A Magical New Year’s Eve!

The Magic Hour returns to the Brumder Mansion to welcome the new year!

“The magic hour” is a twilight time, somewhere between dream and wakefulness. It’s a time of mystery and mischief, when things are not as they seem. Magician David Parr is bringing magic and mystery back to the historic setting of the Brumder Mansion, with a show named after this enchanted time: THE MAGIC HOUR.

New Year’s Eve is also a magical time, when the old year is transformed into a new one. And you’ll discover that David Parr is eminently qualified to host a magical evening dedicated to amazement and wonder. He was featured on the hit TV show Penn & Teller: Fool Us, where his wizardry was put to the ultimate test in front of the cameras, a live audience of hundreds, millions of TV viewers, and two very savvy Las Vegas magicians. (Spoiler alert…) David fooled them all and not only took home the coveted Fool Us trophy but also won a guest spot in the duo’s live show in Las Vegas!

The Brumder Mansion, built in 1910, has a bit of a magical reputation of its own: the house has been the venue for a number of David Parr’s shows, and the place is reputedly haunted! “The Brumder Mansion is a perfect location for magic,” says Parr. “It has a palpable sense of history and mystery — two of my favorite things!”

What sort of mysteries can magic fans look forward to seeing in THE MAGIC HOUR? “We’ll explore a game of chance that’s mentioned more than once in the works of William Shakespeare. We’ll delve into the magic kit that sparked my interest in the art of illusion at age seven. I’ll perform the trick that fooled Penn & Teller, of course. And the rest is a surprise!”
