LAS VEGAS, NV (August 20, 2015) — With a thrilling array of spectacular illusions featuring majestic cats, Westgate Resorts announces a new show with master magician Dirk Arthur. Dirk Arthur Wild Magic, scheduled to debut at the International Westgate Theater inside Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino on Monday, August 24, is a fast-paced show that interweaves comedy with breathtaking big cat magic, beautiful dancers and large-scale illusions.
“Debuting Wild Magic and having the opportunity to perform with my cats on the same stage that Elvis once did is a dream come true for me in Las Vegas,” said Arthur. “I’m excited to unveil electrifying new illusions and share the experience with guests of all ages at Westgate Las Vegas!”
Arthur has long been a leading advocate for the preservation of endangered species and for the humane and proper care of all animals. During the show, audiences will experience Arthur’s love for his animals as they are treated with the utmost respect and gentleness. Arthur uses his platform to raise funds for various animal care and conservation programs. In fact, a portion of merchandise sales are donated to organizations that promote awareness and education regarding the importance of wildlife preservation.
“We are excited to announce Dirk Arthur Wild Magic to Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino,” said David Siegel, Founder and CEO of Westgate Resorts. “Adding family friendly entertainment of this caliber will provide another opportunity for our guests to create magical memories for years to come.”
Show times are Monday through Saturday at 4 p.m. and tickets are available for $90 (VIP), $60 (Preferred) and $50 (GA), plus taxes and fees. Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 31 and are available at the Westgate Box Office or by calling (800) 222-5361.
About Dirk Arthur
Arthur has been performing around the world delighting audiences of all ages for 30 years. His original illusions included a floating car, and he is recognized as the first magician in history to make a helicopter appear. This helicopter illusion has since been widely copied and has become a staple of many other magicians, although none can perform it quite as well as Arthur. He has even taken the illusion a step further now by causing it to vanish and reappear, hovering over the audience.
His natural affinity for animals immediately came into effect in his act as he worked with rabbits, doves, large birds such as emus and ostriches, and eventually, large exotic cats. His family of big cats currently holds no equal in the performing world and includes white, orange and snow white tigers; African and snow leopards; ligers and a bobcat.
His national television appearances include NBC’s “World Greatest Magic,” “The Late Show with David Letterman” and his own widely acclaimed primetime special “Big Cat Magic” on Animal Planet. For more information on Dirk Arthur, visit dirkarthur.com.
