World of Magic at the Hilo Palace Theater

The Hilo Elks Lodge 759 will present its annual World of Magic show from 11am to 12:30pm at downtown Hilo’s Palace Theater on Sunday, December 6.

world of magic

This year’s special performer will be international award magician Bruce Meyers. Based in Hawaii and Washington, Bruce’s masterful stage presence and his warm, benevolent, and funny personality quickly connects with his audience, compelling them to become part of the fun, wonder and magic.

Together with wife and long-time stage partner Jennifer, the Meyers will fill Hilo’s Palace Theater with astonishing wonder. They will perform ancient magic from India such as the Basket of Immortality. It will feature aerial dancer Luna Sophia as she ascends from the basket to perform her beautiful aerial silk artistry.

During the show, Bruce may ask the audience to hold on tight to a solid oak table as it floats around the stage, shower them with real flowers, or, if they’re not careful, perhaps dozens of eggs.

“The noblest art is that of making others happy. That’s real magic. It’s what we do” said the Meyers. As the Magician of the Year by the Northwest Ring of Fire in Seattle, Comedy Magician of the Year in Vancouver, Canada, and 1st Place In Stage by the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians, Bruce and company will spread happiness and joy to remind the audiences that, despite all of its faults, the world is still a breathtaking, beautiful, and mysterious place.

At the end of the show, expect Santa to make a special appearance.

Sponsored by the Elks National Foundation and community members, admissions to this performance is free, and donations are welcome.
