The Magic & Illusion of William Scott Anderson proudly presents…
M.A.S.H. meets Magic in this two hour Las Vegas style production! Filled with extraordinary magic, hilarious comedy, tons of audience participation, and impossible illusions, your amazement is guaranteed!! Through Magic and Illusion, Scott tells stories based upon the many experiences he’s had and exotic locations he’s been to while serving as an American Soldier. This is magical theatre at its finest. The performances you will see are one of a kind as they are all based upon his own life. You will laugh hysterically when he brings an audience member on stage and shows him how he used to earn extra money by “conning” his superior officers out of their cash when you see “The Private’s Right!” You will be moved to tears as you hear the story of treating the wounded children from Afghanistan and Iraq, and Scott’s attempt to fulfill a little girl’s wish in “The Iraqi Snowstorm.”
Best of all, this is for all ages. The illusion show is a combination of classic and modern illusion. You will see some of the latest mind boggling effects as well as illusions performed by the great Harry Houdini. People will disappear, get cut in half, and have their minds read! This show is designed to be modular and can be tailored exactly to your needs regarding the size, duration, and budget! This program may require a significant amount of space to perform and a back stage area, though we can work with most any venue.
“The Theatre Show!”
The Theater Show is a show like no other. Each show contains stage and close-up magic that is so incredible and entertaining, your audience will hardly believe their eyes! Perfect for company parties, banquets, trade shows, and most any other venue with an audience around 250 people or less.
Utilizing masterful slight of hand, a commanding stage presence, and quick wit, Scott will mesmerize your guests with a series of truly astonishing magical effects. Watch Anderson as he makes you sign a dollar bill, then vanishes the bill in your hands, has you pick 1 lemon out of a bag of 10, and then cuts YOUR lemon open to find your signed dollar bill in the middle. Watch him perform his award winning rope magic routine where you or an audience member repeatedly cuts an audience inspected rope in half only to have it restored right before your very eyes.
And if that is not enough, you will be amazed when Scott reads your mind, and tells you what you are thinking, and who or where you are thinking about. This is a fun show with a lot of audience participation performed within inches from the audience’s eye. It is a sheer delight to all when he places his head into the “Medieval Head Chopper” and cons an audience member to help pull the lever, only to notice that the assistant is nervous about the possibility of a catastrophic accident, so to prevent any “Undeserved Stress” Scott graciously trades places with the audience member and finishes out the illusion!
“Close up / Street Magic!”
Close up/Street magic is incredible magic that happens right in your own hands, or just inches away from your very eyes.
Cards and coins appear and disappear! Your signed dollar bill disappears from your hands and reappears in a lime wrapped in cellophane! Many people say that Close-Up Magic is their favorite kind of magic, because it just seems impossible to see it all happen so near!
If your event is less structured, and people are roaming about, then this type of magic is best. Scott performs slight-of-hand routines from group to group, entertaining them with amazing, interactive close-up magic. Walk-Around Magic is also great for the cocktail hour before dinner to “warm-up” the crowd for a Stand-Up Magic Show after dinner.
Great for: Company Parties, Cocktail Parties, Get-Together’s, Carnivals and Fairs, Fund-Raisers
