In 1983 something amazing happened, The Magic of Mike Snyder & Donna was created. It all started years earlier, when Mike became interested in magic at the early age of five and was performing professionally by the age of twelve in and around his home town of Lancaster, PA. Through the years Mike had different assistants, but when Donna joined him as a partner the show took on a whole new direction.
As graduates of the prestigious Chavez School of Magic, the duo developed new and unique illusions, sophisticated magic effects, and professional sets and sound systems. The result is now known as The Magic of Mike Snyder & Donna and their production company, which is capable of playing in most any venue with great success.
Performing as partners, the team has won numerous awards through the years and they're constantly thinking of new ways to "WOW" the audience. Mike and Donna were married in 1986 and have worked their magic from Maine to Southern Florida, and from Hollywood, California to the beach resorts and casinos along the Atlantic. Abroad they have performed in Portugal, Mexico, Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Canada. They are full-time performers and very dedicated to their art.
The Magic of Mike Snyder & Donna has been the featured entertainment at Major Resorts and Hotels, Corporate Events, aboard International Cruise Ships, Conventions, Private Parties and Banquets, as well as School Shows, and Amusement Parks. One Park owner raved, "Our customers love their show and we are more than happy. We do not get as big a 'bang for the buck' from any of our other shows." Mike and Donna have also performed in films and television across the country.
In February of 1996, Mike was selected to add a special touch of magic to a childrens' production at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater in Lancaster, PA. After seeing his talents the director wrote a special part into the show for him and he revived that role in the spring of 2003. Since that original role, Mike has gone on as a magic consultant, designing magic and special effects for various productions throughout PA, he has even helped in designing and working on illusions for some of the top names in magic.
The Snyders' award-winning act is a unique blend of magic and large illusions, audience participation and comedy that equals the best in entertainment. The combination of these two talented illusionists performing together makes this a most unusual and entertaining show that you won't want to miss. The Magic of Mike Snyder & Donna is truly a show that is entertaining for all ages and occasions.
