There’s a little blurb in today’s Pacific Daily News about the Sandcastle opening a new show next week. Instead of the Las Vegas style dinner show, Fantastique, that the Sandcastle ran for the last decade, the new show will be Magic On Ice, featuring ice skating magicians and figure skaters.
My favorite quote from the story concerns the fate of the Sandcastle’s performing tigers, long a staple of the revue. “Saad said the tigers will be incorporated into ‘Magic on Ice’ though he wouldn’t say how because he doesn’t want to ruin the surprise. Saad does say that the tigers will not be ice skating.” Damn, I was really looking forward to figure skating felines.
