THE MAGIC OF STEPHENBrenner Family MagicStephen is a master at magic, illusion, hypnosis and balloon sculpture.

Steve Balloons 1
“I was the quiet one in school,” Stephen reveals. “It wasn’t until high school that I got involved with plays. I took a speech class to force me out of my shyness. As a member of The Knights of Pythias, a mens charity organization, I volunteered to be an assistant to the magician. I was comic relief and when I would pull a string, my pants fell down! I got splashed with water and all that fun stuff. I went on my own after that and started performing when I was 28.”

Stephen is a former special needs teacher who has combined many of his talents to create a whole world of magic for the young of heart. His custom-created magic shows delight and astound audiences in and around New England. Some of his treasured moments have been his performances at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut and a 25 hour magic show he produced to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Stephen received The Independent Spirit Award from WLVI-TV 56 for work he has done in hospitals. He also worked with David Copperfield’s Project Magic.

You won’t believe your eyes when you see the Magic Stephen performs at your party. All of Stephen’s shows are filled with exciting magic, comedy and fun filled audience participation. Members of the audience are center stage and help perform the magic. Animals appear and disappear. There is also a zoo of animals.
Stephen Makes your Birthday Party an event.

The Birthday Child is always the first one up and the last one down. For bigger programs, Stephen has a state of the art sound system and a computer of thousands of songs to DJ at your party.

While the animals are being pet, Stephen tells where the animals are from, what they eat, some of their habits and more. Many different animals are available depending on the specific program. Some shows are general and have animals from several different categories.  Some shows are school visits where a class may be studying a specific animal classification.  Stephen has a lot of volunteers come up to help out to be part of the show. Not all the tricks have animals. Sometimes, you don’t know what to expect and he has tricks up his sleeve!
