Filipino magicians, along with child singer Charlie Green, are set to perform in the first major mainstream magic show in the Philippines on December 27 at the Music Museum in Greenhills, San Juan.

A ventriloquist,  a corporate magician, card manipulator, mime, classical magician and a magician that does trick with butterflies will gather together for a night of magic, comedy and music dubbed as the “The Illusive: World of Wonders.”

The two-hour performance will feature a new generation of magicians called “The Illusive.”

“Most of the magicians they own solo acts and categories and we are doing this as a group.  We would like to take magic in the mainstream level so that the whole world can see also that talented Filipinos can do such things as well,” magician JD dela Cruz told “[email protected]” Thursday.  

Dela Cruz said he and his five other magician friends thought of coming up with a show that would combine magic and music together “for the magic to look magical.” 

He said the group’s first choice was Green, the Fil-Brit boy who became famous after joining the reality show “Britain's Got Talent.” He said the group was ecstatic that the young singer had agreed to be part of the show.

“He (Green) was really so shocked, surprised and so excited for the show. He’s going to be doing something special,” he said.

Dela Cruz, who has been dong magic tricks since he was in grade school, does interactive magic corporate shows.
