Every year, Lance Burton hosts a luncheon at his castle for young magicians attending the World Magic Seminar. Among the magic celebrities in attendance were Johnny Thompson, Criss Angel, Siegfried, Jeff McBride, Eugene Burger and Joshua Jay.  This year, Robin Leach gave it some well deserved special attention in his Strip Scribbles column of the Las Vegas Sun. 

Master magician Lance Burton helped kick off a week of magic for the youth program of the World Magic Seminar at his castle in Henderson when he hosted a luncheon and meet-and-greet for 53 budding magicians with Siegfried Fischbacher and Criss Angel. The World Magic Seminar is based at The Orleans this week, and Lance invited many of the young magicians to his show at the Monte Carlo. It’s the 20th year of the convention in Las Vegas, with more than 1,000 attending. Lance said, “Can you imagine being a young magician coming to Las Vegas being able to meet one-on-one with some of the world’s most famous magicians? It’s a major international event.”
