own. “Close-Up Magic” is often times one of the most powerful forms of magic there is. When magic happens just under the guest’s nose and sometimes in their own hands, it evokes screams and loud outbursts of surprise and laughter!  Quite often our clients will bring Terry in for the “Package Deal” when he breaks the ice during the reception hour with “close-up” magic, and then “Wonder” after dinner. It’s the best of both worlds and is the best value for your budget.


How do you stop people dead in their tracks in front of your booth to watch and listen about your product or service?  The same way you collect qualified leads when they come IN to your booth…. the magical talents of Terry Magelssen.

How would you like to draw people to your booth from across the hall like a bunch of starving zombies?  Eager to see and hear what is going on where the crowd is?  When you are wanting to draw attention to your booth, Terry’s visual illusions and customized script will gain more qualified leads than many other forms of booth attractions.

A lifelong student of marketing and sales, Terry Magelssen blends the captivating and humorous skills that only a magician can bring to the table along with your key features and benefits that adds up to increased numbers of people being exposed to your company.

Let’s face it, public speaking is one of human kind’s biggest fears.  So your option is to put your staff in the booth sitting in a chair or milling about HOPING someone will stop for a piece of candy!

Terry researches your business, studies your product and service and crafts a message that will be HEARD as well as SEEN by large groups at a time.  Slowly drawing people over to see what is going on, presenting sleight of hand magic in the viewer’s hands, gradually presenting larger sized magic until the crowd has been built to a fever’s pitch, then “BAM”…. your message is delivered in a precise and entertaining fashion. What’s more, qualified leads are invited in to visit with your sales staff to receive their “free magic trick” (we can’t tell you what it is, but EVERYONE will want one, and it has your logo and contact info on it!).  And as that crowd disperses, Terry starts the whole process over again, all day long!

Of all the options you have to entice guests to stop at your booth, very few can actually make people feel good about stopping by while hearing an intelligent delivery of your sales message.

“Sometimes…..  it just takes a magician”.

“STAGeFRiGHT: the THRILLusion Show”


Halloween is this nation’s 2nd favorite holiday.  With over 2 billion spent on celebrating this creepy time of year, there must be some fascination with it!  Magic, Illusion and Halloween seem to go together like Peanutbutter & Jelly.  So we have produced “StageFright” to fill the hunger for something fun and bizarre with plenty of twists and turns to raise the hair on the back of your neck.


“StageFright” comes in several different styles.  Sometimes it is presented as a “just for fun” event at company parties for the family, community events hosted by parks & rec and at school functions.  It features Terry and his bag of strange tricks that gets everyone involved with laughter and gasps of excitement over the appearance of a few spiders and snakes (Karl the Khyber Kobra actually does a card trick!).


Sometimes “StageFright” is presented on a more mature level when there are no children present.  Exploring the topics of telekenesis, mind reading and communicating with the spirit world are part of this presentation.  Of course some of it is presented tongue-in-cheek and many old wive’s tales and folklore is debunked during the journey.


But the most popular version of “StageFright” is the full evening “THRILLusion” fund raising event.  This 2-hour show is presented in 2 acts with an intermission.  The cast and crew of this show create a true chilling theatrical experience for the family audience.  With curtains, pro audio, moving lighting and special effects, your venue is transformed into the “Theatre of Mystery”.  Large stage illusions are presented that involve levitation, a guillotine and the recreation of one of Harry Houdini’s famous escapes.  There are moments that will have you laughing to tears and then catching yourself with your jaw hanging wide open experiencing pure wonder.  This G-Rated show is ideal for families .


Since the idea of this version is to raise money for your cause, we make it easy for you to do just that.  Many people settle for just selling tickets to this show, but we show you a dozen other ideas for making money with this show. You are provided with the “Project Guide” which is a 144 page manual that guides you step-by-step of how to make this the best fund raiser you have ever attempted.


It’s like being taken by the hand and led step-by-step, day-by-day of exactly what to do, how to do it and when.  This makes it very easy for you and your team to see the encouraging prgress that happens as you near show day!  The guide includes a CD and DVD with templates for posters, flyers, tickets, audience programs, raffles, contests and all the tools you will need to have a successful event.  They even include radio and TV commercials that can be played in house or given to local media.
