Halloween Magic Review

This is going to be a fun night of magic, comedy, gore, and fright! We expect to have a review type show with 6-10 performers doing short shows in keeping with the theme and celebrating the holiday.

A full list of the performers will be announced closer to the date of the show as their holiday schedules permit.

Devlin

Devlin

Devlin’s performances can be traced to his South American roots, offering magic with a Latin flair.  Weaving his mysteries with the air and confidence of a matador. Among his many awards, he received the Parent Assembly of the Society of American magicians highest honor, “Magician of the Year.” He has appeared (and disappeared!) on stages from Hollywood’s famed Magic Castle, to headlining in four of his own shows at Bally’s, Claridge and Sands Casinos in Atlantic City and most recently at the Wyndham Crystal Palace Casino in Nassau, Bahamas. He landed a feature appearance playing himself on ABC’s daytime drama “All My Children” leading to national exposure.

He is the star attraction on the Holland America Cruise Line, and his many performances onboard luxury ocean liners like the Queen Elizabeth II have taken him to all seven continents and around the seven seas. Devlin’s attention to all details of his performance combine to give indelible impressions of flawless movement, fabulous music, and a highly professional interpretation of magic.
