"Zatanna was very popular - She was the consummate professional, even when she was interrupted twice for speeches etc (which were unplanned), everyone has asked if I can do it all again next year! People are still trying to figure out her tricks, a sign of a true professional."
Peta Wiseman- CBRE
"Engaging and entertaining, she kept in character throughout her entire performance and afterwards as she moved through the audience and continued to thrill. A must-have for any great occasion where a lot of magic and mystique is the order of the day. Oh yes and the best laugh in the business.....it was contagious"
