Adrian Vega lecture

This month, we have another amazing lecturer coming up. Adrian Vega, a world class close-up artist, will be sharing some of his unique and stylistic magic with us at 7pm on Thursday, May 24th. Admission is $10 for members and $15 for non-members.

Boys Town Great Hall

Each year we have a Magic Club Picnic for our members’ families and friends.

At the picnic, we host some of the young kids from Boys Town at their fabulous Great Hall.  (No need to worry about rain or excessive heat.)

We put on a show with some of our members performing for about 5 minutes each.  A stage and microphone will be provided.  We also will have some of us walking around demonstrating close-up magic as everyone arrives.  

This event is fun even if you don’t wish to perform.  The kids love it.  Here is a chance to try out a couple of your routines in this great setting.  

Don’t forget to RSVP!
