If you want to be part of THE professional magic team in SG, read this!


Yes, you read it right! We are looking for people to work with us on a series of projects in the upcoming months.

I have to let you know first that my team is not the easiest to work with. Chemistry and compatibilty to our working style is essential. We DO NOT come from the same backgrounds. In fact, our backgrounds are very different but we share the same views on ethics, honesty, integrity and professionalism. If you do not have high standards in these areas, you probably may not stand a high chance of working with us.

Many do email or call asking to work with us but many times, we do not have room in the company or the fit is just not right. So, we have to sincerely reject those interested. If you have been or are rejected, it has no bearing on you as a person or magician, it is just that the fit is not right.

Now, we are going for an official hunt for the right people. We are not looking for many but the few who are selected, if any at all, will be enriched with knowledge and experience that you cannot get anywhere else in Singapore, in a short amount of time. This is a fact, not an opinion. Everyone who has spent time with us has benefited. Many are doing their own thing now and are making a living in magic as a result.

You do not necessary need to have good knowledge in magic or possess a high level of education (although everyone in the company now is currently a University grad or undergrad…  but, no pressure or expectations)

I should mention that all applications will be strictly confidential.

Here are the ‘official’ specifications:

Concept:Magic is looking for motivated individuals to work as members of our show production & performing team on a project/ show basis for 3 major magic projects from May – Jul 2009.

From magic techniques, stage craft, backstage work and show production, you will be exposed to all aspects of professional magic production. The commitment is flexible based on the individual’s value and schedule.

    can I say the word cool? will start scratching my head and start thinking what to write! i dont think its often there is an opportunity to work with a magic production company in Singapore. carpe diem!

  2. GoblinGrenade says:

    “now is currently a University grad or undergrad” and no pressure? :X sounds pressuring already.. but then again, this is a well established company and one would be getting to learn so much more then just doing a desk job. 🙂 3 magic projects. sounds thrilling.

  3. ZY90 says:

    Why must I be schooling during that period? haiz. Faster school finish… Maybe next year can have something like this again and I would be free.

  4. KennethL says:

    I am interested in creating shows. Not magic shows but getting exposure to Stage craft, Backstage work and Show production would be terrific! Where do I sign up? -begins writing resume~

  5. NanoMan says:

    Hiring at this point of time of the economy? That is good news to many people since everyone is looking for a job or work at this point of time. I’ll tell my friends who are looking for a job.

  6. BlueTornado says:

  7. Amazzo says:

  8. cardistry2007 says:

    hmm. looks like an opportunity for some people to get a job during that few months. I dont think its for me. 🙂 I’m more of a card guy. Plus I’m not free. haa.. Good luck to all applying though.

  9. Aaron says:

    does it matter if i’m working now? cos i wouldn’t want to be caught at both ends, and end up tied down with all work and no play. we can work around with the schedule right?

  10. Khai85 says:

    I am a Singaporean-born performer based in Australia. I have worked in the magic entertainment industry for the past 15 years in Australia, Asia and Europe. I can safely state that my stage partner and co-producer, Elio is one of (if not the best!) magic brains and performer in this region.

    I just want to congratulate you for popularizing magic in S’pore and on your permanent illusion show. It is not the style of magic (grand/mega illusions) that excites or challenges me, but it is just a matter of personal taste!

    All the best with all your future endeavours!
