Presto the Magician! — Festival of Illusions
Wednesday, March 25 2020 @ 2:00 pm
A special matinee magic show, designed with our youngest audiences in mind. Kevin (aka Presto) first got interested in magic when he was eight years old and watched his uncle perform magic at a family reunion. After convincing his parents to buy him a magic set, and quickly learning all the tricks, he was performing shows for his neighborhood out of his garage! When he was 14, Kevin started performing for events in the Seattle area, including the Seattle Children’s Hospital, where he performed with his brother, Evan. “I loved seeing how laughter took the sadness out of the children’s faces,” Kevin says. Kevin’s love of magic has continued to this day (basically, he never grew up), where he performs full-time at events throughout the Pacific Northwest. As a magician in Portland, Presto currently performs nearly 300 shows each year!
