Over the last 2 weeks, our college illusion show tour took us to Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maine, and Massachusetts, where we performed for several outstanding universities! Proud to say, all the shows were a HUGE success!
Our first show was at The University of Cincinnati, where over 400 college students gave us a standing ovation!!! (What a great feeling that was!) The next day, the University of Cincinnati newspaper wrote, “Eric Wilzig astounded students packed in the TUC Great Hall Tuesday with his edgy and innovative magic tricks … he kept the audience on the edge of their seats … Lizzy brought more to the show than the average magician’s assistant, who gets levitated or pushes props onto the stage. She connected with the audience in her own way and performed a number of incredible tricks.”

Then came Wilmington College, also in Ohio! The audience turnout was way more than they ever expected. The show took place in the cafeteria, which worked as a great theater when they added a nice large stage.
Next we headed to Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania! Another amazing audience turnout and rave reviews!
Then came Fitchburg State University in Massachusetts! Before the show I performed some close-up walk-around teaser magic in the cafeteria to attract students to the show. The attendance to the show was TRIPLE what they expected! Although we didn’t perform on a stage that night, the audience seated on chairs were still able to see the show very well, evidenced by the thunderous clapping after each illusion and after the show!!
Next, the show headed to Maine for the first time ever. Cold and snowy, but a great experience! Our first show was at the University of Maine Machias — and it was again met with a long standing ovation!
Lastly, we performed at the University of Maine Oronos, where we received another standing ovation to end our 2-week tour to all these beautiful campuses.
Next week we bring our magic to Rhode Island! Stay tuned!! 🙂
