The British couple who have been performing the Quick Change Act for around 4 years enjoyed a short trip to Italy last weekend, which made a pleasant change to perform in Europe.

The Quick Change Artists spend most of their time outside the UK as there is a high demand for their incredible dress change magic in Asia, especially in India. Keelan and Charlotte find themselves, frequently flying back and forth from India to perform at so many different corporate events and parties.

To perform in Rome, Italy was a lovely change. A short flight and a short trip made it very enjoyable. The event was put on by General Motors as a celebration for their Asian Pacific top sales people.

The event was held in a beautiful villa overlooking the whole of the city of Rome. The Quick Change Artists were booked to perform two acts - the Origami Illusion as the opening for the show and their quick change act as the closer to the show. The majority of the audience did not speak English, so being that both acts are so visual, they went down a storm!

After the show over the weekend, the Quick Change Artists took a couple of extra days to explore the ancient city and had a fantastic time.

Abracadabra Magic Show - Cairo - Egypt - April 2009

Abracadabra Magic Show - Cairo - Egypt - April 2009

Keelan and Charlotte, the UK's only Quick Change Artists have just returned from Cairo, Egypt after appearing in a 4 show, magic spectacular along with the most famous illusionists in the world, the Pendragons! This magic show was the first of its kind to be held in Egypt and the organisers took a large risk putting the show on but it definitely paid off as the four shows were sold out! The magic show was held at the Cairo Exhibition Centre and seated 2000 people. The people of Egypt, weren't really sure what to expect but their reaction has proved the success of the show, which is in talks of putting together more later in the year, also in the neighbouring countries. It was a first for the Egyptians to see quick change, illusions and sleight of hand.

The line up for the show was put together by David Lai, famous Mentalism from Maylasia and directed by Maylasian Illusionist, Kenneth Wong. The line up for the show was the US comedy magician - Jay Mattioli, Aerial Artist and Magician - Kristi Toguchi - The World Famous Illusionists -The Pendragons and of course us, Quick Change Artists - Keelan Leyser and Charlotte Marie!

The Pendragons, performed several spots in the show including the Fire Basket, the Broomstick Levitation and they closed the show with their incredible Metamphorsis Illusion which is absolutely mindblowing!

The group got on so well and the trip was a pleasure for everyone to be involved in. We met some amazing people, including the other performers, the organisers and the helpers for the show.

One of the shows was in aid of Orphans Day which is held on the first Friday of every April. The theatre was packed out with over 2000 orphans, who were brought to watch the show. We got to meet so many of them after the show, which actually was heart breaking, but we were pleased that we got to show them the Quick Change as it was something they wouldn't have seen before!

Quick Change Artists head back to India - February 2009

Quick Change Artists head back to India - February 2009

In recent months, Keelan Leyser and Charlotte Marie, the UK's only Quick Change Artists have been traveling back and forth between the UK and India, performing their amazing 8 minutes Quick Change Act.Their debut in India was back in November to celebrate 100 years of Hindustan Unilever. The event was held in the 5* Hyatt Hotel in Mumbai. Keelan and Charlotte were part of the entertainment schedule which also included a troop of 30 Indian dancers as well as a Bollywood musician.

They had a brilliant time in Mumbai, despite only being there for 2.5 days. It was literally a flying trip, but they managed to cram in a bit of tourist activity, and it was just as well, because a couple of weeks after they left - the awful Mumbai terrorist attacks occurred and the Taj Palace was destroyed.

In February they returned to India, this time performing in both Delhi and Jaipur for AirTel and Vodafone. Their stay was 5 days this time and they were driving from Delhi to Jaipur so it gave them the opportunity to see more of India. The drive is around 4-6 hours depending on traffic and the entire area is desert so there were plenty of cows, camels and elephants to see along the way.

The shows went very well and it looks as though we are heading back out to Mumbai and Bangalore in early March for several shows again for AirTel.

After the Baltic Season on the Star Princess, Keelan and Charlotte returned to The Sea Princess to take it across from the UK to the Caribbean to begin the winter season over there.

They spend the first 2 months in the Med on the Sea Princess ship.
