Bring your people together for an unforgettable virtual magic show full of childlike joy and wonder.
Virtual magic shows build community and connection among people all over the world.  Creating virtual events that truly capture the imagination of your audience in spite of physical separation is no easy task.  Yet, magic is an art form uniquely positioned to reach through the screen and engage groups of all shapes and sizes.  And when your audience is engaged in realizing the impossible together, the outcome is mind-blowing.

Why Virtual Magic Shows?

When the live entertainment industry came to a screeching halt in March of 2020,  Dennis Watkins' The Magic Parlour had been running non-stop in downtown Chicago for nearly 10 years.
Even though folks couldn't gather, they had a very clear need to connect during a time they were forced to be apart.
Watkins created magic to meet this need, crafting virtual magic shows that put the audience front-and-center.  In Watkins' online shows, your guests jump onto the screen and make choices that create unbelievable outcomes...And then everyone else celebrates them.

Can It Really Be Magical On Zoom?

Absolutely!  In fact, when everyone in the gallery creates magic in their own hands, or when your mind gets read from 2,000 miles away, the result is truly jaw-dropping.

How did you hear about The Magic Parlour?


If you have not hosted a virtual event, the process can seem a bit mysterious.  Over the last year and a half, our team has learned that it's all much easier than you might imagine.

First of all, everyone attending the virtual magic show must have a computer or laptop with a working camera and microphone (quality virtual event entertainment is not engineered for viewing on phones). We'll host the event on Zoom (with true high-definition video output) or the platform of your choice. We'll even provide you with instructions and a link to send to your guests.  

From there, folks log in and your virtual magician takes the stage. The best virtual magic shows create an atmosphere of engagement, interaction and involvement for all of the guests. In this kind of live virtual entertainment, you and your guests truly become the stars of the show. Audience volunteers are displayed in picture-in-picture windows, right alongside Dennis. The technical wizardry that goes into producing virtual and online shows is remarkable, and Dennis’ team uses platforms like Zoom to create an immersive, interactive and engaging experiences that are just as magical as in-person events.
