"On behalf of The Magic Circle, which was so proud to have Mark Wilson MIMC as an Honorary Member, I send our sincerest condolences at such a sad time. Mark’s work was groundbreaking and opened doors and started careers for so many. He not only opened doors in the early days of TV but wedged them so firmly that way, that generations of magicians have benefitted from his initial foray into this medium. I know that his son Greg will hold the family torch strongly and proudly on stage. All our love to Nani, Greg and Mike and all the family." Noel Britten MIMC President.

Rest in peace David Maas from the sensational quick change costume act David & Dania. They both travelled the world with their remarkable act and appeared on America’s Got Talent and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. We were so very lucky to have them both appear in our 2006 Christmas Show. Our hearts go out to Dania Kaseeva. #rip
