Personally, I’ve always had a fascination with the art of magic and illusions. When I was a wee lad, a family friend would do magic for me all the time. To a 7 year old, it was nothing short of astonishing. At the time I was convinced that he had obtained legitimate supernatural abilities, though I wasn’t sure how he had done so.

When I was a bit older (12 or so) he wound up gifting me the book of magic tricks that he learned all of his material from. For a brief period of time, I submerged myself in it. I desperately wanted to astonish people the way that he did.

My apprenticeship in the realm of magic lasted all of a few months before I gave it up, but trying my hand at it (and failing miserably) certainly made me appreciate how magic was done. One of the best magicians/illusionists around is Craig Karges.

You may have seen his appearances on The Tonight Show, CNN, and Fox News – among other well known shows. Well Craig just so happens to be swinging by The Paramount Theatre (St. Cloud) on June 28th. He’ll be putting on a performance at 1:30 pm and 7 pm as well. You can get your tickets online now for $19.
