From Dan Sperrys shock illusions to comedy magician
Jeff Hobson to Escapologist Andrew Basso who performs the
Houdini inspired underwater escape live on stage, there
is no other group of magicians who can deliver the mind-blowing

Kevin James, The Inventor, is the man who created
most of the famous illusions and tricks that youll
see performed anywhere in the world by top magicians, and
we have him bringing his favourite illusions to life as
part of the show. Robbie Macrae, Director of THE EDGE
Performing Arts Centre says that The Illusionists is a magic
show like never before seen in New Zealand and another major
stage show for Auckland and the rest of New Zealand to enjoy.
Were incredibly excited to have secured The
Illusionists for a season at The Civic.
We havent had a blockbuster magic show of this kind
in Auckland before and we know that the theatricality and
artistry of the show will completely astonish our audiences.
