West End show Impossible searching for child magic stars

Magic show Impossible is searching for two 8 – 12 year old children with a keen interest in magic to join the magicians and illusionists in a new spectacular starring role during the production's West End run. 

The chosen performers will play a key role in the production, opening the show and joining the magicians in an "astounding" closing sequence. 

Jamie Hendry (producer) said: "This is a rare opportunity for a budding magician to join a team of world-class illusionists on stage as they perform a range a death-defying stunts, and amazing tricks live in front of a West End theatre audience. They will get to see first-hand just how powerful and impressive magic can be, and hopefully this will be the start of their careers as stars of the future – it will certainly make for an interesting “what I did this summer report” when they get back to school!"

The character is a young child, who dreams of one day becoming a world class magician. Opening the show, he or she watches in awe as the greatest magicians and illusionists take to the stage.

This is an exciting opportunity for budding young actors or magicians to work alongside the multi-award winning producer and director, Anthony Owen, and to join a host of world-class magicians in the biggest and most exciting new magic show to thrill London this summer.

The chosen performers will need to be aged between 8-12 years with a playing age of 7-8. Applicants must send a video of no more than 30 seconds in length to by 12pm on Monday 6th July about why they love magic and why they want to be part of Impossible, along with a short email from their legal guardians providing the name, age, address and photograph. 

A shortlist of up to 50 applicants will then be selected, where they will meet the Creative Director and producers in central London during the week of 6th July. The chosen performers will need to be comfortable being on stage in front of more than 900 people a night and be available to rehearse and perform from 13th July until 29th August.
