The Thief of Always

Hold on to your hat — and your purse, wallet, keys and jewelry — because Gregory Wilson's Thief: A Criminal Act will leave you awed and possibly missing a few valuables. Wilson, a world-renowned sleight-of-hand expert, turns the skills of master criminals — pickpocketing, card sharping, cons and more — into an engaging and humorous show.

"I think it's a great hook, and it's unique," says Joe Givans of Dream Masterz Productions. "It's such a different approach from most of the guys we feature. It's not a magic show, per se, even though he uses magic techniques. Thieves use magicians' techniques all the time. It's all about deception."

Catch the thief at 7:30 p.m. tonight and tomorrow at Theatre of Dreams, 735 Park Street in Castle Rock. Admission is limited to ages sixteen and up, and business-casual dress or better is encouraged. Tickets are $20, and reservations are required. Call 303-660-6799 to make yours, or visit www.amazingshows.com for more information.
