New Meaning…The Masked Magician
Do a Google search…for “masked magician”, I’m quite sure you won’t find me in the results. Yet there I was September 6th 2020, providing entertainment at a wedding reception at the Inn at Woodstock Hill in Connecticut. Wearing a Mask!
Of course, you know where this is going, and I don’t mean to “make light” of the global pandemic. But this is where we are. We still celebrate life’s important occasions; some weddings have been postponed and others go on with some changes.
The Bride was making preparations many months ago and I was contacted for availability…availability? Oh yes, at that time my calendar was empty, and I was happy to get on board.
As a vendor I always want my clients to be stress free when working with me, especially weddings. Look up stress and you’ll find a picture of a bride. It is by nature a beautiful day, with potential stress points laid out like landmines.
I was working with a lovely young woman, and I didn’t want to add any stress. Knowing the future was uncertain I let her know, that she should feel free to cancel my service at any time, no penalty and no explanations necessary. At the time of hire, no one had any idea of what size gathering would be permissible at an indoor facility months down the road.
So, we kept in touch as time passed, and we never needed to change anything.
I arrived and was supplied with a very nice mask/ face covering, as all the guests were.
My job was to entertain during the cocktail hour, and as usual I shared a special effect with the Bride and Groom, which they enjoyed while being surrounded by their guests.
The Cocktail period continued in the dining area and the guests enjoyed some hors d’oeuvres along with their cocktails…of course they were able to remove their masks at this time.
Honestly, I never thought I would/could entertain while wearing a face covering…I am so glad to say I was wrong. Everything proceeded well, the guests enjoyed the magic, and I had the opportunity to finish with a few more pieces for the Bride and Groom.
I know many magicians are testing the waters with “virtual entertainment” …That’s not for me.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for a performance by “The Masked Magician.”
