At Granite Creek Community Church
Greg has been hard at work during the COVID era to bring brand new magic to Claremont in an exciting way.
The result is an all-new show with stories and amazing illusions that get everyone involved.
Handcrafted Mysteries: Bonfire is an experimental magic show like no other.
As is expected from a Van Holsbeck show, the magic is highly engaging and interactive, but this time there is no close contact.
The performance takes place outdoors and all guests are at least 6 feet apart from each-other.
The full show is now available to watch on Youtube.
At The Claremont Forum
Handcrafted Mysteries was an immersive magic and mentalism experience featuring Greg's original pieces of magic.
The show was held weekly at The Claremont Forum (a used bookstore in downtown Claremont) for 56 weeks before COVID-19 made performances impossible.
Greg hopes to bring the show back to The Claremont Forum as soon as it is safe.
At The KAWS
Close Quarters was an up close and personal tour of some of Greg's favorite magic tricks that he's honed in his 16 years of experience. Seating was limited to 20 guests per show, to ensure that everyone had a great view and to allow for audience interaction.
As is expected from a Greg VanHolsbeck show, just about everyone had a chance to participate in the magic.
Close Quarters had a limited run at The KAWS in Arizona.
Misfits of Magic
At The Santa Monica Playhouse
Greg joined his friends Ben Benjamins and Chris Alton for a scripted fusion of magic and theater. The three performers had their own distinctive styles of magic, which were showcased individually between short interactions on stage.
The show was performed as part of the BFF Fringe Festival in 2018.
N7 Magic Night
At N7 Creamery
N7 Magic Night was a monthly magic show created by Greg's friend Jeremiah De Matteis, featuring a rotating cast of local magicians. It was free entertainment for guests and a place to for magicians to hone their craft for an audience.
Greg eventually took over operations and the show ran for a year before it's final performance in July 2017.
N7 Magic Night was Greg's first taste of producing public magic shows.
