Shadow Magic have taken the vaudeville art of shadow puppets and made it into something contemporary and new. Combining shadows of classic animals such as birds and elephants with famous celebrities, well known characters and magic tricks all set to music to create a one of a kind performance suitable for all nationalities and age groups.
Shadow Magic also perform a Magic and illusion show, close up magic and balloon twisting and can tailor their performance to your individual needs and budgets.
Fantastic performance. Everyone at our wedding, young and old, loved it! Thank you.
Their own distinctive brand of entertainment is certainly originally presented, they deserved and got plenty of applause for their creativity.

Do you provide your own light and screen?
Yes we do.
Can the screen be bigger or smaller?
The shadows can be performed on any white surface so really the size can be as big or as small as you require. we have two screens available one 1.5 m which folds down flat and a larger aluminium frame screen 2m wide. however if you would like to supply your own screen then this can be accommodated also.
How long does it last?
The current length of just the shadows show is 9 mins. for shopping malls etc this show would be repeated 3 - 4 times in a day with a workshop type option in between. However, we are also an accomplished illusion duo and therefore can combine the shadows show with illusions and mindreading to have over 90 mins of audience tested material if required.
How dark does it need to be?
The darker the better is the genral rule of thumb. However, it does not have to be pitch black in order to see the shadows still. Think of a movie being watched with a projector in the area you intend if its dark enough for that the shadows will be seen.
Do you do anything else?
Yes, we perform close up table magic and also make adult balloon caricatures.
- Shadows - 6-8 minutes
- Shadows and Illusion Show - 45 minutes
- Close-Up Magic 1-2 hours
- Balloon Caricatures 1-2 hours
