Illusionist Bill Blagg coming to Lerner for Oct. 8 performance

October 02, 2016

Illusionist Bill Blagg will perform his unique style of magic at the Lerner Theatre Oct. 8 at 7 p.m.

Blagg, an award-winning illusionist who has performed on broadcast TV, stages grand-scale illusions such as instantly teleporting across theaters, squishing himself to just five inches tall, and causing audience members to float in mid-air or vanish at a moment's notice, according to information from the Lerner. Blagg combines his magic talents with quick wit and off-the-cuff personality, creating an experience for all ages.

His big break came when he won a magic competition at age 18 in the "Magic Capital of the World," Colon, Mich., which made him the youngest contestant to ever win the event. By winning Blagg joined the ranks of his idols, including Las Vegas master magician Lance Burton.

Tickets for the single performance are on sale now. To purchase tickets at the $32 or $22 price level, visit or call 574-293-4469.
