The Blue Room 

The merrily macabre Sylvia Sceptre presents Phantasmagorical. This is a show of thought reading and Victorian Spirit Theatre. The audience will experience the thrills of the Golden Age of Spiritualism. The shows roots are in history, with a flourish of theatrical license. A tribute to female magicians, the women who featured in Mesmerism who’s stories are less often heard. It’s a supernatural spectacle of stories and magic, swirling with dark whimsy. Storytelling drama and magic combine to resonate long after the performance is over.

Does Sylvia Sceptre have the gift of second sight or is it the Victorian affliction of hysteria? Is she half crazed by laudanum or a talented magician conjuring spirits?

Whatever you decide, you will have an intriguing experience to remember.

This 60 minute show is engaging, fun and very different to a typical magic show.

Phantasmagorical toured Edinburgh and Buxton Fringe Festivals and the London Horror Festival. Receiving five star reviews from the press and audience.
