MURFREESBORO: If you’re looking for a weekend getaway just an hour away, the Murfreesboro Little Theatre proudly presents a weekend of legerdemain and laughter featuring two masters of magic and madness on Friday and Saturday, April 6th & 7th at 7:00 pm both nights in their theater located at located at 702 Ewing Avenue in Murfreesboro.

The show stars Alan Fisher and Jimbo Hooten, both members of The Middle Tennessee Magic Club, the Murfreesboro chapter or Ring of The International Brotherhood of Magicians (the largest fraternal magic organization in the world).

Fisher, a past multiple office in the club, has been entertaining audience with his comedy & magic for almost fifty years. He starred in the national tour of an off-Broadway musical for six years and headlined in comedy clubs for eight years. He’s been seen on Comedy Central and The Nashville Network. This past summer Fisher was awarded one of only five invitations handed out in North America to compete in the close-up or slight-of-hand category at The World Championship of Magic conducted every three years by the Fédération Internationale des Sociétés Magiques (FISM). This year the competition will be held July 9th to 14th in Busan, South Korea where Fisher will join roughly 150 other magical competitors from around the world. Artists are responsible for covering all of their own expenses related to the competition (props, wardrobe, air-fare, hotel, food, registration fees, etc.) Part of the proceeds from these performances will help Fisher defray some of those costs.

Hooten, the current President of The Middle Tennessee Magic Club, is Murfreesboro’s own home-grown comedy magician. For well over two decades he’s been entertaining audiences with his unique blend of off-the-wall humor and mind-blowing mysteries. His magical madness has earned him high praise from trade shows to school assemblies, from boardrooms to living rooms, and everywhere in-between.

Tickets are on sale for both evening’s shows by visiting the theatre’s web site – www.mltarts.com. All seats are just $10.
