"Wizards and Fools The Hallows' Fool Moon Magic Show
Scott’s “Wizards and Fools: The Hallows’ Fool Moon Magic Show wowed the
audience, as they watched each trick with bated breath. Mystical feats
This show presents not only magic, but a theatrical flair, with colorful
costumery,exuding all things mysterious and magical, an exciting spectacle
of activity, much like the hugely
popular Cirque du Soleil extravaganzas, taking us to another dimension,
even if only temporarily. Tricks of irony, sleight of hand, accompanied
by Renaissance style of song and dance,
were performed by the amazingly talented ensemble, including Larry Lederman,
Billy Revel, Cathryn MacEllerhan Saahira, Christine O’Nan, Jessica Forrest,
Duane Thorin, Jeannie Hudak, and Kassandra Corral “Sparkles."
"Wizard extraordinaire Brandon Scott intrigued the audience..."-Bonnie
Priever Curtain Up
"...entirely family friendly, the play is essentially a top notch
magic show, starring Magic Castle veteran Brandon Scott and an eclectic
supporting cast of characters.
The quirky band of performers and musicians play the extended wizard family
who are preparing for some "fool moon" rituals on Halloween night. The
fun involves time travel,
escapism, and mystical tortillas in a 90 minute show (with intermission)."

"While the mysteries of ‘how’d he do that’ and ‘where’d that come
from’ rattle your brain you find your self sitting forward and absorbing
a whimsical story about a fool’s destiny."

"A mystical and "other worldly" lark, CLEVERLY written by Brandon Scott,
who also wears the Director's hat AND plays the lead role.This is a most
unusual and "bewitching" evening of theatre".

fun and I would heartily recommend."-"Entering the theater I sat pondering
the meaning of the songs we had just heard. How did they play into the
mystery? The curtain rises and we
meet Wizardwick played with real spirit by Scott. “Wicki” introduces us
to his family of Wizards and Fools. The audience then begins to learn
of delirious effects the Hallows’ Moon
is having on his family. Time is quite out synch and this is all happening
at the time when the Wizards are coming together." - David Nairne-TheTVolution.
