FRIDAY, SATURDAY & SUNDAY

“With Silvermaine in control, the mood shifts from amusing to amazing. He pulls off a card trick – yes, a card trick – so mind-bendingly good that you’re likely to stay up an extra hour trying to figure out how he did it…Silverman does what great magicians ought to do: He reduces cynical adults to a state of holiday-appropriate wonder.” – San Francisco Chronicle

Do you believe in magic?  Once you see Merloch Silvermaine work his wizardly tricks, we’re betting you will.

By day, Dr Kim Silverman is a principal research scientist. But by night he studies the more, er, “esoteric” sciences. He is Magician Member of the Academy of Magical Arts in Hollywood, better known as the world-famous Magic Castle. Many magical authorities believe he was the inspiration for a certain wizard in the Harry Potter series. Indeed, as Professor Merloch Silvermaine, he spent 12 months as Visiting Sorcerer at the Hogwarts Academy of Witchcraft and Wizardry. While there he taught Spells and Divinations, and carried out research into advanced magical techniques, and the relationship between Magic and Emotion.

3:00-3:50 Saturday & Sunday at the Teen Scene – Card Magic with Merloch
Be the life of the party! Impress your friends! Learn real card magic tricks with Merloch the Magician.


EZ PZ Jugglers

SATURDAY & SUNDAY

Zed Friedman and Parker Chow first juggled together at a grade school talent show. Since then they have honed their unusual skills and comedic banter into a highly in-demand family variety show. If it can be thrown or manipulated, they do it. Flying clubs, spinning hoops, jumping unicycles – even flinging plastic grocery bags – all have a place in their hilarious show of engaging visuals, clever wit, and endearing camaraderie.
