HOME | Magic Castle Page

Welcome to the world of Terry's magic. Here I am at age 3 in 1948, performing my first trick. (Balancing on the bannister in my uncle Jake's house.) Uncle Jake was pulling coins from behind my ears as far back as I can remember and letting me keep them. Since then I have been performing my brand of magic all over Eastern Canada and the United States. In 1984 I moved to Southern California and became a resident magician here in San Diego. I have since performed my magic at many events in San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura Counties.

Terry as a kid.
Gang in the Castle lobby with TerryWho would have thought that this little three year old kid would end up in Hollywood at the prestigious Magic Castle with some friends 64 years later?
Here you can see Susanna and me in the lobby. There is only one door in the lobby and that's the one you came in. Take a look at the owl on the shelf next to my right shoulder. If you walk up to the owl and say the magic works "Open Sesame" the bookcase behind us will open and let you into the Castle.Susanna Terry lobby
Here we are in the lobby with our friend Joanna, the blonde in the middle. Joanna always brings a few friends along with her. This is the way most of the young girls dress when coming to the Castle.

Magic for Children's Parties

I've been entertaining children at various types of parties since 1976. Magicians have always been in demand for all kinds of parties for as long as I can remember. I have found that children down to three years old can have a good time at a magic show. I try to get all the kids at the party to come up and help do a trick at least once. If it's a birthday party I make the birthday child the main helper. Most children want to come up to help and get bored quickly if ignored. At one Blue and Gold Cub Scout show, I had 32 people up on stage during a 45 minute performance. I remember doing a birthday party show for a group of 3 to 5 year old's. They were having so much fun that I didn't realize that my 45 minute show had stretched to an hour and fifteen minutes. I do no effects that a child might try to duplicate at home and injure themselves. I have heard of this happening because of what another magician did and thought was harmless. For a sample of what I can do for you just give me a call.

Here I am at my sister Bonnie's house in 1982. My daughter Brooke is holding her hands over her ears while her cousin Stacey is holding the balloon that I am about to pierce with a large needle.

Bar and Bat Mitzvah Magic

I've been entertaining kids and adults at my nieces and nephews Bar Mitzvah's for years. I always make it a special time for all. If I recall, I even did a few tricks for my friends at my own Bar Mitzvah. To make your party special, one that your friends will remember for a long time, call me and I can explain what I can do for you. Your friends will love you for a most enjoyable day.
