Adelaide Festival Centre's THE ILLUSIONISTS Kicks Off 2013 on New Year's Eve, Dec 31

With some of the world's hottest magicians appearing in The Illusionists on the Festival Theatre stage, two additional Illusionists have been added to the line-up when this spectacular show opens on New Year's Eve, 31 December 2012 and running until 12 January 2013.

'The Gentleman' Mark Kalin and 'The Enchantress' Jinger Leigh will join the incredible line-up when The Illusionists comes to Adelaide. Working together, Kalin and Jinger have developed a reputation for their mix of innovative illusions and their distinctive style. In 1998 they were awarded 'Magicians of The Year' from The Academy of Magical Arts (The Magic Castle), the highest honour in magic, recognising their unique achievements and charismatic performances.

For this season, the Festival Theatre will be transformed into a magician's playground for a family-friendly show, which will see seven internationally acclaimed illusion gods joining forces to ignite the stage as they take magic into the 21st century and beyond.

Audiences will witness a nail-biting Russian roulette, jaw-dropping acts of levitation, mind-reading, disappearances, and thrilling escapes for Adelaide Festival Centre's first comprehensive exploration of the genre of magic. From The Magic Circle and Hollywood's Magic Castle, to Harry Potter and the rising inclusion of magicians on prime time TV such as Australia's Got Talent, the world of illusion and intrigue has long captured the public imagination. This production will present a rare opportunity for audiences of all ages to see the grand masters of illusion at work in one spellbinding production.

Nowhere else on New Year's Eve will there be a more exciting event to see in the New Year! To continue the celebrations, there will be a New Year's Eve party in the Festival Centre Banquet Room from 10.30pm, where you can mingle with the cast and have the best view in town watching the fireworks display over the River Torrens.

Party entertainment includes a mix of burlesque dance from the wonderful Bella Rouge and local singer Jayne-Anne Power will bring funk and soul to the party with a dash of dance floor beats. So be sure to get in early to secure your 'hot ticket' for this exclusive NYE event and start the New Year off with a little bit of magic! The show is suitable for 8+ years.
