A Magical DebutPosted: November 11th, 2015
“Every year, we push ourselves to develop new routines and expand the show,” Christian Illusionist Brett explains. “This year, we partnered once again with WJTL and Hope International to help make poverty disappear. What better way to inspire families to make a difference in whatever way they can than by inviting my family to join me in our mission?”
Brett explained that since he was a child, he had a special box for his most magical items. When he started learning illusions, those items included cards and disappearing balls. But now the box is a bit larger. When a giant case rolled out onto the stage, the assistants appeared confused to see it was empty. However, as soon as Brett reopened the lid, Labrina and Starlin stood up to greet the audience.
“Starlin’s entire face lit up as soon as Brett started talking to him,” Labrina recalls. “Usually, Starlin is completely mesmerized by the stage lights. But when he heard his daddy’s voice, nothing else mattered. He gave Brett one of the biggest smiles I’ve ever seen. The little guy definitely loves his daddy!”

Magic in AfricaPosted: March 13th, 2015
Christian Illusionist Brett Myers and his wife Labrina recently returned from a week-long trip to Uganda, Africa. While there, they partnered with Watoto Child Care Ministries, an orphanage seeking to “raise the next generation of African leaders.”
“We were thrilled to be able to spend time on Suubi and Bbira villages,” Christian Illusionist Brett says. ”Each village has approximately 1,000 students ranging from birth to young adult. The teenagers and elementary students we performed in front of each have incredible stories, and they are a beautiful reminder of God’s ability to restore and heal in each one of our lives.”
The people of Uganda have experienced much pain and loss in recent decades due to war, political corruption, and the AIDS epidemic. Many children are left orphaned or in families that are unable to provide for their most basic needs. Watoto’s vision is to care from these children from birth to adulthood and to empower them to lead Uganda to a brighter future.
Christian illusionist Brett used his art of illusions to illustrate the truth that God has a plan for each of the student’s lives. But Illusionists Brett and Labrina agree that they were both personally challenged by the joy and thankfulness displayed in the people they met.
“The people at Watoto taught us so much more than we could ever give to them,” Christian illusionist Brett commented. ”But we were honored to be able to share our illusions and Christ’s love with the students.”
Pictures of their trip are uploaded to their media page here.
“We’re Expecting!”Posted: January 22nd, 2015
Last year was one of the busiest years Christian Illusionist Brett Myers and his wife Labrina have experienced to date. Their travels ranged from California to Maine, Texas to Minnesota, and many states in between.
“It’s been an incredibly busy year,” Labrina says, “full of reconnecting with old friends and meeting even more new ones. I have so many memories flood my mind when I remember 2014 that it’s difficult to choose a favorite.”
This year is looking to be just as exciting as the last. However, the touring model is shifting slightly as Brett and Labrina are expecting their first child the end of May.
“We’re absolutely thrilled! This isn’t the end of my time performing with Brett. However, I’ll be working behind the scenes, and we’ll be traveling with our amazing crew for a few months as we make this exciting transition into parenthood,” Labrina explains. “I grew up on the road and loved the chance to tour with my family. We’re all still incredibly close.”
Christian Illusionists Brett and Labrina already have many illusion shows confirmed for this year, and they are currently booking for this year. To request information about having them partner with you for your event, fill out a contact form here.
Making Poverty DisappearPosted: May 6th, 2014
On May 30th and 31st, Christian Illusionist Brett A. Myers will be partnering with WJTL to raise funds for HOPE International. HOPE is a Lancaster-based organization that seeks to stimulate economic growth in the poorest communities of the world through training, savings, and small loans.
The show, titled “The Wonder of HOPE,” will transport you to a world where mystery and illusions abound. May 30th and 31st, Brett will be joined onstage at The Junction Center in Manheim, PA, with a full cast, live animals, and his grandest illusions for a two-hour theatre spectacular.
Last year, Christian Illusionist Brett Myers debuted his expanded theatre show in Hagerstown, MD. Audience members saw classic illusions such as a woman floating in the air and a girl disappearing before their eyes. This year, Christian Illusionist Brett is adding even more never-before-seen acts to the show, including a new aerial silks routine in which his wife, Labrina, flies high above the audience.
Brett Myers uses his illusions to inspire wonder, yet he desires his audience to remember more than just the magic. A portion of every ticket sold will go to benefit the poverty-relieving efforts of HOPE International, to help make a positive difference in communities around the world.
Brett and Labrina Myers travel full-time performing Christian illusionists and sharing their passion for art, hope, and life. They partner with theatres, community organizations, and churches nationwide; and they currently reside in Mount Joy, PA.
Reservations can be made by calling 717-459-3701 or going to www.thejunctioncenter.com. Cost is $12 for adults, and $7 for children (there is a $3 service fee added per ticket)
