Thank You for Supporting Our Magic Show:

The Maximilian Foundation presents an amazing night of family friendly magic,  illusions and mentalism for all ages at the Stafford Township Arts Center! So…you might be wondering “is this just for kids?” No way! (Although, they will enjoy it too!) We’ve partnered with Smoke & Mirrors Magic Theater in Pennsylvania to bring a one of a kind show to Stafford! Smoke & Mirrors is quickly gaining  a reputation among the world’s best sleight of hand magicians! There will be multiple performers akin to what you’d see in Vegas, Atlantic City or on America’s Got Talent. This is a show the entire family will love!  Tickets are on sale now and all proceeds will help to support our programs:

Not your typical comedy magic show! It’s an original blend of clean comedy, fun magic and amazingly intricate balloon feats! And yes – balloon feats that adult audiences really enjoy! John Cassidy is a professional comedian, magician, and balloon artist who holds several Guinness World Records® for balloon sculpting speed.

International Stars of Magic and Illusion John Bundy and Morgan perform high energy, grand illusion shows delivering the finest in family entertainment. Filled with magic, comedy, & audience participation, you will see people appear, disappear, dematerialize and levitate right before your eyes!

Peter Gossamer is world renown for his electrifying performance of magic, dance and theater. He is considered a pioneer in magic because of his original concepts and fresh approach to the art of illusion. Gossamer Magic is in demand! He is often hired to make CEO’s appear and disappear.

Mike Miller, a master magician and illusionist, combines magical effects with his imaginative sense of humor and is internationally known for his entertaining skills. The result – a delightfully clever show that you will remember for a long come. After seeing the show there will be no doubt in your mind that deception can be fun.
