Scottish Rite Theater Archives - 365 Things to Do in Austin, TX

Scottish Rite Theater

    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!

    Jungle Book: Jangal Ki Kahani opens this weekend at the Austin Scottish Rite Theater and runs through the month of April. This fresh Bollywood-styled take on Rudyard Kipling’s beloved classic, Jungle Book, features Mowgli in new adventures learning life lessons from his jungle family.
