Sam Jones (magician)

Sam Jones
I saw Sam Jones performing magic at Seaford's Barn Theatre way back in December 2011 when he had a short spot as the highlight of Seaford Musical Theatre's Christmas show. I remember a fabulous trick where he made a fountain of snow appear on stage to the delight of everyone watching. A natural performer, he quickly created a great rapport with the audience, engaging with the children whilst also aiming a few 'adult' innuendos perfectly over their heads!

A magician since the age of four, Sam's first performance was at his primary school, aged just five. At eleven Sam started performing his first paid gigs and his reputation quickly spread through referrals and word of mouth. Now an adult, Sam has kept his passion to entertain, baffle and astound and loves the reactions he receives from people of all ages ... especially the girls! He performs regularly at all sorts of events ranging from Weddings, Pubs, Restaurants, Hotels, Corporate Events and Parties. His YouTube channel has several short films of his work including the street magic sequence at the end of this post.

Sam has devised a brand new show for 2013 which is coming to Seaford's Barn Theatre on the 9th of March. It promises to be a fun filled evening for all the family and will include puppets, comedy, music and, of course, magic.

Barn Theatre, Sat 9th Mar, 19.30.
Tickets £7.50 adult, £5 children, available online via Ticketsource or by calling 07710 426321.
