Lyn Dillies (b. ?)
America's Premiere Female Illusionist
Place of Birth
New Bedford, MA. USA
Lyn possesses the ability of performing grand illusions. She created magic history by being the only illusionist to magically manifest 2 Asian elephants at once in front of a live audience.
After playing golf for only a few months, Lyn got a 130 yard hole in one! She also loves driving her own truck that hauls her touring show.
For over 20 years illusionist Lyn Dillies has been astounding audiences throughout the United States and Canada.
She has been called the finest female magician in the land as well as one of America's top illusionists.
As a young girl Lyn was fascinated by magic. Her great-grandfather , Thomas Wyatt, was an amateur magician and member of the New Bedford Magic Wand Club, an organization she was to join in her early teens.
Growing up, she was inspired by the television series "The Magician," starring Bill Bixby, whose character captured criminals by way of magic.
Every week she would tune in to "The Magician" and study what she saw: the escapes, the adventures, the illusion of it all.
So she set out to capture a bit of fantasy for herself. She bought some pocket tricks, practiced a lot, then tried her hand at dazzling her family and friends.
They applauded her magical talents, and soon she found herself dreaming of bigger audiences and better illusions.
Lyn's parents have been very supportive in her career. In the early days, mom Loretta acted as a booking agent and wardrobe manager, while father Calvin built her first illusion.
They shared chauffeur duties and now marvel at their daughter's truck which carries her 7 ton show.
Her show THE MAGIC OF LYN, is jammed-packed with jaw-dropping illusions, enthralling music and of course, her enchanting personality.
Some of her illusions include Metamorphosis, Human Diffusion and Twister. From the grandeur of New York's Lincoln Center to the glitterama of Atlantic city and throughout the US and Canada, rave reviews follow every performance of her powerful brand of mystery and illusion.
Lyn also performs her show "Magic At The Symphony" live with symphonies all around the country including several performances at the Lincoln Center.
This program combines the majesty of classical music with Lyn's thrilling illusions encouraging children to discover the magic of classical music while experiencing the harmony of her illusions.
She created magic history by being the only illusionist before or since to make two live Asian elephants appear in succession. This incredible feat was accomplished outdoors, in front of an audience of her peers for the grand opening of the Buttonwood Park Zoo in New Bedford, MA.
Lyn has recently created an award-winning DVD called "Learn Magic With Lyn." The program is designed for kids with a budding interest in magic, empowering to both boys and girls.
