Award-winning illusionists Chris and Ryan Zubrick announced on June 14 that tickets to Zubrick Magic Theatre are now officially for sale. The first performance open to the public will be Thursday, July 29 at 7pm.  Tickets are $40.00 per person, plus taxes and fees for ages 4 and older. Children ages 3 and under are free when seated on an adult’s lap. A limited number of VIP packages offer premium front-row seating for two people, two beverages, one popcorn, and one special gift for $117.00 plus taxes and fees.

“The dream of opening our own magic theater has been years in the making, from traveling the country to find the perfect location to constructing the stage and ordering curtains,” said Chris Zubrick.  “We were drawn to the vibrant arts and entertainment community in St. Petersburg and felt like opening our theater here would be a refreshing addition to the local scene.

“We have put so much time and love into this theater. We couldn’t be more excited to finally perform again, something we’ve been doing since we were children,” added Ryan Zubrick. Originally from Michigan, where they performed growing up, Chris and Ryan met while pursuing their magic careers and decided to take their show overseas on the islands of Saipan and Guam. After performing more than 7,500 shows for more than 2 million people, they decided to bring their astonishing brand of magic and grand illusion back to the mainland, more specifically to St. Petersburg.

Zubrick Magic Theatre’s 70-minute performances will take place every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts promptly at 7 p.m. Beverages including beer and wine and snacks are available for purchase in the lobby prior to the show. Tickets are available at a discount for groups of 20 or more. Private magic performances, holiday parties, and matinees can also be scheduled for groups in the 90-seat theater.

A new magic experience in St. Petersburg

That’s right, y’all, it’s a grand spectacle prepping for an appearance in one of the most burgeoning districts in the Sunshine City.

The addition of a new family-friendly show in an ever-growing district is just another feather in the cap of the Sunshine City’s small business growth.
