THE MAGIC MANSION
A place where ordinary people can see extra-ordinary magic!
THE MAGIC MANSION is designed to present magic and illusion in the finest of settings. A fully functional theatre that will cater for all types of performances from close-up magic to presentations of stage magic and illusions.
THE MAGIC MANSION will become a hub for the performance of close-up and stage magic. A place for the professional but also where young magicians will have the opportunity to perform with the support of professionals, in a professional environment.
Ken & Judy Russell have wanted to create a performance space for magic for some time. With their enthusiasm and generosity they have created THE MAGIC MANSION, designed and built by Gordon Arney.
Gordon Arney designed and single handedly built this remarkable intimate theatre and performance space. It is a tribute to his skills as an engineer that he has been able to articulate Ken's vision and incorporate his own personal touches. He is also the builder of all the magical effects and illusions used in performance by Ross Skiffington.
Ross Skiffington is regarded as Australia's leading illusionist and the recipient of two Lifetime Achievement awards for his Contribution to the Art of Magic. He is also a recipient of the Order of the Sphinx (Gold Bar) by the Australian Society of Magicians. Ross has been performing at THE MAGIC MANSION for the past 3 years.
Wendy Dalton has been the personal assistant and choreographer for Ross Skiffington for the past 20 years. Together they have created a unique performance style that incorporates dance with magic and illusion.
