Just out of curiosity, what is the length of your normal/typical show?

My festival program averages 30-minutes tops.

All other programs, including birthday parties, are around 40-minutes.

I have a 30 minute show and a one hour show. The 30 minute show was really more to be an upsell for people who call to book me for balloon twisting, but I've started offering it by itself, too.

Most of my customers are offered an option of a 30 minute magic show or a 45 minute magic show.

For birthday parties, I usually offer some balloon twisting in addition to the magic show, to create a longer package option.

I also offer a 60 minute magic and illusion show for family nights / fundraisers at schools.

Most of my shows are 40 minutes. I can make them shorter or longer if the client desires. I do 9 tricks per Dan Harlan's show structure.

This is interesting to read, I was volunteered to do grand daughters birthday party and was wondering about how long to go for, these will be 5 to 6 year old girls mainly.

My kid's show runs 30-35 minutes. Mostly for the same reason that children's cartoons are 30 minutes - attention span. Theme parks keep their magic shows at 25 minutes, if the audience is seated on benches, and 45 to 50 minutes, if the audience is seated in individual seats, according to a study cited in "Straight Talk About Theme Park Magic," by Doug Anderson. I can often hold the attention of youngsters for 40 minutes, but find that 30-35 works well before fidgeting starts to show.

I just finished 9 library shows this past week for ages 4 and up. My show was 45 minutes long. Every child was glued to their seat the whole time. My birthday shows start at 35 minutes, and with add-on can go as long as 45 minutes. I've also performed 1 hour family Christmas themed and Halloween shows. However, My shows are not all magic, I also include puppets. I've seen children as young as 4 sit through a whole Disney movie.
