The Spencers have mastered an elusive quality that elevates an ordinary performance into the realm of inspired awe. They have been described as "Modern Day Houdinis" by the media. By combining original theatrical elements with cutting-edge illusions, audience interaction, dramatic lighting, special effects, music, movement and stage magic, the Spencers have propelled the age-old art of magic into the 21st century; and feature illusions guaranteed to take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions – and keep you on the edge of your seat!
