Outstanding illusionist and showman. Worth seeing.
-- Henry Escaravage - Prattville, AL
The rick thomas show was without a doubt the best show in branson. We went to three different shows and the rick thomas show was like watching a las vegas show (professional). All the other shows we saw were a little on the amateur side.
-- Marilyn Martin - Victoria, Texas
Rick thomas not only puts on an excellent show but even steps outside to thank you as you leave and sign autographs.
-- Jeremy Oberlander - Florissant, Missouri
Rick was very personable, friendly, quite a stage actor. Sort of between elvis and wayne newton. I didn't like all the dancing around they did. Kinda hokey. But the magic was great and it was an honor that i got to go up on stage as part of the audience. Audience participation parts were absolutely great!
-- Joan Gentry - Lithia, FL

Unbelieveable...We were on the second roll front and centered, and we were blown away.
-- Tresa Virden - Greenbrier, AR
Six family members had difficulty deciding what branson show, but eventually decided on rick thomas' show. We are so glad we went. It was very professionally done. I would just like to come back to see him when branson is full of people. When we were there the streets were empty and there were only 200 in the large theater. Everyone in my group said they had a great time. Thanks rick and tara!

Having been a vegas act, it was disappointing to see the show so down-graded without even a new curtain, polished stage or impressive light show. That said, rick is charming and funny and his illusions are great. Everyone in the family will enjoy this show.

Best show we have ever seen, it was an anniversary gift to my husband and myself and we could have not had a better gift ever! It was worth every penny of the ticket price! Excellent for the entire family. We will return in a couple years when our grandson is 10 so we can bring him to see this..Thank you very much!
-- Rosalie Rose - Hardin
Rick's show was top notch. A huge level above the other shows in branson. As someone else said, he is a professional, while the other shows are amateur. He has excellent stage presence, fun audience interaction, very funny banter, and very impressive illusions. By far the best show we have seen in branson.

-- Clarissa Atherton - Dallas, Texas
The rick thomas magic show turned out to be the favorite event of our trip to branson! We are 2 grandparents traveling with 3 grandchildren ages, 11, 9 and 8. We have seen many magic acts to include penn and teller in vegas, but this show was just as amazing. Our grandchildren set on the edges of their seats and our granddaughter was called up on stage to help with one of the illusions. The story of mr. Thomas is very interesting. He is a remarkable, charitable man. Tip: he sells wonderful gifts in the lobby afterwards magic sets, bengal tigers, etc. They make excellent christmas and birthday gifts.

-- Ronnie Burch - Morrow, OH
I truly enjoyed the show especially when i found that the couple next to me were celebrating their 50th anniversary. I really admire the sainthood of long marriages working with senior citizens. I really wished i could have given them a gift so i prayed for a little miracle for them. Rick in tribute to his own family called them on stage to help with his performance. I thank god for the gift. I had a wonderful first time seeing the man whom i first time on tv with the white tigers live.
