On Demand October 31-November 22, 2022  |  Streaming Event Bill Blagg's Behind the Magic

Event Description

Join Bill, one of the nation’s top touring illusionists, on a journey inside his secret magic warehouse for a rare, exclusive look behind the man and the magic of Bill Blagg. Behind the Magic is filled with incredible magic, illusions, and stories, plus some of the magic will even happen live in your hands!

Paired with the performance, Bill Blagg’s Magic Science Lab will have students on the edge of their seats as they discover how science creates magic right before their very eyes! During this digital arts engagement, students join Bill to explore how magicians use the “secret” five step process (The Scientific Method) to create their illusions. Together with Bill, they will use the “secret” five steps to make a person magically float in mid air!
