What you'll do

This is not a stage show. This is not a children's show. This is a close-up and personal adult magic experience that you will remember for the rest of your life!

You arrive at the restaurant and are shown to your table. After ordering drinks, the magician appears and begins the show - a private, close-up, magic show - just for you and the others at your table! You will experience the magic, right before your very eyes, and often even in your own hands!

Bending metal with our minds, solid objects penetrating through other solid objects, things suddenly appearing and disappearing - these are just a few of the magical miracles that will surprise and amaze you!

You will be captivated by the magic created using ordinary objects such as string, ropes, playing cards, coins, forks, rubber bands, and maybe even a rabbit or two!

If you have enjoyed watching magic on TV, you will love the exciting feelings of wonder, amazement, and laughter that you will experience during this unique and personal, live, private performance.

Plus, in the last 15 minutes of the show, I will teach you a simple trick that YOU can perform to blow your friends' minds!

This experience is best enjoyed with more than one person, so bring a friend or two!

Current Queensland COVID regulations do not require masks to be worn, however, we will do whatever makes you most comfortable.

Hi! I am Sean Tretheway - The Noosa Magician. I have been performing as a full-time professional sleight-of-hand magician for over 35 years in restaurants and nightclubs, at corporate events and weddings.

I have been a member of and performed at The Magic Castle in Hollywood, California (The Academy of the Magical Arts) for over 35 years.

My specialty is sophisticated close-up magic, which I have gathered from all over the world, specifically crafted for adult audiences.

Celebrities including Hugh Jackman, Olympia Dukakis, Dannii and Kylie Minogue, Glenn Robbins, Jimeoin, Barry Humphries,  Jamie Oliver, Tara Moss, and Tina Arena have all been awed by my magical skills, as have tens of thousands of holidaymakers and locals in my hometown of Noosa where I have been The Noosa Magician since 1984.

Very amazed by the mind blowing magic and entertainment that Sean provided. Both my husband and I loved it and would recommend to our friends and family. Glad we picked the private session!

I brought my newly proposed to fiance and Sean did not disappoint. He wowed her and me with a lot of magic/tricks. Being up close and personal, you get a greater sense of awe when they are pulled off so well. 100% would recommend to anyone looking for a unique, never forgettable date in Noosa.

Sean is obviously a genius! His Magic is amazing & we were totally entertained for a whole hour. Its an experience not to be missed! For a start, the restaurant, Bombetta, is a great little downtown Noosa venue. The staff make sure no one is waiting for a drink or water top up, yet never distract you from trying to work out how the hell this man, Sean, does those tricks. Simple looking ones at first, until everyone in our group was gasping with awesomeness. Sean demonstrated lots of amazing magic and shared stories that made us feel like his best friends. Truly an enjoyable, sophisticated and magical experience and we all went home with a gift - how to do one of his tricks - & you know the fork bending trick? Those forks are solid metal! How does he do it? I will definitely be going to another magical experience with Sean in Noosa.

Sean is a very clever prestidigitator! (Look it up.) His sleight of hand is amazing. He kept us entertained for an hour and not only did he make coins, cards etc disappear, he made the hour disappear. I would certainly recommend Sean to entertain your group no matter what the occasion.

I was mystified, bemused and amazed with "the close up magic experience" with Sean. He had me laughing out loud one moment and scratching my head at others. He has a warm, personable approach and magical expertise which set the mood for rest of my evening.

Sean was amazing! Such a great experience and so happy we found this to do on our little weekend getaway. The restaurant was easy to find with parking on a side street. Highly recommend!
