Some corny. Some awe. Wouldn't pay more than $25! Glad we went off season. Missed the end due to having to catch a bus:(

Thank you so much for attending our performance here at the Palace Theatre. It's unfortunate that you missed the end as it is one of the many highlights of the show. Hope we get the pleasure of having you here again.

Illusions of Magic was best after intermission. The crossbow talent was absolutely amazing! When he rigged up the various crossbows with a bell and shot an apple off his head it was unbelievable and he was blindfolded!

Thanks you so much for coming to the Palace Theatre. We are very fortunate to have Ben Blaque in Illusions Of Magic.

Over the years we've seen some great shows at the Palace Theatre but this year was totally different. This show was ok for a child under the age of 10 but not for anyone else. The magician tried to be a comedian but he failed. The dancing was ok but it didn't seem to go with the show.The roller skating act was ok if you are into roller skating but we bought tickets to see Illusions of Magic. It didn't happen. It's the first time I've ever walked out at intermission after paying $80.00 for two tickets to see a show.

Not worth the money. Many of the tricks can be bought through catalogs if you have the money. A couple can be bought at Broadway at the beach at the magic store. This is advertised on their website as having the world's biggest illusions. I've been to seen David Copperfield and Sigfried and Roy. This doesn't even come close. Ben Blaque is also featured in this show. Apparently there was a problem with his last trick as he didn't remove the curtain after shooting 4 crossbow bolts at his female assistant on the spinning wheel. Don't know if he popped the balloons or hit something else, I hope she is ok, they didn't say anything at the show. The theater was about 80% empty at the performance we attended.

Went to Christmas on Ice. Performers were very good. Show was enjoyable. The skaters were excellent, but thought that it would be more skating being that it was Christmas on Ice. Loved Santa.
