  • Producers of some of the best family theatre in the UK, the Mischief Theatre Company are back on stage with the completely hilarious and utterly ridiculous Magic Goes Wrong.
  • Collaborating for the first time with magical legends Penn and Teller, responsible for some of the most popular magic shows in London and the world, this Goes Wrong production will have you both mind-blown and side-split.
  • Grab your Magic Goes Wrong tickets now and get ready for a night of comedy and magical genius!


The creators of smash-hit TV series The Goes Wrong Show and theatre productions such as The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, Peter Pan Goes Wrong and, of course, The Play That Goes Wrong, have joined forces with dynamic magic duo Penn and Teller in this hilariously magical instalment of the Goes Wrong series.

After worldwide tours and side-splitting sell-outs from Australia to the USA, the original Mischief Theatre crew are back at London's West End as a group of disastrous magicians trying to raise money for a charity event in Magic Goes Wrong. In their characteristically ridiculous style, Mischief Theatre will have the whole family howling with laughter from start to finish as you watch their attempts at magic; sometimes hapless, sometimes truly extraordinary. Co-written by one of the biggest magic duos in the world, Penn and Teller, you can expect some truly mystical feats from classic dove tricks to brain-boggling mind-reading and everything in between.

If you're in the mood to ooh, ahh and ha-ha-ha, grab your tickets to this magic show London with a twist and join Mischief Theatre as they continue their legendary residency at the Vaudeville Theatre.
