“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
— Mark Twain
WORLD MAGIC SEMINAR UPDATE:
This year’s World Magic Seminar (WMS) will bring lots of new changes and surprises. One of my favorite magicians, Juan Tamariz, will be performing. This year, the competition will be awesome! We have top acts from Latvia, Singapore, France, South Korea, England, Cuba, and oh yes, the USA all slated to compete. Abbi will be the Mistress of Ceremonies for the International Stage Competition, and she has some surprises in store… The WONDERGROUND players will be hosting the opening night party. If you were there last year, you know it was a great time, and we plan to top it this year! The WMS is a magical social event like no other, hosted by the extraordinary Siegfried and Roy. Join us for this historic experience. You can read more and register here:
