Master of Masks

McBride magically materializes from a cluster of floating sparks of light. Commanding center stage, he conjures forth exotic and enchanting masks. Masks appear, disappear, float and change color in a dazzling display of sophisticated sorcery, with an explosive surprise ending. Recently featured on NBC's The World's Greatest Magicians.

Unbelievable!

McBride reminds us that each one of us is a magician, and proves it. With the assistance of a volunteer from the audience, McBride transforms a torn paper into over 50 feet of colorful ribbon. A high-energy comedy sequence, involving the entire audience.

Sorcerer's Apprentice

Sorcerer's Apprentice

One specially selected audience member joins McBride onstage, for five minutes of side-splitting comedy. Plucking a seemingly endless stream of coins from the air, McBride actually teaches the volunteer how to pull money from thin air. Interactive comedy magic at its best.

Asian Mysteries

Asian Mysteries

Transformed miraculously into a Kabuki Lion Warrior, McBride performs with the exotic treasures of the Eastern Magi - silk ribbons, paper butterflies, fans, and giant spider streamers. Martial arts, dance, and pantomime blend into a whirlwind of exotic sorcery. Kabuki magic!

King of Cards

McBride is unquestionably the new King of Cards - the world's foremost exponent of sleight of hand using playing cards. More than a virtuoso technical feat, his "King of Cards" is a bravura celebration of his mastery and showmanship. Cards sprout from his fingertips, spin from hand to hand, and ultimately soar out to fill the air above the audience's astonished heads. Real magic!

Drums of the Rainforest

Drums of the Rainforest

Since the dawn of time, drums have been used to add power and majesty to spectacular productions. From a giant, empty Taiko Drum, McBride conjures forth the spirits of the Earth. Trees come to life, and dance about the stage. A flower slowly and visibly transforms into a living woman. A company of four fills the stage with live drumming, dancing and astounding grand illusion.

Trial by Fire

Trial By Fire

A spectacular production piece in which the the magician is put to his ultimate test, a trial by fire. Dancers with giant fiery banners fill the stage with an acrobatic display of flash and color. A Hindu dancer enters a tiny basket, hardly large enough to contain her. Pierced by numerous swords and spears, the audience wonders can she survive this ordeal...she does, to the audience’s delight. How? It remains a mystery.

Floating On Air

Floating on Air

An exotic and mysterious Asian production number involving McBride and three Kabuki dancers. This illusion sequence begins with McBride transforming himself into the classic Japanese Kabuki Lion Warrior. The exotically costumed McBride then conjures forth a Kabuki Butterfly dancer with 10 foot gossamer wings. In this classic Japanese fairy tale, the Lion and the Butterfly, McBride proceeds to levitate the Butterfly Dancer 10 feet off the ground, using only the power of his magic fan.

Dream of the Silver Rings

McBride brings a new appreciation to this classic of magic with his high energy, martial arts and Kabuki inspired handling. Magic and grand spectacle as only McBride can perform them.

Houdini!

Houdini!

In the first half of the 20th century, no performer captured the public imagination as did Harry Houdini. This grand-illusion/ escape challenge is a tribute to the master of magic and showmanship whose name is still practically synonymous with "magician." Delivered in a light-hearted manner, McBride involves the audience at each step of the piece.

Transformation

Transformation

McBride’s signature "total magic theatre" work, in which he struggles with unseen forces behind a myriad of masks, to strip away the confinements of the many roles we all must play, and achieve freedom at last.
