Who doesn’t love a great magic and illusion show? From a first look at P&O Cruises’ new magic and illusion show, it will, as its name suggests, be ASTONISHING.

The revolutionary show, produced by BAFTA-winning presenter and entertainer Stephen Mulhern and performer Jonathan Wilkes, will be premiered on three P&O Cruises ships Britannia, Azura and Ventura this summer.

Astonishing: Show produced by Stephen Mulhern and Jonathan Wilkes

Stephen said: “Astonishing is a show like no other and I get goosebumps just thinking about it. Producing this show with Jonny is the culmination of a dream for me. I obviously don’t want to give anything away so all I will say is that it does exactly what it says on the tin and the audience should be prepared to be amazed.”

Astonishing combines the production talents of Stephen and Jonathan with the spectacular dance moves of leading choreographer Paul Domaine and the mind-blowing trickery of master illusionist Guy Barrett.

Jonathan added: “It’s been a long time in the making but the show is now ready and we know that it’s certainly going to be astonishing. We’ve partnered with some of the best in the business – Guy Barrett who is Mr Illusion and Paul Domaine who has worked with Kylie Minogue, Elton John and Stevie Wonder – and we’ve come up with a show that is truly ground-breaking.”

P&O Cruises senior vice president Paul Ludlow said: “As its name implies, Astonishing is an extraordinary and visionary show that is unlike anything seen before on a UK stage. Bringing together the world of magic, dance, illusion and mystery, and using the latest technology of the giant LED screens in the theatres, the show will captivate our guests and have them tapping their toes whilst gasping in disbelief as they are wowed with dazzling dance moves and seemingly impossible feats.

“With plenty of surprises for the audience it takes entertainment to an entirely new level and is truly game-changing.”
