“This family has been performing for over 20 years and has travelled all over the country,” said David Taylor, executive director of the Sandusky State Theatre. “There family friendly illusions include cutting people in half, performing the corkscrew twist and guillotine trick.”
Some of their other tricks include making someone disappear, making someone float and making items appear out of nowhere.
This fun family event has something for people of all ages and is a modern twist on old magic tricks.
“They give you a new twist on standard magic tricks,” Taylor said. “They are cool and hip, but also quirky.”
It is also very affordable with tickets ranging from $15 for kids to $20 for adults.
“This show is also very affordable, so everyone can afford to attend,” Taylor said. “If you go to Vegas for $180 you could see David Copperfield perform four tricks. For a fraction of the cost you can come to the Sandusky State Theatre and see at least 18 different tricks.”
