Close Up Magician: 3rd June 2015. The Lowry, Manchester.

Manchester Magician Stephen Williams performed at the opening night of Wicked! Find out more below... I was recently asked to perform some close up magic at the opening night of the musical Wicked, at the Manchester Lowry. Although I'm based in Liverpool, I'm very often asked to perform as a magician in Manchester, and with being a huge fan of the show (it's hard not to be!), I was delighted they got in touch to ask me to come along.

The show's organisers were holding a VIP drinks reception for the premier night, and were looking for something unique, intriguing and fun to offer the guests before the show - so I was thrilled to hear that they had been recommended my services as a close up magician by someone who had seen me before.

Upon arriving to the theatre, I walked into the designated room and was astonished to find it transformed into all things Oz! Remarkebly, the entire place, including the flowers and tables had all been changed to match the show. It really did look amazing.

I mingled with the guests as they walked in and performed some close up magic to them in small groups. It was brilliant fun and the guests seem to really enjoy the magic, so it was a pleasure to perform.

It was an honour to be asked to be a part of the night and I'm looking forward to being back at The Lowry again soon.
