  • Now thats magic!!

    This evening was an absolute treat as Andy, Kevin (our actor playing Hamlet) and I sat as Paul Daniels charmed us with magic tricks, anecdotes and hilarious gag suggestions for the play.

    I can say with genuine pleasure that it is so exciting to be working with a legend, he has so much to give and is not only bringing an awesome life to the character of Hamlet’s father’s ghost but is also giving us lots of practical suggestions about some of the set pieces in the show, ideas for illusions and magic tricks! It’s going to be fantastic!!

    We are shooting the scenes with Paul tomorrow at Fleetwood Studios in Reading, we will let you know how it goes and stay tuned for photos and some video from the day to get behind the scenes!!
