Marissa Latshaw, Gig Masters Marketing VP
I perform Close Up Table / Walk Around Magic, Kids & Family Shows as well as Stage Shows. I'm also a Balloonist, a Children's Activities Specialist, a DJ/MC, a Face Painter and a Party Planner.
DIDI MAXX THE MAGICIAN
I combine fun and humor with the wonder of magic to keep the atmosphere light & upbeat. Most of my magic includes audience participation as people love to get up close and be in on the magic. Many of my routines are designed so that the magic happens right "in the hands" of my audience volunteers for that shot of amazement! My magic shows include music to complement the magic for a full experience.
The content of my shows varies with the audience so that everyone can enjoy the show. I can gear the show toward a particular age group / gender or perform magic that's appropriate for all ages! With children, I am especially animated and present magic that is exciting and contains the element of surprise to fully engage them! Some of the special options include a magical Levitation Illusion of one of the children, a Confetti Cascade produced by one of the volunteers or Sawing one of my volunteers in Half!
YOUNG CHILDREN'S SHOWS
FILLED WITH COLORFUL MAGIC DISPLAYS, AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION, LIVELY MUSIC AND AN EMPHASIS ON FUN!!!
With children, I am especially animated and present magic that is exciting and contains the element of surprise to fully engage them! This show includes colorful production routines and classics like sponge balls and the vanishing hanky, comedy rope and silk magic, magic bubbles, magic balloons and a magical levitation illusion of a child volunteer in the show's finale!
FAMILY MAGIC SHOW
A FUN AND UPBEAT SHOW CONSISTING OF MAGIC ROUTINES LIKE THOSE IN HER CHILDREN'S SHOW ALONG WITH COMEDY AND CLOSE UP MAGICAL SURPRISES FOR THE ADULTS!
I've incorporated my mastery of sleight of hand and misdirection to build a show full of audience participation that both captures a child's imagination and appeals to the intelligence of an adult. I include some fun mind blowing Mentalism (predictions) and Escapes which are more suitable routines for older children and adults as well as Close Up and Card Magic. For thrills, I can include my Jigsaw Through Body Illusion that features a brave volunteer from the audience.
MAGIC AND WONDER (Ages 6 & Up)
This show is geared to the larger audiences and stage performance. It contains comedy, classical magic, escapes, psychic mentalism and small illusions that defy logic like "Liquid Glass" and "The Jigsaw Through Body."
MAGICAL SORCERESS / CRYSTAL GYPSY WITCH (Ages 6 & Up)
Perfect for Halloween with Magic Potions & Mystical Ceremonies!
