The Magic Hour

Owenhouse magic show to benefit Wood River youth

Express Staff Writer

It is not everyday a live tiger saunters into the Wood River High School gymnasium. But on Saturday, May 22, the Jay Owenhouse Magic Show comes to town and with it, the myriad wonders and illusions of a world-class magic show. Joining Owenhouse will be his pet assistant Bengal tiger Shere-Kahn.

Tickets for two performances, 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., are available for $12 advance purchase. At the door, tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children.

Proceeds for the event go to Youth Adult Connections, a coalition of the Blaine County Teen Advisory Council. Each week BCTAC holds meetings with approximately 40 middle and high school students to discuss, implement and volunteer for weekly youth-driven projects, events and activities.

YAK! Director Angenie McCleary is familiar with the show. "This is Owenhouse’s sixth year doing the show in the valley and the third time for YAK! and BCTAC," said McCleary. "The show is great for all audiences, but especially fun for younger kids with lots of audience participation."

BCTAC focuses on developmental assets that youth need to become healthy, responsible and caring members of society.

The magic show is an opportunity to donate to the cause of creating responsible young individuals in the community, along with seeing an extraordinary show.

Owenhouse is currently working on his second special for the Fox Family network, and has been featured on the "Masters of Illusion" television special.

In its current incarnation, the Owenhouse magic show features such impressive acts as "Sawing a Tiger in Half" and "The Disappearing Motorcycle."

Volunteers are needed for set-up and tear-down for the show. Shifts are 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and 8 p.m.-11 p.m. on Saturday. Volunteers will receive free tickets to the show.

Contact Angenie McCleary at 727-8735 for more information.
