If you believe in magic, or just love the illusion of it, you’ll want to catch Saturday’s “Beyond Amazing: Magic Before Your Eyes,” a show put on annually to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of the Santa Clarita Valley.

And the performers are genuine members of the magic union.

Specifically, they’re from Ring 280 of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. All the proceeds from the show will go to the Boys & Girls Club.

Brian Hoffman, president of Ring 280, said the club has allowed the group to meet at its building since January 2005, and the show is a way for members to demonstrate their appreciation.

“With the economy, the Boys & Girls Club has hit hard times in the past few years, so we’re looking to bring in some more income for them,” Hoffman said. “These are hard times for nonprofits.”

The show, which will include live animals and participation from the audience, will cost $10 per ticket. Children ages 3 and under are free.

Doors open at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. Saturday for close-up magic shows. Full-scale stage shows begin at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Many of the performers at the show are members of the world-renowned Magic Castle in Hollywood and donated VIP admission tickets to the Magic Castle. Three of these tickets will be given out at each stage show.

The show will take place at the West Ranch High School theater, which is located at 26255 Valencia Blvd.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or by calling (661) 254-CLUB.
