From St. Charles, MO, Timothy Shegitz. Timothy is an accomplished magician and musician. A mainstay of the Missouri magic scene, Timothy was first with us when he assisted Jeff McBride at Jeff’s show last September.

As one of the new wave of Michigan conjurers, Trino is making a name for himself. As well as performing, he lectures, and is a creator of magic tricks.  The Magic of Trino commingles comedy and theatrical feats alongside a backdrop of popular music, presenting an energetic and thoroughly modern take on the ancient art of illusion. At once cheeky and charming, the finely coiffed Trino creatively interweaves audience participation with stand alone stunts that wow and woo audiences of all ages. He has recently been seen at Six Flags Great Adventure, Firekeepers Casino, LaughFest and as a guest act on the Masters of Illusion tour. Trino is a versatile entertainer who has had his hands in wide ranging productions from the college circuit and corporate events to private soirées and company parties.

From Indiana, Larry Wirtz. Larry returns with us after his wonderful performance last December. He is a veteran teacher of the Chavez Magic School and in this performance he will feature his legendary manipulation act.

Peering down from their home on Mt. Olympus, the ancient Greek gods see a fast-paced, modern world filled with high-tech distractions. Who has the time to remember their stories? Calliope, the goddess of epic poetry, descends from the mountaintop to enlist the help of an 11-year-old mortal, Jason. But does Jason have the guts to overcome his stage fright and become the next bard?

Tales of Olympus opening day

Written by: Min Kahng

45 minutes; ages 4+

Peering down from their home on Mt. Olympus, the ancient Greek gods see a fast-paced, modern world filled with high-tech distractions. Who has the time to remember their stories? Calliope, the goddess of epic poetry, descends from the mountaintop to enlist the help of an 11-year-old mortal, Jason. But does Jason have the guts to overcome his stage fright and become the next bard?

Enjoy a delicious pizza lunch at Marengo Cave before setting off for Bluespring Caverns. At Bluespring Caverns, you will experience caving in a whole new way – on a boat! Experience ‘total darkness’ and catch a glimpse of animal life within a cave. Learn about Indiana’s geological past from experts while you are in the field.  Sit back, relax, and let us be your guide to the exploration of a whole different world right below your feet!  *Please note – both Marengo Cave and Bluespring Caverns are not wheelchair accessible.
