Hi – if you don’t find the information you need on this page, click here to contact me and I will be happy to answer all your questions!
What happened to your birthday shows?!
Thanks for the many inquiries regarding birthday party entertainment! Due to a major change in my schedule, I am not currently booking birthday parties.
How much does it cost?
Shows range in price from $195-$350 depending on the show, the travel distance, and the time/day. Major discounts offered for multiple same-day performances. Contact Kipley for full details.
Can we do the show outdoors?
With apologies, no. Because of numerous challenging experiences, I am no longer booking outdoor shows.
How much space do you need?
I have performed in thousands of different venues and I have the equipment to make it work regardless of the space. Shows that use my full puppet stage (pictured below) require a space at least 10 feet wide and 8 feet deep.
Specialty shows for children 3 and younger use a smaller “pop up” stage which is ideal for classrooms, reading corners, and intimate spaces.
Do I need to provide anything for the show?
Convenient parking and access to an outlet. I bring everything I need for the show.
Besides the show, do you offer face painting or balloons?
How far will you travel to perform your shows?
Most of my shows are in Chicago and Northeastern Illinois, but I am willing to travel further if needed. Additional travel fees may apply.
Do you do strolling/walk around magic or puppetry?
How do I reserve a date/time?
When you are ready to book a date and time, I will e-mail you a letter of agreement which must be signed and returned to me to hold the date.
In some cases a deposit may be required. Deposits are paid by credit card via PayPal or other online payment service. If a deposit is required, a show is not considered booked until the deposit is received.
The balance is due on the day of the performance by cash or check. Credit cards are accepted with a 3% transaction fee.
