Wallace has appeared America’s Got Talent, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, as well as FOXtv’s Houdini & Doyle’s World of Wonders. 

“We are thrilled to bring this kind of world-class talent to Sleepy Hollow, the country’s top Halloween season destination,” said Rob Schweitzer, Vice President of Communications & Commerce for Historic Hudson Valley. “Featuring interactive, jaw-dropping illusions, the show is steeped in our region’s folklore. I predict this will be the fall season’s hot ticket.”

Local beer and wine and fall-themed cocktails and mocktails will be available to purchase before the show.
