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" when they attempt to learn and perform tricks normally left to the professionals. From the streets to an elementary school to the legendary 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.

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 Ellusionist.com.
