Wizard Presents is passionate about
telling stories for the whole family

About Us


Wizard Presents, founded in 1999, is led by John Miller and Danyah Miller who, together with a range of practitioners and associates, create inspiring and compelling family shows and musicals for all ages. Our solo family shows are performed by Danyah whilst John leads on all our musical productions.

Each year we offer a small number of performances to venues free of charge in order for us to reach families and children who would not otherwise have the opportunity or means to see high quality shows. Please contact us if you would like to discuss this.
