Hayden Childress is considered one of the top magicians in the United Federal blah blip yadayada. As you can guess, I am the person who writes, designs, and manages my website and all of my marketing materials, so I could pretty much write anything I wanted about myself. Let's just cut to the chase.
My name is Hayden Childress, but I have been performing under the stage name Haydini ever since I started performing professionally. I began working in restaurants at age 15, and have had the honor of performing for a number of corporate audiences, schools, universities, and have even developed a large enough fan base to host my own shows in the Charlotte area.

We hired Haydini for a retirement dinner. He exceeded our expectations and engaged the crowd during his entire performance. I would highly recommend him for your event or function.
Haydini visited our school yesterday for a fun-filled day of entertainment for middle school students. He amazed the 6th, 7th and 8th graders with the best magic, illusion and the expertise that a mentalist could only create. Our students were thrilled by the shows and their minds were blown by his seamless magic. This was one of the very BEST show that we've brought to our students yet. Thanks Haydini!
You're a WINNER!

Response from Hayden | Magician:
Thank you Principal Merritt for bringing me out to Sun Valley to perform for your students! I had a great time and they were all so energetic and attentive - just what I like to see in audiences!
It was a pleasure working with you, and I'm happy I was able to make the walk-a-thon just that much more enjoyable :).
Thank you for reaching out to me and I hope I see you again in the future!
Great Christmas party entertainment!!
Haydini is a wonderfully talented magician as well as an enthusiastic performer and a skillful craftsman. His original and dynamic routines dazzle audience members and draw applause without fail. The physicality and vivacity with which he performs is apparent; I was one of many who left the show astounded at the many feats he accomplished, all while retaining an air of professionalism. Haydini's act truly is rare magic well done and is an unforgettably energized show.
I've watched Haydini perform magic before and he definitely has a knack for it. If Haydini were a sandwich, he would be a panini, not only because it rhymes with his name, but because paninis are delightfuly warm, delicious, and full of good stuff. He's not only got magic tricks, but he executes them with flair and knows how to get a crowd's attention! I definitely would recommend him to anyone.
I am a huge Haydini fan!! It was the best show ever! And I want to go to any more future shows!
What to Expect
Imagine seeing a white staff glow like a lightsaber, and levitate/dance across the stage. Imagine seeing objects and people frozen in time in mid-air. Imagine a signed, borrowed dollar bill is set on fire, only to be found inside of a fruit an audience member is thinking of. Imagine seeing someone catching a moving paintball bullet through the air. Imagine that anything is possible - This show is for those who want to take a break from reality.
Most of the show involves members of the audience, and one lucky audience member will get to perform a trick for the rest of the room. There is a good bit of comedy involved in the show, but not so much that it dilutes the magic. The show also sounds about as good as it looks! Hayden uses professional equipment for each show to give the best viewing experience.
You should expect to hear loads of cheering, laughter, and jaw dropping silence throughout the show. Hayden is quick to setup, quick to tear down, and is always happy to speak to members of the audience before and after the show (he is a really personable guy!)
Hayden is an award-winning magician and TEDx speaker from Charlotte who specializes in the art of illusion. Since the age of 10, Hayden has worked his way up from busking the streets of uptown Charlotte to headlining venues nationwide for audiences of all sizes. He has performed for organizations such as Emory University and Bosch and has been gaining popularity for his original and fast-paced, interactive magic show.
