Producers of upcoming West End magic show Impossible are on the look out for child performers to join the cast.

The show, which opens at the Noël Coward Theatre later this month (24 July 2015), is billed as "the biggest magic show in decades".

Children aged 8-12 years old are invited to make a video saying why they love magic and why they want to take part in the production. The video must last no more than 30 seconds and be sent to [email protected] by 12pm on Monday 6 July.

The winner will play a character during the opening of the show who is a young child, dreaming of one day becoming a world class magician.

Impossible is directed by Anthony Owen and features TV escapologist Jonathan Goodwin, mind-reader Chris Cox, sorceress Katherine Mills, magician Ben Hart, digital magician Jamie Allen, sleight-of-hand artist Ali Cook and illusionist Luis de Matos.

Producer Jamie Hendry said: "This is a rare opportunity for a budding magician to join a team of world-class illusionist on stage."
