The Wheeler Opera House will present award-winning illusionist Bill Blagg in two shows on Sunday, February 18 at  4:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Bill has been hailed by critics across the country for his unique style of magic and illusion. His action packed show features random audience volunteers floating in mid-air while others vanish at a moment’s notice! 

 

Tickets are $17.50 child, $35 adult (Wheeler Wins! member pricing available) and are available now at the Wheeler Opera House Box Office (970.920.5770/ aspenshowtix.com). The Wheeler Opera House is located at 320 E. Hyman Ave., Aspen, CO.

Wheeler Opera House Executive Director Gena Buhler states, “We’ve had great luck with magicians on our winter series – selling out most of these types of shows. Bill Blagg is one of the best in the business! My advice? Don’t wait on this one. Get your family’s tickets now.” 

You’ve seen him on NBC, CBS and FOX and now is your chance to see him live! Bill’s big break occurred when he won a prestigious magic competition at the age of 18 in the “Magic Capital of the World” (Colon, MI).  He went down in magic history as the youngest contestant to ever win the event. By winning, he joined the ranks of his idols, which include Las Vegas’s very own master magician Lance Burton.

 

Bill is widely regarded for his unconventional style of magic, which doesn’t involve cliché tricks with playing cards or birds. Instead he prefers to thrill audiences with his incredible grand-scale illusions such as instantly teleporting across theatres and squishing his body to just 5” tall! You have to see it to believe it!  Bill combines his magical talents with his quick wit and off-the-cuff personality that creates an incredible experience for all ages.
