Quick Center for the Arts at 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 30, 2011, as part of the Quick Center's 2011-2012 "Awesome Fun" series. Kevin and Cindy Spencer are a husband-and-wife performing team who present a magical combination of drama, comedy, romance and suspense interspersed with elaborate stage illusions and plenty of audience participation. In one magical experiment, the entire audience is asked to get involved in a stunning, interactive mind reading experience.

Tickets are $35, $30, and $25. Children under 12 are $15.
As the stars of Theatre of Illusion, the Spencers are a highly respected and sought-after illusion team and tour with one of the largest illusion rigs in magical entertainment. They continue to redefine "magic" for a new generation delivering drama, spectacle, interaction, danger, and personality with each unforgettable performance. Described as "Modern Day Houdinis" by critics, they have been named "Performing Arts Entertainers of the Year" for a record-breaking six consecutive years and have twice been named "America's Best Entertainers." The Spencers were recently named "International Magicians of the Year," the top honor given by the International Magicians Society, joining the ranks of Doug Henning, Harry Blackstone, Jr., Penn & Teller, David Copperfield, and Criss Angel.
Kevin Spencer is the co-founder of Healing of Magic and the author of the Hocus Focus curriculum for special education students. Cindy Spencer is the first woman to be recognized by the International Brotherhood of Magicians and receive her own feature article and cover on the oldest magic magazine in the world, The Linking Ring.
