Fabulous Frank

Fabulous Frank will join us to perform his wonderfully funny magic. Originally from Connecticut, Frank assisted other magicians at Playland-Not-at-the-Beach, but always in a sidekick role. When one of the in-house magicians became ill, Frank began performing his own shows. This guy is really Fabulous and knows how to have a good time with his audience!!!

Nick Magick
Sunday, November 29th Only
    1:00 PM and 3:00 PM
Performing since he was in the third grade, Nick Magick originally became interested in magic when he saw Christian Cagigal's amazing one-man show "Now and In the Hour." Nick loves to showcase close-up and stage magic and he has studied under Christian Cagigal, Alain Choquette, and other well known prestidigitators. Nick is a member of The International Brotherhood of Magicians.

An admirer of Criss Angel, Mac King and Penn & Teller, Nick uses his stage presence and techniques combined with his youthful enthusiasm to "Wow!" his audiences. Recently while demonstrating a card trick to Teller (of Penn & Teller), the renowned magician told Nick "I've never seen a kid your age handle a deck of cards so well." He has performed at numerous office, holiday and private parties and is one of the youngest magicians to perform at Playland-Not-At-The-Beach. In Fall 2014, Nick Magick entered the eighth grade.
