Grand illusions coming to Southbank

10 Dec 2015

Grand illusions coming to Southbank Image

By Eva Garnes

From January 2 – 10, visitors will be transported back to the era of magician superstars at the Arts Centre.

The Illusionists 1903 features a world-famous cast portraying the magical greats of the past. As part of the cast, audiences will meet The Eccentric, The Immortal, The Conjuress and The Escapist.

“We are taking the audience back to the golden age of magic, to the retro-cool era where illusionists were performing all the infamous tricks,” Charlie Frye said.

Charlie fills the role as The Eccentric in the show and, together with the rest of the cast, he is giving audiences a first-hand experience of performances such as the Floating Lady and the Water Torture Cell.

“With both a cinematic score and beautifully-made sets designed to transport you back in time, we are ready to show Melburnians the best from our golden age. We believe our performance has a broad appeal, especially now with the success of films and TV shows portraying the same era. Also, people always love a great illusion,” Mr Frye continued.

Even if you think you know the tricks, you will be surprised, as new twists have been added to keep the excitement on top. When you join this international group of magicians, you will experience an evening you’ll never forget.

More information about the show, and tickets, can be found at www.artscentremelbourne.com.au
