REVIEW - Theatre People

"For the next hour we heard lots of noise – laughter, gasps, denial and shouts of delight. The Laneway Theatre, built in Ellis’ house, is a cosy, intimate venue, so there is nowhere for Ellis hide. It’s far harder to assume smoke and mirrors are responsible for what you are seeing, when you feel that you could reach out and touch the performer (many could – it’s a very audience participatory type of show). Almost everyone in the audience participated in at least one trick – a few people even went back for more.

Ellis is one of those performers that even if you aren’t into their genre/field, their face is familiar. Tim Ellis has performed on a LOT of TV shows, and is something of the face of magic in Australia. He is calm and personable when you meet him as you take your seat, and wait for the show to start, or perhaps explore his magic and puzzle collection. Once the lights go down, his energy levels rise as the performance begins. Every single trick that Ellis performs involves a volunteer from the audience.

Ellis’ patter as he moves through his performance, and the nature of some of the tricks kept the laughs coming steadily. It’s easy to see how he won the ‘Best Close up Magician in Australia’, in fact it almost seems like a job requirement in this tiny (but very comfortable) theatre. It really was quite amazing to be so close to the performer and still not be able to work out how certain illusions were performed.

Ellis is a consummate performer. If you wish to regain the wonder you had as a child, visit the Laneway Theatre and prepare to be Astonished!"
