Casting has been confirmed for the first UK tour of Magic Goes Wrong.
From the makers of The Play That Goes Wrong together with magic legends Penn & Teller, Magic Goes Wrong follows a hapless gang of magicians as they stage an evening of grand illusion to raise cash for charity.
Inevitably, the magic turns to mayhem and accidents spiral out of control – as does their fundraising target!
