Illusionist Salazar returning to Dickens


Dickens Parlor Theatre will host Anthony Salazar and his comedy, intriguing illusions and tricks, aimed at awakening the magic of people’s inner child. He will grace Dickens stage Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, March 7-9, beginning at 7 p.m.

Born in the Philippines, Salazar moved to the U.S. when he was 10, and was soon after introduced to the world of magic for the first time. He discovered the magical realm, in which he completely immersed himself. When he was 13, he lived near a magic shop. Spending countless hours there, he learned and honed his magic skills.

After high school, he entered full-time into a professional career as a magician, and has since continued to entertain audiences of all ages. His career has led him to perform in theaters, resorts and casinos worldwide, including at Trump Plaza. On top of that, he’s also a magic consultant for television and commercials.

Salazar’s performances are a reflection of his adventurous life. He bungee-jumped off the Macau Tower and the Stratosphere Las Vegas and implores: “Why live on the edge when you can jump off it?”

Although bungee-jumping won’t be included in the repertoire at Dickens, representatives said will still be exhilarating entertainment with encouraged audience participation.

“Anthony is a young magician, but don’t let his youth fool you. His stage presence and performance experience proves that creating and believing in magic has no age limit.”

Tickets to see Salazar at the Dickens Parlor Theatre on March 7-9 can be purchased by phone at (302) 829-1071, or online at www.dptmagic.com.
