Illusions of Magic - A Must See!
If there is one show to see in Myrtle Beach, the Palace Theater’s Illusions of Magic is it! With magic, dance, comedy, and danger acts, this show really does deliver edge-of-your-seat entertainment for the whole family.
The Palace Theater’s Illusions of Magic showcases the unbelievable talent of world-renowned magician, Peter Gossamer.

When it’s all finally over, the audience can hang around after the show to have their picture taken on stage with the tiger and enjoy meeting with the full cast outside in the lobby.
