He has been named Close-up and Stand-up Magician of the year in Kansas City on several occasions as well as the Stage Magician of the year at the Midwest Magic Jubilee in St Louis MO. The Kansas City Star calls him the “Master of Close-up Enchantment”.
Elton is a member and performer at the prestigious Magic Castle in Hollywood and his Magic has taken him all over the United States and Canada.
When it comes to comedy and magic, Pete Walterscheid takes great pride in what he presents. He jokingly refers to himself as “world famous in certain parts of Kansas. He has been awarded a magician membership to the Magic Castle in Hollywood. Walterscheid was a featured performer in the “Masters of Magic Tour 2014” that performed in the Kansas City area finishing with a sold-out crowd at Theater Lawrence in Lawrence, KS. He has recently been awarded the title “Close-Up Magician of the Year” of the International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring #129 of the greater Kansas City area. He was a chosen performer for the closing “Comedy Magic Extravaganza” show of the Kansas City Fringe Festival the last two years.
Be it on stage or in the spectator’s hands, Walterscheid’s magic delights and thrills. You can’t help but become a part of the excitement and fun that ‘Magic by Pete’ extends to his audiences.
