The Magic of Bill Blagg at Arts Alive! Nov. 10
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside Arts Alive series presents an astonishing night of illusion with The Magic of Bill Blagg. This one-night-only spectacular is Saturday, Nov. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the Main Stage Theatre of the Rita Tallent Picken Regional Center for Arts and Humanities, located at 900 Wood Rd. in Kenosha. A limited number of tickets remain for this performance.
Bill Blagg began making magic when he was five years old and he received a magic kit. Soon, he was entertaining his classmates and teachers at Beulah Park Elementary School in his hometown of Zion, Illinois. His magic has grown over the years, big enough now to fill major theatres but it's his humor and interaction that make the show so much fun.
"I love the way Bill presents himself and his illusions. It's obvious that he's having a great time and he wants the audience to feel the same way," said Arts Alive! Director Stephanie Sirovatka-Marshall. "There's a lot of laughter during his show and a lot of audience involvement. You can't be passive at a Bill Blagg show."
Called "simply amazing" by Chicago Tribune and "A must-see event" by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, during his show Blagg walks through steel, animates inanimate objects, makes audience volunteers levitate while others vanish in the blink of an eye. This is grand-scale illusion that will have you rubbing your eyes in disbelief.Tickets for Bill Blagg are $25.50 for adults and $21 for students. Tickets are available online at www.uwp.edu keyword tickets or by calling 262-595-2307.
