PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. – The Magic Beyond Belief ™ show starring internationally-acclaimed magician Darren Romeo, has opened its first magical Merry Christmas show 3 p.m. Mondays and Fridays, 10:30 a.. Tuesdays-Saturdays and 8 p.m. Sundays now through Dec. 31 at The Smoky Mountain Opry™ Theater.
Romeo, the first and only protégé of Master Magicians Siegfried and Roy, will pay tribute this season to those who inspired him: Bobby Darin (for whom he was named), Harry Houdini, Harry Blackstone Jr., Siegfried and Roy, and famed American ringmaster P.T. Barnum. He will also showcase arrangements from his favorite Broadway melodies. This full, two-hour “Magic Beyond Belief™ Christmas” show features stunning illusions, hilarious comedy and vocal performance.
Before coming to Pigeon Forge, Romeo previously performed in his own show as “Siegfried & Roy presents: Darren Romeo” at the Mirage in Las Vegas and internationally. He has also performed at Caesar’s Palace and the Flamingo Hilton in Las Vegas and at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood.
One of the most awarded magicians in the history of magic, Romeo has garnered an extensive list of accolades including: two-time “Show of the Year” winner from the Branson Critic Association; “Magician of the Year” from the Magic Castle, The Academy of Magical Arts, Inc.; the prestigious Merlin Award for “Entertainer of the Year” from the International Magician’s Society; and the Milbourne Christopher Award for “Notable Contributions to the Art of Magic” from The Society of American Magicians.
In addition to all of the large illusions people would expect to see on stage from Siegfried and Roy’s protégé, Romeo also performs close-up magic and sleight of hand tricks in the show. Romeo carries on Harry Blackstone Jr.’s legacy by performing his famous “Floating Light Bulb” Illusion. He is the only magician in the world granted permission from the Blackstone family to perform this tribute.
Tickets are $34.95 for adults and $9.95 for children ages 3-11. Children under 3 are admitted free.
