Published 2:17 pm Thursday, June 27, 2024

The phrase, “a magical experience” has been used to describe many events at the The Rosa Hart Theatre at the Lake Charles Event Center. Never has it been used to write about what’s happening Friday, June 28, at 7:30 p.m.

That’s when Lance Burton, Master Magician & Friends, will entertain with his magic show suitable for the whole family. For 30 years Burton was a Vegas headliner bringing the oohs and aahs with his mix of illusions, sleight of hand, audience participation and amazing guest stars.

“I think the Lake Charles community has a love of magic and I know they will be enthralled during this one-night-only show from a world-renowned Las Vegas magician,” said Emily Gordanier, Lake Charles Event Center. She added that she will most enjoy the audience engagement, and thinks others will as well.

Also highly engaging are ticket prices that Gordanier shared. Two-for-the-price-of-one orchestra seats remain for $45, and for families and groups of four, act right away to get four tickets for $50.
