Magic spectacular for M&S arena

LIVERPOOL’S M&S Bank Arena will host a huge magic show this summer.

Liverpool-based Shone Productions are bringing the show, named X-treme Magic – The World’s Most Dangerous Thrill Show to the stage on Saturday May 22.

Promising not to be an ‘old-fashioned rabbit-out-of-hat magic’, producers say the show is designed to thrill with death-defying edge-of-your-seat stunts, grand stage illusions, daredevil escapology, and mind-blowing magic all within a fast-paced performance.

Producer James Shone commented: “I am delighted to be bringing the very first live show of the year to The Auditorium at the M&S Arena. Audiences have missed out on so many live experiences over the last 12 months, so it’s a real privilege that we will be presenting shows once lockdown restrictions are eased.

“And what a show it is, we have some of leading magicians and illusionists in the industry, we have created a spectacular production for all the family to enjoy. We want to reassure theatregoers that social distancing and safety measures will be in place to ensure Covid-secure performances – audience, cast and crew safety is paramount.”

Master illusionist Richard Cadell will be joined by a full supporting cast of magicians including Pete Firman (Tonight At The London Palladium), Elizabeth Best (Britain’s Got Talent) and Craig Christian (Evolution Of Magic), as well as fire artistes, speciality acts and dancers. The show is billed as being unlike any other magic show ever seen in the UK. 

Created in Las Vegas, it was then brought across the pond to entertain UK audiences. Highlights include making a motorcycle appear from nowhere; Russian roulette with sticks of Dynamite; and even trying to escape from a straight-jacket while hung from a burning rope.

Organisers are keen to reassure theatregoers that all necessary safety measures – including social distancing – will be in place to ensure a relaxing and enjoyable return to indoor live entertainment.
