The Trickery



An evening of magical wonder, breath-taking burlesque and hilarious comedy - all in one show!

Following on from a successful run of shows last year, The Trickery returns, bringing you the best vaudeville and variety acts from all over the world. Ranging from mind readers to exotic dancers, from stage pick-pockets to close up magicians and everything in between. This unique show will leave you feeling astounded, amazed and thirsty for more.

March brings you Chris De Rosa. Chris has a long family history of being involved with magic. Indeed his Great Uncle was the only blind conjurer to tour the Old Music Halls of the 1800's. The stories of hie family heritage started Chris on his journey to create The Art of Illusion. Since turning professional at 16, he has never looked back! One of his biggest achievements was previously being awarded British Magical Champion of Illusion by the worlds largest magic convention in Blackpool by his peers. During his 21 year career he has worked aboard cruise ships for P&O Oceania, Fred Olsen MS Boudicca, MS Black Watch and MS Breamar and Louis Cruise Lines in Cyprus.

Chris has performed and starred in revue shows for Solverde Casinos in the Algarve in Portugal in his own production called It's Magic, where he designed and constructed all of the illusions as featured in the show. Originally contracted for 3 months, but was extended to 7 months due to the shows success. Another exciting adventure was being asked to perform exclusively for Hong Kong Tourist Board for 1 night only, live in Victoria Park in downtown Hong Kong. The show was backed live by The New Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and a cast of 40 performers which he made vanish at the end live on stage. the show was broadcast live to the whole of China to millions of people  He also created, co-directed and starred in 2 different illusion productions for Flamingo Land Theme Park in North Yorkshire during 2009 and 2010 for the resident guests. The show ran for 9 months in each year. this involved Chris staying on park in the first 2 months where he designed and built the shows special effects and illusions on site.

We also welcome to Scott Cuthbertson back to The Trickery. One of Scotland's top working professionals, we are very lucky to have Scott back for this one off show. Having been professional for over thirteen years, and with a client list that includes Rangers AND Celtic FC, the Hilton hotel chain and a host of other, it is fair to say that Scott is one of Scotland's very best entertainers.

Local lad Peter Wood will be providing the laughs on the night. No stranger to the comedy scene, Peter is a former finalist in Scottish Comedian of the Year who will be making his return to The Trickery after a years absence.

Burlesque will be provided by the ever glamorous Miss Scarlet Flame. Although predominantly a burlesque performer, Scarlett also works with fire, juggling, poi , fans and hoops, as well venturing into the world of Body Painting. She draws on many different styles of dance, elaborate costume and performance art in order to create breathtaking and unusual acts. When she is not dancing, Scarlett is also in demand as a model – mostly booked for Gothic and Pin-Up work. She has been fortunate to work with some top photographers, and continues to offer a range of interesting looks. Scarlett returned to performing after being asked to perform at the 2008 World Body Painting Festival in Seeboden, Austria. This international event showcases the work of the worlds top body artists, and she proudly wore the contributions from the only Scottish Team in the competition, in both the Brush & Sponge and Face Award categories. She returned to represent Scotland again in the World Body Painting festival in 2009. Scarlett is now regularly asked to incorporate body art into her live performances, including a stunning showcase performance at Coco De Mer, in their Covent Garden store window.

She may stand a tiny 5′ 2″ tall, but her stage presence is captivating. She trained in ballet from the age of three, and has always loved the glamour and glitter of performing.
