Haydini: Magician

Mar 23 , 2018 · STAGE DOOR THEATER at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center

$18 - $25

Presented by: Haydini Magic

Charlotte magician Hayden “Haydini” Childress will be debuting at Blumenthal Art’s Stage Door Theater March 23. This show will feature new magic and audience participation including: unlocking an audience member’s locked, encrypted cell phone, vanishing a person, and Haydini’s signature sleight of hand card magic.

You may have seen Haydini on Charlotte’s FOX46 “Good Day Charlotte” performing magic like making a thought of animal appear in a signed photograph of meteorologist Nick Kosir.

“Magic has always fascinated me ever since I started learning it as a kid. I love being surprised and being fooled, and I have created a magic show that I really think is going to blow you away!” says Hayden (Haydini). “ The show that I perform also really engages the audience, which I think is more important today now than ever because live theater is competing more and more with things like YouTube and Facebook. I want the audience to feel like a part of the show which is something you can’t get from a YouTube video!”

Haydini | Magician runs one night March 23rd, 2018. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with show starting at 8 p.m. Run-time is 75 minutes with no intermission. General admission tickets are $25 and the show is family friendly. Student discounts are available at the door for $18. Tickets are available through the Blumenthal Performing Arts Box Office, located in the Belk Theater Lobby at 130 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, 28202; Telephone: 704-372-1000 and
