Monkey. They are joined by a group of new characters; Harry Zimmerman, the narrator, Kelly Diaz, the heroine, and Contessa Vanessa D’Messa, an eccentric snooty pants and the Clubhouse O’ Magic’s landlord, who aid in solving the most confounding of mysteries through a series of loosely connected chapters. Through the narration of Harry Zimmerman, the book’s interactive format takes the reader on an path encouraging them to perform a few of Mac King’s illusions, which are then used to help solve the mystery.

“With the growing popularity of eReaders like Kindle and Nook, I knew it was only a matter of time until my faithful and attention-craving sidekick, Lewis T. Monkey, would want to make his appearance in the digital world,” said Mac King. “With Magic in a Minute Mysteries, kids can learn magic in a fun new way by reading and participating in a good book. Plus, Lewis’ thirst for stardom is quenched for another day.”

Suited for children in grades 5-8, with a reading level of 9-12, Magic in a Minute Mysteries is a thrill-packed interactive book written by Mac King and R.G.

About Magic in a Minute
In June of 2004, Mac King launched “Magic In a Minute” – a Sunday comic strip that runs in major national newspapers – alongside illustrator Bill King. The success of “Magic In a Minute” led to magic toys, magic sets and instructional videos that are sold in major box retailers nationwide.

King debuted his first book Great Big Ol’ Book-O-Magic in 2007, a magic book which quickly became a hit among children. In 2009 Suitcase-O-Magic – a miniature suitcase filled with magic tricks and instructions – hit store shelves. Continuing the success of his bookstore endeavors, Mac King released Mac King’s Campfire Magic in March 2010, followed by Mac King’s Campfire Magic App for iPhone and iPad. In May 2010, King released his newest magic set Lunchbox-O-Magic.

Comedy-Magician Mac King Goes Pink for a Cause with Fundraiser to Make Breast Cancer ‘Disappear’

 

Comedy-Magician Mac King Goes Pink for a Cause with Fundraiser
to Make Breast Cancer ‘Disappear’

Proceeds to benefit Susan G. Komen of Southern Nevada


Comedy-Magician Mac King joins the fight to make breast cancer disappear during Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a special fundraiser benefitting Susan G. Komen of Southern Nevada. Throughout the month of October, guests who make a $5 donation after the show will receive two limited edition pink “Mac King & Susan G. Komen – Magic For a Cure” wristbands. For those that purchase two merchandise products after the show King will donate the $5 on their behalf. All proceeds will benefit Susan G. Komen of Southern Nevada. The wristbands won’t be the only pink in Mac King’s show. For the entire month of October, King will “go pink” for a cause by ditching his traditional yellow “Cloak of Invisibility” for a pink one.
 
“Breast Cancer is a terrible and unfortunate disease that no one should have to endure,” said King. “That’s why I’m calling upon my guests to join me in the fight to make breast cancer disappear. Wearing a nifty “Magic For A Cure” wristband is a great way to show support and raise awareness for this important cause.”

The Smith Center Announces Design Your Own Series

 

 

More than 20 Incredible Shows Join the Inaugural Season
at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts


Design Your Own Series Offers Variety Beyond Broadway Las Vegas

 

The Smith Center for the Performing Arts will launch its Design Your Own series on Sunday, September 25. The series will include more than 20 titles showcasing a mix of dance, music, and special attractions. The series gives patrons the opportunity to customize their theater experience and save up to 15% when purchasing multiple shows.

The inaugural Design Your Own series season includes titles from dance masters such as the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and tap dance extraordinaire Savion Glover, to comedian Lily Tomlin and humorist David Sedaris, to celebrated musicians including The Cleveland Orchestra and Yo-Yo Ma. The series allows patrons to mix-and-match precisely to their interests, instead of buying a pre-selected dance-only or music-only series. With such a wide variety of world-class entertainment, the possibilities to create the perfect customized series are endless. Titles in the series are slated for March-June 2012. Prices are as low as $24 per ticket, and by packaging three shows or more into a custom series, patrons will save even more.

“We plan to bring the community a wide variety of shows in order to provide cultural diversity for all,” says Myron Martin, president and CEO of The Smith Center. “The Design Your Own series has something for everyone and will allow people to customize a package that fits their interests, while allowing them to explore new acts they may not have otherwise sought out.”

Series tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Sunday, September 25, 2011, and will be available by calling The Smith Center’s ticketing office at (702) 982-7805 or by visiting thesmithcenter.com. By purchasing series tickets in September and October 2011, patrons will save based on the amount of shows purchased. Ticket prices begin at $24 per show (not including processing and handling fees). A minimum of three performances are required for savings in the Design Your Own series. Three shows will result in a 5% total discount, five shows in a 7% total discount and seven shows in a 15% discount. Series ticket prices are dependent upon seat location. Individual tickets are set to go on sale for titles in the series in November of 2011.

The Smith Center takes another important step forward on its path to opening with the addition of the Design Your Own series. The center continues to be on-time and on-budget, with an opening date scheduled for March 10, 2012.
