"Now, more importantly, the accolades. The highlight of the last two days of the convention, I felt, was Ross Skiffington's lecture on Showmanship and Presentation. Well structured, well presented and full of accurate professional advice. It was a delight to listen to a true professional well rounded in all aspects of theater. Young performers (I went through it too!) are only interested in magic and the latest effects. They lose sight of the fact that magic is only a vehicle for entertainment. The trick counts for absolutely nothing. I hope they listened to, absorbed and take heed of Ross's valuable advice. Possibly the most important point that Ross made is that there is no better training for a magician than to do courses in drama and take part in amateur theatrical productions. Bravo Ross.Well done!" Bernard Reid - MAGICANA Volume 56 No.335
“I can’t tell you what a happy night we enjoyed there. It was absolutely wonderful and a joy to see table after table succumb to the enchantment of the clutch of magicians working the room in the first half of the evening only to then be knocked out by the finesses and genius of your appearance. I loved the little theatre. What an absolute luxury to be able to watch a performance from such close quarters."
Peter Burch - Victorian Manager Musica Viva at The Magic Mansion
"Thank you for your 'magical' efforts in making the Melbourne production of Beauty and the Beast a success. We could not have done it without you. Congratulations!"
