Join magicians David Parr and Erica Sodos as they celebrate the spirit of the Halloween season! This powerhouse duo combines David’s interest in the weird side of history, and Erica’s deep connection with mystical traditions, to make a memorable evening of surprises, mysteries and wonders!
On October 31 at 7:30pm Central, the wizardry of the Zoom platform will beam The Witch and the Wizard to your computer or device screen, where you’ll have a virtual front-row seat for all the magical shenanigans and fun interactivity! Erica and David will even make magic happen in your own hands! (Wacky, right?) In this one-hour show, minds will be read, fortunes foretold, ancestors honored, old traditions explored, and spooky spirits will drop in to visit! And those are just some of the things you’ll discover in our Halloween bag of tricks and treats. There will also be strange stories, mind-bending illusions, spells and hexes, and much cackling. Like this: Ha ha ha ha ha!
And here’s something sweet: this is a “pay what you can” event! You set the ticket price. How much is an evening of magic and mystery worth? That’s up to you. Reserve your virtual seat, toast some pumpkin seeds, and we’ll see you on Halloween!
One more thing: be sure to stick around after the show, because Erica and David will be doing a talkback/Q&A, so if you have a question you’ve always wanted to ask a magician, that will be your chance!
Sunday, October 31, 7:30pm Central Time (US and Canada). One-hour show, plus a Q&A after.
