Join us for a magical and memorable livestream event, and help support the Evanston History Center! This show is recommended for ages 13 and older.


Friday the 13th is usually considered to be bad luck, but this livestream show is a sure bet for magical, mysterious fun! Purchase Tickets Here.


The Evanston History Center and award-winning magician David Parr welcome you to The Sorcerer’s Lair, an online livestream show where history, mystery and magic converge! Get your ticket and we’ll reserve a virtual front-row seat so you can be there when David shares his favorite illusions, past and present. Objects levitate or vanish. Hidden thoughts are revealed. The weird power of the number thirteen is explored, spooky spirits drop in to visit, and uncanny coincidences occur. David even makes magic happen in your own hands! How is that possible? We can’t say. All you need to know is that David has promised to use his powers for good, and the Zoom platform will bring all the wizardry and wonder to your own screen, up close!


Magic fans will recognize David from his appearance on the hit TV show Penn & Teller: Fool Us. There, David’s magic was put to the ultimate test in front of the cameras, a live audience of hundreds, millions of TV viewers, and two very savvy Las Vegas magicians. (Spoiler alert…) David fooled them all and not only took home the coveted Fool Us trophy, but also won a guest spot in the duo’s live show in Las Vegas! 


In the hidden world of magicians, David is best known for his theatrical performing style and for his writing and teaching skills. He has authored some highly regarded books for magicians, and his thought-provoking articles about the art of magic have been featured in publications in the US, Germany, France, Australia, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Sweden. 

Tickets prices: $20 per individual; $35 for 2; $50 for a family. Please use the honor system when buying tickets.
