Looking for something different to doo those beach trips? This is it! Fun magic show, terrific performances, fair prices. This is a small, intimate theatre with rows of straight back chairs so don't think you are going to have a big theater experience. What you get is much better, as though the show or performance is just for you!

Magic was very impressive and the quality of the whole show and theater interior was equally so. The exterior is just okay, but don't let that fool you. Rich Bloch, the owner, was the performer that night and was terrific. Desserts in the parlour afterward, accompanied by Mr. Bloch doing awesome close magic, were delicious. A great addition to our...

Magic is a joy magic well done doubly so! This was our first visit but it will not be our last. Magic is at its best up and in this 60 seat venue no seat is far away. Rich Bloch the owner serves as MC and the warm up act and clearly was a master of his craft. Dave Cox,... More

The Dickens Theatre is located in Millville Delaware, 15 min west of Bethany Beach. It's nestled in a treed lot, off the road and easy to miss. There is a cool purple antique car parked under the trees in front of what appears to be a small red house and a sign by the street. The small house is actually... More

This weekend, I found my way to the Dickens Parlour Theater for the first time. I was there to see "A Greater Loesser Moment," a musical revue of ~two dozen of Frank Loesser's compositions. The music was terrific - a credit to both Mr. Loesser's talents and to those of the performers. The theater itself was delightful as well: Its... More

In a Victorian home that's been converted to a small theater you'll be dazzled and amazed by the quality of the magicians and mentalists. What fun in how they incorporate the audience and make everyone feel welcome and appreciated. Adults and kids will love it.

The Dickens Parlour Theatre is a small (50 seat?) magic theater just outside Bethany. During the summer months they hold daily show with a revolving cast of top notch magicians. Shows are great for the whole family - not too focused on the kids that adults can't have fun - and not adult where you worry that it's inappropriate for... More

We drove from Rehoboth with a 9 & 11 year old to see this show. All of us loved it! We were completely entertained, enjoyed the showmanship and were amazed at the tricks. We especially liked the after show where the magicians do slight of hand tricks with cards ( at least that is what they used when we were... More

Asi Wind was the most unbelievable Magician we have ever seen. His "tricks" defied logic and were absolutely amazing! We spend most of the evening with our mouths open and a puzzled look on our face. His show after the main show - which was held in the Parlor - was even more unbelievable. This is with him sitting a... More

Dickens Parlour Theatre is the best hidden gem at the beach! My family and I have been coming to Bethany for the past 4 years and just discovered it. It's set back amongst trees and may not look like much from the road but looks can be deceiving. It has an elegant, old-school Vaudeville feel to it. The theatre is... More
