An Online Interactive Magic Experience!
Richard Preston, magician to the stars, has been a performer since 1940 and what a career. But by 1961, the world was in trouble. There was the threat of nuclear war and we were on the verge of traveling to the moon and Mars. Richard was approached by the government to be cryogenically frozen then be thawed out in 2050 to entertain the first colonies on Mars. Richard accepted the mission without hesitation. He was frozen in December of 1962.
Current world circumstances have forced world governments to vote in secret to thaw Richard early and entertain the people of Earth. Richard’s new mission is to help bring the world closer together during these turbulent times. The world awaits Richard Preston’s return with bated breath.
Magician Stuart MacDonald will star in this wonderful show / play that’s a romp through history as well as an amazing online interactive magic show. Stuart is America’s top competitive magician with more awards won in this decade than any magician. He won the Society of American Magicians First Place, the International Brotherhood of Magicians First Place, represented the USA in the World Championships of Magic in Busan South Korea and fooled Penn and Teller on the hit TV show Penn and Teller Fool Us. Stuart (Richard) will read your thoughts and instruct you on how to do magic and yet you won’t know how it’s done.Buy tickets
