Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) May 20, 2011
South Carolina's largest festival entertainment complex, Broadway at the Beach (http://www.BroadwayattheBeach.com), will host a dynamic illusionist as part of its summer entertainment series. Throughout June and July, “The Magic of Carl Michael” will take center stage five nights a week at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on the stage at Heroes Harbor, located next to Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. Michael will intrigue and engage people of all ages with his showcase of large illusions and other family-oriented tricks.
In addition to “The Magic of Carl Michael,” Broadway at the Beach will soon announce another act on the Heroes Harbor stage beginning August 1 and running through Sept. 2. The Tuesday Night Summer Show of fireworks will begin May 31 and run throughout the summer until August 30. The spectacular fireworks presentation will take place every Tuesday at 10 p.m. over Lake Broadway.
Some of Carl Michael's illusions include Wonders of the Sandz, the sword box and Houdini’s Metamorphosis. The show will last about 30 minutes and is free of charge to the public.
Michael resides in Myrtle Beach but is originally from Portsmouth, Ohio. He gained interest in magic at the young age of five and began performing at eight with the ball and vase trick. Since that time, he has performed in more than 20 states across the country, some of which included private shows for numerous A-list celebrities as well as some of America's top corporate companies. Michael has served as the opening night entertainment at the Hootie and the Blowfish Monday After The Masters Tournament for three years, is a lifetime member of The International Magicians Society, and performs an average of 150 shows per year.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the summer entertainment lineup at Broadway at the Beach this year and look forward to being able share my love of magic with all the visitors of Broadway,” Michael said. “Broadway at the Beach is the number one attraction in Myrtle Beach, so my decision to perform here for the summer was an easy one to make.”
