On October 25th we held our Magic Teach-in for kids. Char Gott, Regis Kormick, Kyle Bassett, C.J. Diamond, and Michael Baker each taught easy to learn tricks. Brad Borland and Rodney Nordstrom were on hand to assist. The turnout was low with only 10 kids in attendance, but it seemed to be a fun time for all involved.
That evening, we had our Tribute to Houdini show to kick off Magic Week. Performers included Grant Golden, Troy Keefer, Jay Zentko, Brad Borland, Matthew Gardner, Kyle and Mollie Sue Pfister, Kyle Bassett, Michael Baker, and C.J. Diamond, who graciously flew in from Boston to be part of the show. Each performed with a tie-in to Houdini. Dennis Peacock served as the MC. Kyle Pfister supplied projection screens that had clips of Houdini running before the show and during intermission. Several other PMA members played integral roles taking tickets, serving concessions, running spotlight and doing close-up magic. The turnout was better than expected and the audience seemed to really like the show.
Happy Magical Halloween!
