It’s only natural for people to love magic shows as entertainment and craft to watch or perform.
Magic has a different charm from other art forms like music, dance, and film, which brings amazement and a sense of wonder to the audience.
If you happen to be one of those people who love magic shows, we’re pretty sure you’ll agree with this list of reasons.
On the other hand, if you’re someone who doesn’t see what’s there to love, prepare to be amazed!
Here are the TOP 8 reasons why magic shows are the BEST:
1. IT’S FOR EVERYONE – WE MEAN EVERYONE
Magic shows are not exclusive to a certain audience.
You can come from absolutely any background, but you can still appreciate the joy that comes with watching magical performances.
It can be a school excursion, a family day trip, a couple’s date or hang out with friends…
The possibilities are endless!
2. APPROPRIATE FOR EVERY CROWD AND VENUE
While we enjoy seeing guests at the theater, there’s more than one way for you to watch a magic show.
There’s hiring magicians, watching programs, learning magic yourself, or seeing it virtually live.
Especially nowadays where we have to social distance, magic shows are not limited to crowded audiences.
You can experience it alone or with a very small group, in person or online, just like we have at Encore! Guam through Moments of Magic.
3. FAST, EASY AND AFFORDABLE ENTERTAINMENT
Like any other form of entertainment, magic shows are so accessible.
You can easily book to watch a magic show, just like you would add something to your online shopping cart, or browsing shows on your favorite platforms.
On the plus side, there are no logistics required because you can schedule to watch a magic show during your preferred day and time, for as long (or short) as you wish.
You don’t even need to spend a lot of money on transportation to go outside, or have something “delivered” to you because thanks to technology, everything is just one click away.
4. WORKING THE BRAIN
People love mysteries.
We are drawn to things that are difficult to comprehend and rationalize.
So people who are skeptical about magic are usually keen on figuring out how a “trick” is done, without realizing that they are enjoying magic shows in their way.
For some, it’s about exploring the way they perceive things, or how they differentiate reality from illusion.
Our brains get picked, trying to come up with plausible explanations of how the magic was done.
5. IT’S MORE THAN JUST A TRICK, BUT A CRAFT
Some people may only see magic as an art of deception, illusions, and trickery, but there’s no other craft that can combine different skills all into one like magic shows can.
Magic shows have everything.
They have musical numbers, dance performances, storytelling, and even comedy, ALL-IN-ONE!
Combine it with magic skills, and you have a show like no other.
6. SOMETHING NEW AND UNIQUE
We shared an entire blog about lockdown activities to keep you entertained.
If you want to get out of your same, old (probably boring) daily routine, why not spice it up with magic?
Magic shows have a way with the mind and keeping the imagination active, which can surely spark joy in people, especially during days where you just want something different than your usual.
7. MEMORABLE MOMENTS
It’s hard to keep count of every song and movie you have watched, but we’re sure you can remember the last magic show you watched and how it made you feel.
Magic shows bring pleasant experiences that turn into precious memories.
Regardless of how old you become, it’s always a story to reminisce or share with your loved ones.
8. BRINGING CHILDLIKE INSPIRATION
Do you remember the uplifting emotion you get after watching a magic show?
Like anything and everything seems possible when you put your mind to it.
Watching magic is said to have a lasting psychological effect on its viewers, for awakening the childlike wonder in its viewers.
Magic shows just remind us about the wonderful world around us, and how to appreciate life like the innocent and carefree days.
We’re just naming a few, but there are so many other reasons to love magic shows.
