Making things happened for over a decade now is the maestro team of illusionists, Lawrence and Priscilla Khong. Together or individually, this father-daughter magician team has continuously brought the craft of magic and illusions up to new standards others have admired and hoped to attain. And just when you think you have seen it all, the duo comes up trumps again with new tricks up their sleeves to befuddle (and impress the hoopla out of) an overawed audience… And… impressed and entertained the people, Lawrence and Priscilla did. More importantly, they did these not just with their hands – they created magic for those who need to believe with their hearts. With community projects like Project SMILE and School of Magic, Lawrence and Priscilla have shown that magic is not merely an illusion. When they make others believe in it, true magic happens. We bid you welcome as you explore the magical world of Lawrence and Priscilla.
Watched by over 16,000 audiences in Singapore at the most premier performance venue in Singapore, The Esplanade Theatre, it is Lawrence and Priscilla’s most successful production to date. It also paved the way for the pair’s prestigious performing honour at the Chingay Singapore Parade 2009, a spectacular annual street and floats parade.
