“Illusion is the first of all pleasures.” Oscar Wilde

Intimate Miracles is Sebastian’s showcase of his favorite close-up magic. His amazing talent, uncanny sense of humor, and engaging personality, create an unforgettable evening of magic, laughter, and sheer entertainment.

Intimate Miracles is a 90 minute performance for ages 18 and up. There’s no profanity or offensive language in this show, but it is thematically designed and intended for the most discerning of adult audiences. Preview the show by watching the video below.


Open Minds

Astonishing And Thoroughly Entertaining

Open Minds is the newest mindreading and mystery experience, created and performed by master mentalist John Hankins. His demonstrations of reading the thoughts of random spectators and subtly influencing their decisions, have been called astounding. All the while, the audience is thoroughly entertained by John’s light-hearted approach and sly humor.

John takes the audience on a tour of what it would be like to grow up with mindreading abilities, relating stories of how being differently-abled had its advantages and disadvantages. He uses his talents to connect with members of the audience, plucking thoughts from their minds and influencing their choices, while making sure they laugh along the way. The show is very interactive and all John asks is that you attend with an “open mind” and enjoy.

Open Minds is a 60 minute performance and is for ages 13 and up.


Saturday Night Magic

Starring Karl Hein

April 22, 2017 at 8:00PM

Karl Koppertop’s “Magic On The Mind” is an experience you don’t want to miss! This is your opportunity to spend time up close with a world renowned magician, feel a true sense of wonder and come away with stories of mystery, laughter and joy that you will tell for years to come.

While Karl Koppertop has performed in over 30 countries, made appearances on national television and taught thousands of professional magicians all over the world, his true passion is giving newcomers the unique experience of close-up magic.

When a miracle happens in your hands and you can’t believe what you’re seeing, it’s a feeling you won’t forget. When the mind of the person sitting next to you becomes an open book you will ask questions you’ve never asked before. When deeper mysteries are revealed within everyday objects like playing cards, Rubik’s Cubes and dollar bills you can’t help but see the world a little differently.

“Magic On The Mind” is not a collection of off the shelf tricks bought at a magic shop that just any magician can perform. Every show is a customized experience that requires thousands of hours of practice and thoughtful execution so that you become part of an audience on a exhilarating ride of comedy, magic and mentalism with a few other surprises along the way. What will happen when Magic is on Your Mind?

This show is recommended for ages 13 and up.

Carney Magic

Secrets, Mentors… and the Beauty of a Perfect Illusion

Sean McMaster at Saturday Night Magic

CarneyMagic is a theatre show that blends mind-blowing sleight of hand with intelligence, taste, and wit, into a unique evening of pure entertainment. This is definitely NOT your typical “magic show”.

John Carney is a unique hybrid of Comedian, Actor, and Sleight of Hand Virtuoso.
His approach is smart, engaging, and often… hilarious.

Pin-balling between jaunty comedic riffs and astonishing sleight of hand, Carney will have you reeling with laughter one moment, baffled the next, and marveling at his thoughtful stories.

More than a theater show. More than a magic show.

Regarded by his peers as one of the top sleight of hand performers in the world, Carney has won more awards from Hollywood’s Magic Castle than anyone in their history, as well as the Academy of Magical Arts prestigious Masters Performing Fellowship.

Unique. Funny. Amazing. Poignant

You won’t see any big boxes, tigers, dancing girls, or lasers. Just a quirky, likable guy, cracking-wise and doing some pretty amazing things… and all the while, you’ll be laughing yourself silly. CarneyMagic is a show that will amaze you, as it charms and delights.

CarneyMagic is not a children’s show!
Best for ages 8 and older.


It’s More Than Magic… It’s Doc

Doc Eason

The legendary Doc Eason will, once again, grace our stage at the Red Spade Theater on Friday night Apr 21. Doc has packed the Red Spade with the act that has elevated him to ‘legend’ status in the magic world. Don’t be disappointed. This show has sold out in the past. Get your tickets today.
