Las Vegas, NV -- This year marks magician Rick Thomas' seven-year anniversary at the Tropicana Resort & Casino. As the show, The Magic of Rick Thomas, heads into its eighth year, Rick continues with his great stage presence, weaving magic, music, dance, and exotic animals into a seamless spectacle.

As Thomas continues to take the stage at the Tropicana, he is constantly updating his elaborate afternoon production. His most popular illusions today include, "The Incredible Shrinking Tiger," where Rick actually shrinks a 500 pound royal white Bengal tiger into a baby cub; "Street Beat," an illusion involving Rick appearing from nowhere sitting atop a full-size motorcycle; and the ever popular "Levitation," in which he sends his assistant floating into thin air only to fly up and meet her and find that she has disappeared.

Thomas makes his dreams a reality every afternoon for delighted audiences during his show, The Magic of Rick Thomas, at the Tropicana Resort & Casino's Tiffany Theatre at 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. daily, except Sundays. Ticket prices are $18.95 (table) and $23.95 (booth) plus tax and surcharge and are available at the Tropicana box office or by logging on to our website at www.tropicanalv.com.
