    Wonderful new entertainment experience for Brisbane
    A unique Brisbane experience in one of the city's most beautiful picture palace style theatres. Amazing magic performed right up close in an intimate setting followed by an hilarious and magical floor show. So wonderful to see a venue like this in Brisbane. A truly fun night out.

    A magical night to remember.
    A unique and magical night of captivating entertainment for the whole family, by 3 of Australia's top magicians. An intimate and memorable experience in one of Brisbane's heritage-listed buildings. Nostalgia adorns the walls and the room is cosy 'old world'.

    Brilliantly funny. Highly entertaining.
    Simply mind blowing. Probably one of the most entertaining shows I have ever been to. Chris and Josh were funny, highly entertaining, and masters of their craft. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

    Incredible evening of magic and laughs
    The Theatre of Magic offers a mesmerising journey into the realm of close-up illusion, set in the kind of intimate space where every flick of a card and every flourish feels personal. With a blend of intricate card tricks, slide of hand and mind-bending mentalism, the magicians showcase their craft with a proficiency that leaves audiences both laughing and in sheer wonder. This is no ordinary magic show—it’s an insider’s secret, where the magic isn’t just performed but shared directly with you, unfolding in your own hands. In short, The Theatre of Magic is an essential experience for anyone visiting Brisbane, perfect for those seeking to witness the pinnacle of close-up magic. The show promises not just tricks and laughter but a lasting impression of enchantment, guaranteed to linger well beyond the evening’s applause

    A night of magic in Brisvegas
    A trust magical show last night by Christopher and Josh. The setting is intimate with not a bad seat in the room. Good magic makes you keep wondering how it’s done while at the same time knowing you don’t really want to know the secret. This show is all that and more. You’ll laugh and be amazed and have the best night. Oh and okay the pinball machine - it’s a cracker!

    A perfect date night!
    I took my partner for a much needed date night, wow! What a perfect couples adventure right in Brisbane! The magic was simply amazing, performed up close and personal. The venue and staff were great, and parking across the road at the Hilton was very convenient. I can't recommend this enough, especially for couples looking for an easy, fun, and memorable night out.

    A great night out. Not to be missed
    This show was outstanding. Nigel and Christopher are two brilliant magicians at the top of their profession. They combine mesmerising tricks with a great sense of humour. Their engagement with the audience transforms the show from a great magic production to a thoroughly entertaining night out. The show is in an intimate theatre and provides an ideal setting for a very close up view of the performance. This show is an absolute bargain for the price and I would rate it as one of the best I have been to anywhere in the world.

    A wonderful night out
    I attended Nigel and Christopher’s show at Brisbane’s Theatre of Magic on 1 December. I haven’t seen such a thoroughly entertaining, enjoyable and perplexing magic show since I saw Penn and Teller in Las Vegas some years ago. Even though I was in the front row and practically touching both magicians, I still have absolutely no idea how they executed their tricks. They are clearly extremely accomplished performers. It was such a fun night as Nigel and Christopher are both very good at interacting with and involving the audience members and making everyone feel that it was a personal performance for each individual there.

    Awesome evening of fun and magic
    Fantastic evening of fun and magic with my wife and son. Really great close up magic and lots of laughs from our first arrival and meeting our host Nigel right through the entire evening. Seeing tricks close up and still being amazed at how it’s done leaves you with a great feeling of joy and wonder. 100% recommended for a great family experience.

    World Class Magic & Illusions
    Incredible up close magic and illusions. We’ve seen Derren Brown live in London, and Jay Alexander live in San Francisco and this show was up there with them. Thoroughly entertaining, funny and next level skills. A must see for all the family.

Do yourself a favour and go to the Theatre of Magic if you are in Brisbane. Chris, Josh and Nigel are 3 of Australia’s best magicians, sleight of hands and illusionists. From the minute you were welcomed to the show by the guys themselves you were immersed in the wonder and awe of all things magic. The show is intimate with only a small number of attendees allowing you to get up close and personal with the performances. Audience participation is strongly encouraged. I am still baffled by the tricks I witnessed. Hands down one of the best magic shows I’ve seen. I certainly will be going again. If I could give it 10/5 stars I would!!

If you’re looking for total entertainment- check out this show. The venue was great, parking at myer centre convenient & $11 . Easy walk to venue . We got there 30 minutes early & were treated to a pre-show show! We were on a date … however, there were singles there ,as well as, a family with two teenage boys - show was great for all ages- a good night out - thanks to the magicians!!!

If you're stuck on date night ideas or are just looking for an exciting, funny, highly entertaining and highly engaging evening, I highly recommend the Theatre of Magic!

I attended the Theatre of Magic Brisbane with my partner on the weekend, and from the moment we walked in til moment the moment we left, we had smiles on our faces from ear to ear! Our experience at the Theatre of Magic was nothing short of spectacular! At first, we were greeted by The Amazing Nigel which was only where the magical night began! We then entered the venue where Christopher Wayne excited us with some amazing pre-show card magic where he engaged with everyone in the crowd getting us excited for what was yet to come!

Josh Norbido was first up with some close up magic! We could not believe our eyes! Josh performed some magic we have never experienced before which completely blew our minds to say the least! We even had the pleasure after the show to get some personal one-on-one magic done for us which again left us in awe!

We experienced the Floor Show with The Amazing Nigel who not only amazed us with the magical talent he possesses, but we felt so involved in the magic as he engaged with everyone in crowd making us not only witnessing his incredible talent, but being able to feel the magic throughout the entire show!

The evening was filled with laughter, excitement and absolute awe inspiring magical talent, that you truly need to see this show to experience the magical feeling this brings.

If you're looking to see world-class, mind-blowing magic and sleight-of-hand to leave you in absolute awe, go see these Three AMAZING Magicians at the Theatre of Magic. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

A great night out of live theatre watching impressive magic in a classy intimate setting in Brisbane. This is not a kids magic show, as the performers all work corporate events, but still classy for families . We took our sceptical teenage sons who walked away impressed. Highly recommend seeing this ongoing production in the heart of the city. Parking was cheap and easy at the beautiful venue getting our ticket validated at reception.

The performance was very entertaining and the magicians are skilled and they tell good jokes too. The room is beautiful and the hotel staff helpful. We felt very welcome and comfortable there. It’s a great show for all ages. Parking was convenient and affordable if you get it validated at the hotel reception after the show.

We went with our two boys 17 and 14…wasn’t sure what to expect. We had a very warm welcome and from the moment we walked in enjoyed ourselves once the show started it was laughs all night, along with amazing magic….nope just couldn’t figure out how they do it.
Both Magicians were so awesome and very very quick witted. My two boys absolutely loved it and they are a very tough crowd 🤣 , it felt very much like you were there with a bunch of friends with the other patrons all having fun too.
I 100% recommend going along definitely worth the money, we had front row but if you can’t get them don’t worry as all seats are great. Lovely building and $10 parking underneath.
Only thing I would say is to get to the bar fast in the break as only one barman (which is the hotels fault).
Thanks boys keep up the great work and will come again for sure. 👍 🥰

This is such an amazing, and such a kind review! We agree that teenagers are the hardest crowd - thankfully we work hard to make sure that everyone is captivated by the magic. We are so glad that you had an amazing night, thankyou for taking the time to leave a review! - Christopher
