Noah & Heather Maximum Magic Show
We all know that 30A Florida is a magical place with white sand beaches and Caribbean blue Gulf waters, but there is another type of magic afoot these days. Noah and Heather Wells have moved from their longtime location at Gulf World Marine Park in PCB to a new venue. Specifically, they are now performing at FudPucker’s on Okaloosa Island which is in-between Destin and Fort Walton Beach, FL. More importantly, the Noah & Heather Maximum Magic Dinner Show is just a short drive from the 30A corridor. We recently had the awesome opportunity to sit down with Noah to learn about how he got his start in magic, what the show is all about and some of the awards that the husband and wife team have won.
A Magical Beginning
It’s abundantly clear that Noah is a passionate magician who truly believes in the joy that illusions and magic bring to others. Noah has been interested in magic for as long as he can remember. At age seven he took a trip with his grandparents to Branson, Missouri that would have a long-lasting impact on the course of his life. The magician called him up on stage to inspect a mirror and from that day on he was hooked. Noah went home and immediately tried to do magic tricks, but admitted he wasn’t very good. As he got older he got more serious about learning magic and studying different forms of illusions. What started as a hobby, quickly developed into a burning passion.
At the age of 14, Noah decided to take up a summer job in Branson, MO working for the illusionist that inspired him years earlier. That summer job ended up being a five-year apprenticeship as he studied magic and illusions day-in and day-out. Years later there was an open position in Panama City Beach, Florida for a magician at the Gulf World Marine Park. With years of training under his belt, the time was right to make the move and he has been living in the FL Panhandle ever since. Of course, every magic man must have a magic woman by his side…
That Magic Moment
The story of how it became the “Noah & Heather Show” goes something like this… Heather is originally from Louisiana but it was in Branson, Missouri where the couple met. Noah was looking for a “magician’s assistant” for his new act and had taken out an advertisement in the local newspaper. Heather’s father saw the AD and thought she just might be perfect for the job given her pageantry and dance background. Heather was hired and began working with Noah. Shortly after that, the Panama City Beach opportunity popped up for Noah and it looked like their time together was over before it really began. As fate would have it, however, her father was experiencing health issues at the time that required the family move to Destin, Florida. The Heather and Noah act was back on, they started dating and the rest is history!
3 Time Merlin Award Winners
The duo was named Merlin Award winners in consecutive years (2011 and 2012). Just this year they took home their 3rd Merlin Award for Best Entertainers! The International Magicians Society is the world’s largest magic organization with over 37,000 members. The Merlin Award is the highest award given in the world of magic which makes winning it just once, let alone 3 times, a really it a big deal! Noah Wells is also the youngest magician in the USA to ever receive the Merlin Award.
Passion and Practice
Noah believes that if you’re passionate about something, and work hard at it, you can achieve your goal. His 3 Merlin Awards and countless 5-star reviews confirm that belief. We asked him what advice he would give to people just starting out that want to learn the craft and his response was as follows… ”Practice, Practice, Practice. Just like anything else… if you want to get better at something you have to practice.” You’ll need something to practice with and for that, we recommend going to NoahWells.com and purchasing one of his magic kits. Noah also recommended utilizing YouTube as a FREE training tool. On YouTube, you’ll find hundreds of fantastic “how to” videos that will jump-start your magic career.
Perfect Family Night Out
The Noah & Heather Maximum Magic Dinner Show is an action-packed 75 minutes of World Class Illusions, Comedy, Mind-blowing Mental-ism, Audience Participation and Special Effects. Their show is the perfect way to spend a fun night out together as a family. Noah and Heather take time after each show to sign autographs and meet their guests.
