Ring 129 Mall Show October 14th to support Workshop 2017 – Remember the days when malls and shopping centers would frequently hire magicians to entertain shoppers by performing magic shows several times on a Saturday afternoon? It is more uncommon these days to hear of a mall offer live entertainment, but that’s all going to change on Saturday, October 14, 2017 when our Ring 129 and the East Hills Shopping Center in St. Joseph present MAGIC, MAGICIANS & MAYHEM AT THE MALL. This is basically a Ring 129 fundraiser to help supplement the revenues needed to produce the WORKSHOP on November 8-11, 2017, also in St. Joseph.
Ring member and WORKSHOP Executive Director, David Sandy, met with the East Hills Shopping Center management and contracted with them on the idea of doing a full day of magic at the mall. The event would include three stage shows (at 11am, 1pm and 3pm), strolling magicians, balloon sculpting, busker-style magic performances, and even beginner magic classes for youth. The day’s activities begin at 11am and everything will wrap up by 4pm.
Those Ring members and area magicians performing include Tom Burgoon, Lance Rich, Korso, Willy Leiva, Brad Lynn, Shaun Rivera, Justin Scott, Jack Cunningham, Darrin Springs and David Sandy. All Ring members are invited to attend the festivities and join in on the fun! We will also be promoting the International Superstars of Magic & Comedy show that will be held at the Missouri Theatre in St. Joseph on Saturday, November 11 (the final night’s show of the WORKSHOP).
