Jason Bishop:  Believe in Magic

From Fleetwood, Pennsylvania 

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but this show is so delightful! Back by popular demand after last season's sold-out run, Jason Bishop returns with even more tricks (and wry one-liners) up his sleeve. With new acts designed especially for The New Victory—including a dumbfounding disappearance onstage and an amazing appearance in the audience—BELIEVE IN MAGIC will convert the most cynical of skeptics in this mind-blowing marvel. And when Jason magically makes it snow, you'll leave thinking, what a show, what a show, what a show!

"A master when it comes to all things involving the art of illusion"The Today Show "There's real elegance and even wit in the precision of his gestures, the agility of each finger."The New York Times "With disappearing acts, bar-bending stunts, and card tricks, the show was captivating and entertaining for every age." Northern Review

Getting to Know Jason Bishop

The creator of the first (and now second!) magic show to perform at The New Victory Theater, Jason Bishop became enamored with magic as a kid in long-term foster care. He credits local libraries for sparking his interest in magic and helping him become the successful illusionist he is today. Jason isn't returning alone. Both his assistant, Kim Hess, and his canine companion, Gizmo (or Dog #97), are eager to ring in the holiday season at The New Victory Theater!

Did You Know?

  • Kim has won well over 100 awards for baton twirling, including a first place trophy at America's Youth on Parade—also known as the "World Series of Baton Twirling."
  • Jason performs an average of 150 shows a year!
  • The company has performed magic and illusions on six continents and in 48 states.
  • Jason can bounce playing cards 50 feet off of the stage floor!
