TRAVINA TORRES, HAPPY HOLLOW PARK & ZOO

"We recently had the pleasure of booking Andar the Sorcerer for a special event at Happy Hollow Park & Zoo, and the experience was nothing but magical! Andar's performance not only brought enchantment to the stage but also created an atmosphere of wonder and unforgettable moments for families inside the park. I couldn't help but overhear the delighted gasps and excitement from our guests, with numerous 'ooo' and 'ahh' moments. It was evident that Andar had successfully created an atmosphere of pure enchantment for children in the audience.

Equally impressive was Andar's interactive approach with the audience. Actively engaging with our guests, Andar brought special volunteers to the stage, adding an extra layer of excitement and making the event even more memorable. The connection established with the audience created an inviting atmosphere, turning the performance into a shared experience for both children and adults.

If you're looking to add a touch of magic and fun to your event, Andar the Sorcerer is the option for you."
