Duane Laflin is an internationally awarded performer who specializes in family-friendly entertainment.

The prestigious Magic Circle, located in London, England, has honored him with the highest status a performing magician can receive. He has been made a Member Of The Inner Magic Circle With Gold Star.
in 2014, after years of primarily working in magic shows, Duane and his wife Mary began producing music and comedy shows which all have been wonderfully successful productions. In Custer, South Dakota, they put on the “Grand Jamboree,” in Branson, Missouri, they put on the “Ozark Music Show,” and before the pandemic hit, they had created and produced a comedy music show “The Comedy Jubilee” which was scheduled for the Bird-In-Hand theater in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Now they have focused their expertise on their theater in Colon, Michigan, in order to (along with their magic shows) add highly entertaining variety programs to their performance schedule!
For many years Duane’s wife Mary was his partner on stage. The Dean of the Society Of American Magicians has named Mary Laflin on his top list of ten magician’s assistants. At this stage in life she is general manager of Grand Magic operations and applies her expertise to training assistants who presently work with Duane on stage.
Together Duane and Mary have performed on five continents, in eighteen countries of the world and in forty-seven of the fifty states in the USA. For three seasons the Laflins performed at the Magic Beyond Belief theater in Pigeon Forge, TN, before moving on to establish the Grand Magic theater near Mt. Rushmore in Custer, South Dakota. Over the seven years they were there, their show consistently received five-star ratings from Trip Advisor. It was a top-rated attracton in the region. Following their South Dakota experience they enjoyed five wonderful years in Branson, Missouri, before making the decision to settle in Colon, Michigan (the magic capital of the world) for the final stage of their career.
