Bring your friends, family and colleagues together at a time when togetherness is desperately needed. Third generation magician and star of The Magic Parlour at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel has created an all-new magic show that delivers world-class, interactive magic and mind-reading directly to your living room screen.

Join Dennis Watkins on an upcoming Friday and Saturday night to experience that magic that has kept The Magic Parlour running for 10 straight years!

A maximum of 30 tickets will be sold for each performance and each ticket will admit one “household” or group, regardless of how many people gather to watch. All performances will take place via Zoom and require a computer with a functioning camera and microphone to participate as well as a high-speed internet connection. This show is not intended for viewing on cell phones or mobile devices. After tickets are purchased, patrons will receive an email containing instructions and a link to access the performance.

This show is engineered for group viewing and each ticket allows admission for one household/group, regardless of how many people gather to watch.
