I am a "one of a kind" magician and the perfect performer for the imaginative child! I also have a magic show for grown-ups and it is guaranteed to be like none they've seen before. Both conjure up laughter, delight and amazement. Active audience involvement is the most important component and there will be many opportunities for memorable photographs as we share the magic. My Photo Gallery on this site shows a variety of my different performances.
I have colorful props and fabulous costumes and I'd love to tailor my show to your special requests. I also have a children's magic show for each major holiday!
I recently saw Debbie perform and was especially impressed with her sense of theater, color, and imagination. She studied theater and mime in addition to magic and this adds a lot to her show. She also makes her own props so the audience sees things they have not seen before. I understand she also has an extensive wardrobe to go with her various themed shows. So the children had a great time and so did the adults. A special treat!
Debbie was very entertaining with lots of audience participation. The children loved her show.
Debbie O'Carroll did a wonderful job with her Halloween themed magic show! The various magic tricks and story telling kept the kids attention for a long time. She was punctual and very professional during communications before the event as well as during the party.
We asked her if she could do a yoga theme and she did an outstanding job combining a magic show and yoga class all in one! The kids were mesmerized and energized. The parents loved Debbie's creativity. I was amazed that she remembered the name of every child in the audience as well!
This is a Fairy Grandmother who delivers! I have seen Debbie O'Carroll perform several times now, and each time I've been impressed by how truly creative and fun her shows are. Unlike some magicians I've seen (ahem!), Debbie clearly has a strong background in theater, because the fanciful characters she plays on stage are hilarious and interesting, and she is able to engage members of the audience in a natural way. As for her magical effects--they're amazing! How she makes this appear and disappear, or change places, or colors, or transform, or read people's minds, etc., I wish I knew. (No--that would spoil it. I'd rather not know!)
I highly recommend this show, especially for younger children. The latter will be delighted and energized by Ms. O'Carroll's playful approach to magical mysteries.

What to Expect
Expect a creative, high energy, thoroughly professional children's magic show with unique magic tricks, zany physical comedy and enchanting props and costumes. I have a vast experience entertaining children and I love to involve them in my performance!
Because I want all your young guests to have a wonderful experience, I use no common allergens in my performance.
My props and costumes can enhance any theme! Choose a traditional magician's outfit, a fairy grandmother, a magical wizard or a goofy monster... I'd love to tailor my show to your special requests!
In my many years as a children's performer, I've had the wonderful opportunity to perform at a variety of venues including schools, libraries, private parties, summer camps, theaters, fairs, festivals, churches, synagogues, yoga studios and shopping malls. I've presented magic shows for the children of the King of Jordan, at the wedding of the son of an Irish Senator, on skis at a ski resort, on a pier overlooking Long Island Sound and on top of a mountain in a wildlife preserve. You could say I'm versatile!
I have been a full-time professional children's entertainer for over thirty years. With my warm and friendly persona, creative magic skills and lively physical comedy, I delight and captivate audiences young and old. I studied children's theater at Emerson College and at Lesley University where I received my M.A.
My career began in a children's variety theatre company with Tom Bergeron, Gene Boles and Jim Flood and I've also performed with the Communications Theatre Group, City Stage, The Opera Company of Boston, The National Mime Theatre and "Dollee & Debbie." I have served on the Board of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, Boston, since 1991. For many years I played the role of the Mechanical Doll in the Boston F. A. O. Schwarz window.
In 1997, I received a performance award from the Munster Society of Magicians in Limerick, Ireland and I was The New England Magical Entertainment Group's Performer of the Year in 2003. In 2009, I was presented with a Beacon Award from the City of Newburyport, Massachusetts with recognition from the Massachusetts House of Representatives for inspiring youngsters through the art of magic.
