About Carnival of Illusion:
“Back in 2009, we really wanted to create a show that was unique to Arizona, to attract locals as well as snowbirds and tourists. One of the biggest challenges for businesses was wrapping their heads around our concept of creating an up-close entertainment experience. After seven successful seasons, I think they finally get it. Perhaps even more people will take part in an magical evening downtown,” says owner Roland Sarlot. Susan Eyed, one of the few female magicians in the world added, “We have wanted a downtown Tucson venue for many years and somehow it was as if our crystal ball cleared and all magical forces pointed us to the Grand Parlour at the Scottish Rite as the perfect fit, we're thrilled.”
