Wow! This past couple of months has been the busiest we’ve ever had in recent memory! Late September we finished up our summer performing on Disney Cruise Line with one final cruise to Alaska followed by the repositioning cruise to Hawaii, and rather than fly home we decided to stay for a week to do some sightseeing! On the Big Island we saw waterfalls, sea turtles, black sand beaches, and the worlds most active volcano at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Then on Oahu we visited Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbor and went shark cage diving (for video visit youtube.com/mistieknighttravels)! What a wonderful week and a much needed vacation after our season of shows in the Walt Disney Theatre.
In early October we performed a USO show at Creech Air Force base with Win-Win Entertainment. It was such a pleasure to share our magic with the men and women who serve our country as a thank you for their service, many of whom are about to be deployed.
Another cool experience that we had this month was hanging out the in green room AKA the “Monkey Room” after Penn & Teller’s show in Las Vegas. As always, P&T were fantastic and it was fun seeing some of the new pieces they’ve added to the show.
After the show we had a chance to chat with Teller about Wizard Wars & Fool Us, and their upcoming projects. Teller is a brilliant man, it was definitely an honor to spend some time talking with him about magic.
We also had several performances in Las Vegas this past month. We appeared in the Suncoast Variety Show at the Suncoast Hotel & Casino and also headlined with our full 65 minute illusion show at Sam’s Town Hotel & Casino. We were happy to perform to a full house and received a standing ovation!

I’m actually writing this update from our hotel room in Reno, as we’re going to be performing in Spellbinders Magic Festival this weekend. Right after that we’re off to Macau, China to being our contract at the House of Magic inside the brand new Studio City Hotel, so we’ll have lots more updates coming soon, thanks for reading! – Mistie
