PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. – “Magic Beyond Belief™” starring internationally-acclaimed magician Darren Romeo is now reopen, after being closed for a four-month production hiatus, Tuesday to Friday now through December in The Smoky Mountain Opry™ Theater .
The magical show includes approximately $250,000 in upgrades, most of which are in production elements. The move back to the Smoky Mountain Opry™ is to enable Romeo to perform larger illusions on a bigger stage and allows for the return of large animals to the show. Romeo will also perform close-up magic and sleight of hand tricks in the new show. Romeo will carry 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.
Romeo, the protégé of Master Magicians Siegfried and Roy, pays tribute this season to those who inspired him: Bobby Darin (for whom he was named), Harry Houdini, Harry Blackstone Jr., Siegfried and Roy, famed American ringmaster P.T. Barnum, and military heroes. He showcases arrangements from his favorite Broadway melodies.
This two-hour “Magic Beyond Belief™” starring Darren Romeo production features illusions, special effects, comedy, and a vocal performance. Romeo does new parody celebrity impersonations including Darius Rucker, Lady Gaga and Dolly Parton.
“Magic Beyond Belief™” at the Smoky Mountain Opry™ Theater is performed this season in the 8 p.m. evening time slot until Friday, March 2 when the Smoky Mountain Opry™ “Feel The Music” show opens. After that, the magic show will be performed in the afternoon matinee slot at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It will also be performed at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
