ALL OF MY MAGIC ACTS are self contained without sets, lighting cues, or sound requirements. I use audience participation in every effect, so there are laughing spectators who pick a card, shuffle the deck, and examine the props. I can work in residences, offices, hotels, backyards, and be flexible. I treat people politely onstage and thank them for their help with a big round of applause, so they'll never be embarrassed.
When I perform as The Magic Santa Claus, I can bring your family's gifts as Santa at $125 plus $1 a mile. I have a beautiful red tuxedo cut suit with arctic fox fur lapels, cuffs, and details. 25 minute show plus all Santa Services is $200. PLEASE CALL EARLY!!
It was fun and exciting. All kids were happy to see Santa. Magic and having Santa read a Christmas Story was amazing. A Christmas I will never forget.
Response from Magic Santa Claus:
Thank you so much, and Happy Holidays!
After arriving 45 min late his first words to the group which included 7 little children was that his day job was a college professor. Not cool when he's supposed to be Santa!
My review...He should not quit his day job!
Response from Magic Santa Claus:
My electric car refused to work so I got a new rental car that afternoon. I assumed this would be set up but I had to call onstar to install the phone and then the navigator so I could find her. This took over half an hour and delayed me, as did heavy traffic. I called her 4 times to apologize and update her on my progress. The kids and grandpa liked the show; I offered to wait and suggested they begin dinner and have me perform afterwards, but she insisted. At her request I shortened the Magic show and went on to gifts and photos which went well. I apologized for the unavoidable delays several times and she was calm and gracious about it. I think this low review on every category is malicious. When she looks at the happy kids' photos of the show and gifts, she'll be happy too.
Magic Santa is amazing and we would definitely recommend him!! Very professional and was very flexible with our requests as we didn't have all details hammered out until last minute. He was patient with us and very kind. We had a very large group and he handled it with ease! The children loved him!
Loch David Crane Jr. has many persona but around the holidays you have to love Magic Santa Claus. Loch brings his unique interpretation of the jolly elf to audiences large and small. This act is especially effective for kids, although he enchants the adults as well. His costume is one of the most beautiful you will ever see, and his performance will bring the magic of the holidays to your event.
For the purists in the crowd, this Magic Santa is no illusion. From his real hair and beard, to the toes of his boots, nothing fake about this Santa. However, he has amused my family with good cheer and fun magic tricks!
I've seen Magic Santa Claus perform several times, in both public (Old Town San Diego, USO) and private settings. He's a good family entertainer and really gets the kids in his audience involved in doing the tricks. They love his jokes and antics.

What to Expect
I provide live Magic Shows close up and on stage. I use audience volunteers to pick a card, examine the ropes, hold the napkins, etc. and can use volunteers or work from a list of your VIPs. Birthday person of any age can help in every effect! I have 20, 30, and 45 minute stage shows, a Reading Reward Assembly for schools, and work close up at brunches and banquets with a repeating 15 minute show performed at various places around the venue. I also tutor students of any level. You may see me at <www.MagicSantaClaus.com> and performing on Youtube!
Please see my detailed web site or my 160 videos on Youtube!! I perform clean comedy Magic shows for residence, office, convention, hotel, or night club. I perform close up Magic right in front of your eyes, and unbelievable stage illusions using audience volunteers. I have 50 years' experience and perform in a number of characters during the year (Bafflin' Bill Cody western, Merlin-ye-Mage medieval mind reading, Uncle Sam the Unique Sorcerer, Mistoffelees the Magical Cat).
Then in November and December I perform as The Magic Santa Claus, and grow a real beard for the act. I perform 15, 25, and 45 minute shows, including a Reading Reward Assembly for schools. I also perform repeating close up shows at barbecues, banquets, and residences on an hourly basis, up to four hours--in any costume.
I perform using audience volunteers, birthday person, or other VIPs from a list. In Reading Reward Assemblies I use a list of great readers, and the Magic Words are: "If you read, you can succeed!" My act will charm children, amaze adults, and entertain everyone!
