Master Illusionist Dirk Arthur Debuts at O’Sheas Theater
Get an up-close, in-your-face look at a majestic cast of exotic cats and be amazed by never-before-seen illusions when magician Dirk Arthur debuts his new show at O’Sheas Casino on Monday, Sept. 13, 2010, at 7 p.m.
Promising fast-paced excitement and spectacular illusions, Dirk Arthur’s Wild Magic is a high-energy show that blends comedy, dance, magic and a rare opportunity to see the largest collection of awe-inspiring large, exotic cats in Las Vegas. Audiences can experience the uncaged animals from as close as 10 feet away and no farther than 40 feet away.
“I’m thrilled to introduce the new show at O’Sheas and showcase some new tricks, including a gun with an audience member and another illusion with the seductive black panther,” said Arthur. “And, I promise the cats will be at their best performance level; that’s why feeding time is after the show!”
The show will be 60 minutes of non-stop action, seamlessly blending spine-tingling magic sequences with dramatic opportunities to witness a multitude of exotic cats in very close proximity. The assortment of cats varies on a daily basis, making each show a surprise as to which cats will appear. Among them are snow white tigers, orange- and white-striped Bengal tigers, spotted leopards, black panthers and even a rare liger. Arthur’s show also includes an educational video segment detailing his conservation and breeding program, which includes how the cats are raised and cared for by the illusionist himself.
Throughout his career, Arthur has performed extensively up and down the famed Las Vegas Strip and around the world, as well as appeared numerous times on television, including NBC’s “World Greatest Magic,” CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” and on his own primetime HDTV special “Big Cat Magic,” seen on the Animal Planet network.
Produced by Chip Lightman Entertainment, Dirk Arthur’s Wild Magic will perform twice nightly at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. in the intimate O’Sheas Theater; the show is dark on Wednesday and Friday.
