Pirate themed birthdays with Captain Corbin

I perform Pirate themed birthdays and all kinds of other types of magic shows. Sometimes I’m on a big stage at a theatre or festival and sometimes I’m performing magic on my barrel in the park. Every show I perform is family friendly and a lot of fun. I have been on stage at The Grand Theater in London Ontario and I’ve performed in Windsor Ontario at the Devonshire Mall.  I have truly enjoyed every performance. Some of my favourite shows however, have been at private birthday parties. I have a blast performing pirate themed birthdays. As Captain Corbin my pirate themed magic shows are engaging, entertaining and fun!

A Pirate themed birthday party is a very special event. A child’s birthday is remembered for a long time filled with picture perfect moments. During my show I fill the performance with memorable situations and photo opportunities. Each birthday is customized to be perfect and it all begins with the pre show communications.

Customizing pirate themed birthdays

Once the time and date of the event has been scheduled the customization begins. The show is pirate themed, however inside the show many more personalized effects are included. Some of the questions I ask include; what is the birthday boy’s favourite television shows, Games, Sports, hobbies, etc. What are your birthday party ideas and how can they be incorporated into the show. I ask about the child’s likes and dislikes and any other information that is important. After all those questions and more, I go to work designing the perfect pirate themed birthday magic show. Booking early is highly recommended for this very purpose! I love the challenge of last minute bookings, but the longer I have to work on the show the more personal it becomes.

On the day of the show I arrive in full costume very early. As Captain Corbin the magical pirate I don’t want the children to see me as anything other then the pirate. With pirate music playing out of a small speaker attached to my pirate sash I knock on the front door and announce my presence. After meeting the most important birthday child, I set up in the predetermined area and with my pirate music playing in the background I wait until all the guests have arrived to begin my pirate themed birthday.

The show lasts about 45min. and is full of family friendly fun and engaging magic. Every show is customized, no two shows are alike. Each is designed to be age appropriate for the birthday child and include his likes. Contact me for more details!

Ontario Pirate Magician March Break

Over the past 25 years I’ve been the ontario pirate magician performing magic for children. I’ve had the pleasure to “sail” to just about every major city and most of the minor ones as well. The Captain Corbin ontario pirate magician shows are full of family friendly fun and incredibly hilarious magic. I’ve crossed the province performing at libraries, schools, fairs, festivals and at many other events. This march break, I’ll be heading to a wide variety of events performing on almost a daily basis. Some of the public shows include performances at the chatham-kent libraries, the Peel art gallery and the Burlington public library. My Pirate magic shows are the best kind of interactive children’s entertainment. Pirate

Ontario pirate magician

My pirate magic shows last apox. 45minutes long, but that is just the show. Long before the show even begins I’m often out in the audience playing with the children. After the show is over, again I come out to interact with the audience. Stopping to meet and greet everyone and get some pictures. The show is customized for every performance, so every show is different. During March Break almost every one of my shows is different ranging from circus themed, to tropical pirate, to even a reading based magic show. Ontario pirate magician has a lot of different shows and themes that can be presented.

Although every show is different, they all have similarities as well. For example my shows are always family friendly, fun and very interactive. I like to have a show with the audience instead of at them. During some of my larger shows I may involved up to 10 children “onstage” with me. Even the children who do not come onstage will feel like a part of the show. The audience is very involved and take part in many decisions. A Captain Corbin magic show is more then just a magic show it’s a pirate adventure!

Magic pirate strolling close up magic show wandering pirate character Captain Corbin

A strolling magic show performance is a lot different from a magic and illusion show on stage. There is less work setting up the show, as with a strolling performance I’m ready as soon as I’m in costume. A stage show however is not better or worse then the strolling wandering magic show, it’s just different. A strolling magic show performance is perfect for events where there is a lot going on, the attendees are all over a wide area, there is no performance stage or many other reasons. Recently I performed my strolling pirate magic show in St. Thomas Ontario at the Joe thorton community centre arena.

