West End’s Impossible seeks budding stars – full details

West End magic show, Impossible, is on the hunt for its next star.

Jamie Hendry, the show’s 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.”

Impossible is the biggest magic show to thrill the West End in decades, with world class magicians performing inconceivable feats of magic and illusion. 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.

Please send a video of no more than 30 seconds in length to casting by 12:00 on Monday 6 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 6 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 13 July until 29 August.
