Westgate Resorts announces the return of one of magician Dirk Arthur and his renowned show, Dirk Arthur Wild Magic. Scheduled to open at the Westgate Cabaret inside Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino on November 15, Dirk will bring a new version of his show that features illusions and magic with comedy, sleight of hand and rare, exotic cats.

“I’m thrilled to return to Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino and share my magic, now especially up-close-and-personal, with guests of all ages,” said Arthur.

Dirk Arthur Wild Magic is not only suitable for families, but great for adults too, and will feature audience participation, hilarious magic with a live white duck named “Aflack,” a bobcat, and a rare snow leopard. Dirk’s known for his work with animals and guests will even get a peek into his world of conservation and raise awareness on the humane care and preservation of wildlife.

Dirk Arthur Wild Magic will be performed Wednesday through Sunday inside the Westgate Cabaret. Arthur last opened his show at the Westgate in the International Westgate Theatre on August 24, 2015.


Arthur has been featured on national television shows including NBC’s “World Greatest Magic,” “The Late Show with David Letterman”, and his own primetime special “Big Cat Magic” on Animal Planet.

Arthur has been performing around the world for 30 years. His original illusions included a floating car, and he is recognized as the first magician in history to make a helicopter appear. His natural affinity for animals immediately came into effect in his act as he worked with rabbits, doves, large birds (such as emus and ostriches), and eventually, large exotic cats. His family of big cats currently holds no equal in the performing world and includes white, orange and snow white tigers; African and snow leopards; ligers and a bobcat.