A magic and illusion show may take over an hour to set up the show. preparing equipment, sound systems, curtains etc. A strolling performance is almost good to go as soon as I arrive. When I recently performed in St. Thomas I was able to walk right into the event and begin as soon as I marched in the doors. And I did march in. I marched in to pirate music! Before I arrived on sight I stopped nearby for lunch and was able to change into my pirate shirt. That allowed me to be able to quickly hop out of my vehicle and put on the accessories in the parking lot. My pirate sash, hat and baldric was all I needed. When I stroll around the event performing magic I like to have a table to travel with me to perform on. It’s not required, but it helps when I want to show more formal pieces of close up magic. After experimenting with a variety of smaller tables I decided authenticity counts and I now use a huge 60 gallon oak wine barrel on wheels! this thing is big and to see a pirate pushing around a huge barrel is quite a site. The barrel also has a door which allows me to fill it with my equipment and a small sound system. Something I would not be able to do with a smaller table. So in the parking lot of the Joe thorton community center I finish my costume, remove my barrel from the vehicle, turn on my sound system which plays nautical themed music and I push the unit up to and through the front doors making quite the entrance as a pirate with great background magic. After my grand entrance the performance begins and I wander around the room performing my incredible close up magic on top of my barrel and in the spectators hands. Strolling pirate magic makes a huge impression and creates fun memories that will last a very very long time!

A tropical pirate Christmas holiday magic show

This weekend I’ve been “sailing” all over North America with my tropical pirate themed Christmas magic show. What does a pirate do in the winter? Well, Santa may rest in the summer, but a pirate never rests. I’ve been performing my Christmas pirate shows all over the place. Magic shows with a pirate theme are a lot of fun at Christmas parties and special events. Why have a normal magician when you can liven up your employee holiday party with a bit of pirate magic fun? My holiday corporate pirate magic shows are full of interactive pirate magic and Christmas themed magic. My pirate magic sword turns into a candy cane, my first mate becomes a frozen snowman and at the end of the show instead of a magic Christmas tree, Captain Corbin puts out his Christmas barrel which magically fills with all his Christmas wishes, a long red and green garland of jewels, lots of root beer and of course gold, which he immediately throws out to the audience.

This past weekend I performed for childcan Canada in London Ontario.

The show for Childcan went very well. It was the first time they had a large magic show at their holiday party. I had performed for them at the Highland golf club in London Ontario last year as well, but at the time I only performed my strolling or table hopping magic entertaining the children. They loved it so much they had me back for the full magic show this past weekend. I must admit I think I surprised them with how awesome the show went. Upon arrival the first thing I always do is set up my music. At a Christmas party instead of pirate music for pre show warm up, I play some of the most popular Christmas classics to get everyone in the mood. This was the first surprise for the client. The music always adds a lot to an event and it’s often the last thing people think about. During my show the music switches to an instrumental nautical themed background noise and the performance begins. I remember the organizers ushering the children to me for the show, then wandering off. A few minutes after I began the show however, everything seemed to stop and all the adults began gathering around my audience to watch. That was another surprises as they did not expect my show would be interesting to them, but of course it always is. A professional magic show that is family friendly and interesting to all ages. At the end of the performance I received many positive comments and was immediately booked for next year. If you’ve never had a pirate magician at your holiday parties I would highly recommend it! Tons of fun, Ahoy!

Magic shows at birthday parties across Ontario

One of my great pleasures is traveling to all my pirate friends wherever they may be and performing Magic shows at birthday parties. A bit of birthday party magic for them on their special days. Due to travel costs I don’t often get to do this for birthdays outside of Ontario, but inside of Ontario I am kept busy sailing me four wheeled ship to all the major towns, cities and countrysides of this province to perform. Magic shows at birthday parties are a lot of fun.

Magic shows at birthday parties

A pirate themed Magic shows at birthday parties is special. As a result, The show has a much more personal feel. Very interactive I get the children involved in the show. Especially the birthday child and we have a pirate party that will be remembered for a long time after.

I have two different sized birthday parties to suit most needs. The Deluxe party has a lot of interaction. I often use 3-4 children during the show as assistants in the show. The Birthday child plays a very special role in the magic show finale, which is often a small illusion.

More information including my touring schedule can be found on my facebook page Captain Corbin

I like to surprise the birthday child with an illusion. However for the last 10 years or so I’ve left that choice up to the birthday child. It’s fun to give the birthday child an option of what illusion they would like. Some of my choices include making their head disappear, then passing a dozen swords through it, levitating the child in the air and sawing the child in half. Often the birthday child requests I saw their sister in half at the show!

There are lots of options for a custom performance as well. Early booking is highly recommended, not only to ensure availability but the sooner you book the more time I have to customize the birthday party magic show to be perfect to your event.
