The third annual "An Evening of Magic" benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley on Saturday, April 18 will feature nearly three hours of magic, including close-up, parlor and stage performances, presented by the International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring 280.

“This will be a faster, more action-packed show than the first two. Our guests will be treated to many new surprises, including the appearance of a man from within the shadows, the hilarious comedy magic of Tim Jennings and the mysterious levitation of a young woman,” said Bob Love, the 2009 director and producer and resident of Valencia.

Brian Hoffman, serving as the event’s stage manager for the third time, thinks what really makes the show so amazing is the varied “cast of characters.”

“Our club includes sheriff’s deputies, a stuntman, young students, a Boys & Girls Club administrator, a librarian, and senior citizens,” Hoffman said. “Some have performed for decades while others are just learning the trade.”  

Doors open at 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. for people to experience close-up magic, where they can walk right up to the magician performing and interact with the artist. Stage shows at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. will serve as the finale for guests.  

"An Evening of Magic" performances are geared for the entire family. Children three and younger are free. All others are $10. The event will take place inside the Boys & Girls Club’s gymnasium at 24909 Newhall Avenue in Newhall.
