Made possible by Star of Hope of Ellinwood, illusionist Reza will bring his renowned magic stage show to Great Bend Sunday.
The program is set for 5 p.m. Sunday at the Crest Theater, 1905 Lakin. Tickets are $15 for adults, $9 for students and free children 5 and under, and are on sale at Perks Coffee Shop, Everything Under the Son and Star of Hope.
Star of Hope is an organization that equips children across the world with knowledge, physical well-being, spiritual growth and social skills through educational programs and local and international partnerships.
A portion of the gross proceeds will benefit the 335 children in the Marigot, Haiti Star of Hope school, said SOH President and Chief Executive Officer Barry Borror. “This school is in danger of losing funding unless we can find people who care. Just by attending this energetic show, some of these children will be helped and those attending the show will learn more about the school.”
Reza’s current tour transports upwards of 15,000 pounds of lighting, sound and staging in support of his performances. To date, Reza has been featured on television and radio shows broadcasting in 31 countries around the world, with sold out shows from Denver to New York, and Orlando to LA.
Reza has made his presence felt in the world of illusion since a very young age. His focus in the art began at the early age of seven after being inspired by a magic show in his hometown of Brookings, S.D.
By the age of 14, Reza was landing significant gigs performing for resorts and large corporations across the Midwest. On his 15th birthday Reza left his hometown to perform a six week run in Branson, Mo. The grueling 18-show-a-week schedule allowed Reza to hone his gift for entertaining. After Branson, one opportunity led to the next and as the doors began to open, Reza’s style took on a fresh and cutting edge feel. With a largely original show and an engaging stage presence, Reza began selling out theatres as the entertainment world took notice.
Fast forward more than a decade later. Reza is intriguing, engaging, and captivating. He has the ability to connect with his audiences and let them feel his magic on a personal level. He isn’t just a magician. He is an entertainer.
