About Carnival of Illusion:


Back in 2009, we really wanted to create a special show that was unique to Arizona, to attract locals as well as snowbirds and tourists. We love that we can create an up-close magical experience with this ancient art form that has guests returning again and again,” 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. It’s the perfect fit, we’re thrilled.”
