Jim Steinmeyer's The Card Trick at The Magic Castle, May 26

On May 26 The Magic Castle presents a special performance of The Card Trick, a one act play written by Jim Steinmeyer and featuring Jim Bentley as Houdini.

The play also stars Jeanine Anderson as Margery the Medium and Derek Hughes "adding something special to the mix." It will be performed in the Peller Theater at 8PM. Jim Steinmeyer will be on hand to introduce the play. In addition, Jim Bentley will perform period tricks and escapes as Houdini.

The performance is open to AMA members with a suggested donation of $25. All proceeds from this performance will benefit the Dai Vernon Fund. Details on how to reserve a seat can be found in the latest member's newsletter or member section of the Magic Castle website. Seating is limited.

The Card Trick will also be performed on June 3 for those lucky enough to have grabbed a spot on the Skirball Center's special A Day At The Magic Castle event. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a ticket to the Skirball event, but I have reserved a seat for the May 26 performance. This should be interesting indeed!

UPDATE: A second performance on May 26 has been added at 9:30pm.
