Chicago Magician Sean Masterson became interested in his craft at the age of 7 when he received a deck of T.V. Magic Cards for his birthday. At 12 he made his first public performance at the Helen Plum Library in Lombard, IL. While a teenager he went on to win Chicago's Junior Magician of the Year award.
He has always distinguished himself from other local magicians through his dual interest in magic and theater. This interest lead him to study acting at Illinois State University. While there he picked up a 2nd major in French which explains his appearances at Festimagic in Paris and The International Theater Festival of Grenoble.
Many of Sean's Chicago Theater shows have had extended runs and amazing reviews. He has appeared multiple times at Theater Wit, The Music Box Theater, The Skokie Theater, as well as the Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, MI.
His close up magic has been seen at many corporate, social events including Abbott Laboratories, The Chicago Architecture Foundation, Copia Capital and The Driehaus Museum. As a children's magician he has performed for hundreds of special events, school events and birthday parties.
