Over the past few years we have often been asked if we could do something Victorian for various events.  So we have decided due to popular demand to put together a Victorian show.  We have spent a lot of time and a lot of money over the last couple of years, researching and recreating Victorian illusions from the great masters of Magic, Houdin, Selbitt, Blackstone and Harry Houdini.

 Such fantastic illusions as Chung Ling Soo 'Origami illusion' We also pay tribute to Harry Houdini by performing the strait jacket escape, and Houdini's world famous metamorphosis, in which two members of the public are invited on stage to check that all the apparatus, used is genuine.  I am tied inside a sack and placed inside a locked trunk (an exact copy of Houdini's original) Sue stands on top and raises the curtain and in the blink of an eye the metamorphosis is achieved, with a complete transformation, myself free and Sue in the still locked trunk.  This illusion is as baffling today as was when Houdini first performed it in 1893 as Houdini said, "Without a single doubt the greatest mystery of the present time"

 As well as having Victorian props recreated, we have also purchased period costume and we now feel that we are ready to present the show to the public.
