The Spencers: Theatre of Illusion - Nov 8th. PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 09 October 2014 00:00

 

Theatre of Illusion is a spectacular production filled with fabulous illusions. For the Spencer's, magic is no longer merely about baffling the audience by doing something seemingly impossible.

This is one of the last opportunities to see the Spencers perform live before they retire their full stage production in May 2015. Their show will include some brilliant illusions created by Jim Steinmeyer, audience participation, and stage magic. This is a show for audiences of all ages and tickets are very reasonably priced. Please feel free to share this performance information with your magical friends and colleagues!

Prepare to be mystified and mesmerized—Spencers' Theatre of Illusion is unlike anything you’ve ever seen! Blending the theatrical elements of a Broadway production with the energy of a rock concert, these modern-day Houdinis dazzle audiences with their spellbinding stage illusions and sensational special effects. Winners of more than 20 national awards, Kevin and Cindy Spencer have performed for millions of people with sold-out performances in 19 countries. Recently named “International Magicians of the Year,” they’ve officially joined the ranks of the biggest names in the business including Penn & Teller, David Copperfield, and Criss Angel. Anything can and likely will happen when these wily wizards take the stage! (This performance is two hours in length with a 15-minute intermission.)

Colon, Magic Capitol of the World

Magic video posted on THE VERGE today.

I noticed this 14 minute video about Colon on THE VERGE. Check out the article and then watch the video. It's a surprising place to find this interesting look at magic in Colon. There is one small local issue, they appear to have spelled David Seebach's name incorrectly in the credits (video editors worst nightmare).

Written by David Swoboda   
Friday, 05 September 2014 00:00

With a sad heart, I must report the passing of Andy Pugens (Andrew G. Pugens) this past Thursday, September 4, 2014.

The magic of Andy inspired so many youngsters and adults over his vibrant 62 years of life! Having first meet Andy while still a teenager, I am humbled to still call him a friend 38 years later. We will all miss you Andy. A great man, magician and friend...

Our prayers go out to Angie, Andy's guiding light for 42 years, and his relatives and friends.

Andy was a member of the I.B.M. Ring 41, Houdini Club of Wisconsin, and the SAM Assembly 61.

A quick note from the webmaster... Print E-mail
Friday, 07 March 2014 00:00

 

The State of Things.

As longtime visitors know, I have been running this website site since August of 2009. It is a labor of love, for the art of magic. It's my attempt to make up for the middle years of my life where magic got lost in the shuffle.

This is not a commercial venture, but it does cost me money each year to keep it running. Not to mention a lot of free time to update. Over the years, several friends and a few strangers have helped me pay the bills and keep the local magic news appearing. They know who they are.

I am deeply grateful for your help.

But, times are getting tough, and shortly, I need to make a decision on whether to keep the data flowing. Without help, I will be shutting down this website when my current contract expires.

Please consider clicking the GREEN banner over on the right and donating $5 to help keep MagicInWisconsin.com running. With your help we can keep this site the "go to place for magic events" for years to come.

A few quick facts: The site has promoted 180 events as of today. That's 3.1 events per month for four and a half years. Twenty-one Wisconsin magicians are posted in our local magicians directory. Links in articles here have been clicked on over 40,000 times. The free banners that I post here have been clicked on 31,750 times since I turned them on. Several Wisconsin magicians have thousands of clicks direct to their websites because of MagicInWisconsin.com. I can only hope it has garnered them some work.

But, I have no empirical evidence that anyone needs this website. I have a fair amount of web traffic, but that doesn't really tell me if anyone finds this site useful in the grand scheme of things.

So, as I add some new posts for upcoming events, I find myself wondering, "is this website useful to local magicians?"

Do you find this website useful? If so, don't forget that GREEN button.

Sincerely,

David Swoboda
