From small-scale miracles that take only a wine glass and some coins to larger tricks involving the audience, Samelson combines the surprise of illusion and seemingly impossible feats with theatrical stories of love and laughter. “It invites people to step beyond trying to figure out how these magical mysteries work and to find ways that this might speak to them — the way a beautiful piece of music might, or a great piece of art,” he says.
Samelson will make magic today and tomorrow at the Theatre of Dreams Arts & Event Center, 735 Park Street in Castle Rock. For tickets, $22.50, call 303-660-6799; for information, visit amazingshows.com.
