Austin Scottish Rite Theatre

    Take a magical journey through Kent’s life as a magician, showcasing some of his favorite illusions from throughout his 70 years as a magician (full time since 1986).

    Kent’s first show for a real audience was in 1952, in his home town of Del Rio, Texas. His first paid performance was the very next year, for the Junior Modern Woodmen Club in San Antonio. Kent won his first trophy as a magician in 1960 (and his second in 1961!), and has performed throughout the Unites States, Canada, Europe, Asia, and New Zealand.

    Master of Ceremonies is Kent’s long-time friend, “Peter the Adequate.”
    Special guest performers include Carolyn Kim, “The Amazing Adele,” Ray Ray the Rabbit…and perhaps others!
    (Also, by special request…Kent promises to tell “The Juggler Joke.”)
    All seats are $47…and everybody gets a free souvenir magic wand!
