NEW YORK, April 21 -- VH1's Celebreality gets the magic
treatment with its newest reality competition series "Celebracadabra!"
Seven TV and film stars will vie for the title of "Best Celebrity Magician"

Magic Castle in Los Angeles, these celebrities will make the magic happen
... all but one disappear. Get ready to be beguiled, bewitched and baffled
as VH1's "Celebracadabra!" premieres Sunday, April 27 at 9 PM ET/PT.

transform your favorite celebrities into masters of magic. Carnie Wilson,
C. Thomas Howell, actress and comedian Lisa Ann Walter, Chris 'Kid' Reid,
Hal Sparks, ANT and the Pussycat Doll's Kimberly Wyatt will get the chance
of a lifetime to learn some of the most eye-catching and jaw-dropping
tricks from some of the most respected and noteworthy magicians in the
world. In each episode our celebs will be taught a different genre of magic
from sleight-of-hand and comedy magic to phobia magic and even large-scale
illusions. Our celebrity cast will not have to master these tricks alone as
they will be paired up with renowned magicians including: Asi Wind, Rocco,
Silly Billy, Murray, David Regal, Derek Hughes and Simon Lovell. The
magicians will do their best to teach the celebs several tricks a week when
it usually takes years to master just one. The competitors face tough
crowds and a panel of judges that includes master magicians Max Maven, Jeff
McBride and host Jonathan Levit who will determine which celebrities
advance to the next round and get a shot at facing off in a battle of
ultimate illusions in Vegas for a grand prize of $100,000 from
