Handcrafted Mysteries: An Evening of Magic with Greg Van Holsbeck

September 12, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Handcrafted Mysteries is an immersive magic and mentalism experience with Greg Van Holsbeck; a professional magician and member at the Hollywood Magic Castle. The show has been in development for 3 years and features Greg’s original pieces of magic.

In Handcrafted Mysteries, you won’t find rabbits, glittery suits, or large apparatus (unless you bring your own).

You will, however, find highly interactive and entertaining tricks involving skill, psychology and a few small ordinary objects.

When you first walk into Handcrafted Mysteries, the first thing you might notice is an antique wooden box that is padlocked shut. At the start of the show, the audience is asked one question:

“What’s in the box?”

“He has The entire audience for 60 minutes on their toes with laughs and gasps for the entire magical show. ” – Jonathan B.

“He kept the audience engaged the entire time of the show, sparking laughter and smiles throughout.” – Jose V
