"Smoke and Mirrors" Returns in Free Magic Show

Smoke and Mirrors, an illusion magic show performed by Rocky and Lori Clements of Jonesboro, will return  on Thursday, March 20, 2008 at noon and 7 pm in the Fine Arts Auditorium on the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton campus. Sponsored by the college, each performance will be a free, all-ages production open to the community, and will feature magic, music, audience participation, comedy, and special effects.  

“Smoke and Mirrors” is the largest touring magic show in Arkansas and the mid-south region of the United States. The show is part of the “Arts on Tour” program sponsored by the Arkansas Arts Council, which promotes visual and performing arts across the state. Rocky and Lori perform at about 50 venues each year, including theaters, festivals, college campuses, and corporate events. The show involves more than $50,000 worth of equipment used to produce state-of-the-art illusions in addition to classic effects performed over the last 100 years by many of the legends of magic. The show is a journey through the history of magic, including tales of past magicians and magic shows, Vaudeville, sideshows, con-men, and ghost stories, all played out with ornate props, fascinating storytelling, and a beautiful stage set. The production promises to appeal to young and old alike, and will offer an artistic alternative for those looking for something outside the usual forms of entertainment.
