Chris is truly excellent! He works well with kids and adults & really made our event special. His balloon creations are AWESOME & guests were raving about how great he was. Would absolutely book him again & highly recommend him! THANK YOU CHRIS!
Mr. Berry was hired by my Cub Scout Pack to be Santa at our December Pack meeting, interact with the Scouts, and hand out pinewood derby cars. From initial contact, to communications to finalize arrangements a few days prior to the event, and through the event, Mr. Berry remained courteous and professional. Trying to time the "surprise" arrival of Santa at a strategic point during our meeting required that Mr. Berry hide down a hallway until he got the signal to come in. There were unforeseen delays on our part, and Mr. Berry remained cheerful and willing to roll with the punches. His job as Santa went off without a hitch and we have recommended him to other Cub Scout Packs.
Santa was timely and up for selfies at an employee party. The employees kids had a great time talking with him and the employees loved taking pictures with him.
What a memorable visit from Santa Claus! He mesmerized our two granddaughters not only with the presents he delivered to them, but with the stories he shared about his many names, his various suits, his elves, and the magic of his sack. We were very happy with his visit.
Santa wasn't jolly or interactive with the kids! Walked around and that's it! We wasted money on this part of our event! Was paid to do basically nothing but show up in an outfit!
Santa was great with the kids and very understanding that this was our first year doing our Brunch with santa and that it didn't run as smoothly as we wanted!
Santa was on time children were excited made pictures and read stories made for a very good evening for the entire group. I will do ti again

What to Expect
Chris' family show is 45 minutes to an hour duration (depending on clients needs). He will also offer balloon animals after the show (for a nominal fee). His show consists of comedy, magic, audience participation, and more! All this in a self contained road case that also transforms into a table for him to perform with.
Santa will make his grand entrance and will be escorted to his area (client must provide seating for santa). Santa will meet and greet with all guests, pass out candy canes (sugar-free), have pictures taken, and will engage in conversations (including asking what everybody wants for Christmas). Additionally Santa can tell stories of various Christmas topics and even read a version of the famous "Night Before Christmas" as told from his perceptive. Other Items that Santa will have on him include a toy bag (the client can fill up with gifts), a reindeer neck collar, a candy cane walking cane, and a magic key. Before Santa leaves he will engage with everyone in a Christmas carol (if time allows).
Chris has been interested in magic since he was 7 years old. Since then, he had become an award-winning entertainer. His experience expands a wide range of performance venues from close-up magic in restaurants to grand illusion on theatrical stages. He also has 10 years of experience in theatrical arts and won awards in acting, directing, and set/costume design. He has also published books and wrote articles on technical theater for aspiring Illusionists in VANISH (an international online magazine for magicians). Currently, he works as an illusion consultant for international Illusionists, Broadway-style musicals, and haunted attractions.
His portrayal as Santa started in 2007 and had since made numerous appearances throughout the state of Michigan. He was trained by the current Santa for the "America's Thanksgiving Day Parade" in Detroit. His suit is custom made and he can even remove his coat to reveal a renaissance style shirt and a pair of overalls (perfect for those who want a workshop look).
Additional Booking Notes
For birthday parties, Chris doesn't need a lot of space, both indoors and out. His show is self-contained and easy to transport. Larger venues might require further technical assistance (ie sound system, lighting, portable stage, etc.). Please contact Chris to discuss the details.
