Stars of magic unite to help ailing friend

Worcester – Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Daniels Theater at Clark University in Worcester, nine world-class magicians are coming together, for the first time in one very special show, to help Boston-area magician, and their very dear friend, David Oliver.

More than just a talented magician, for more than 25 years, Oliver has mentored, directed and taught many of today’s finest young magicians from around the globe. Recently, he was diagnosed with a rare lung disease, and the only treatment is a double lung transplant. In an effort to assist their friend in dealing with mounting medical bills, these stars of magic have put together this show, to help a friend who has always been there to help them.

“The caliber of talent for David’s fundraiser is tremendous,” said Lyn Dillies, co-producer of the event.  “The generosity of these nationally known magicians is nothing short of phenomenal.  I mean, in many ways we all feel so powerless to help David.

“If we could really do magic, his lungs would be healed, but we know that with our collective talents we can conjure up some much needed financial assistance for our beloved friend. He has given so much to all of us in magic through the years, it’s now time to show him how much we care about him and that we will do anything to help him through this very difficult time.”

Anyone who attends the show will witness some of the highest quality magic in the country.  A few examples of the line-up include Jon Stetson, the greatest American Mentalist; Eric DeCamps, World-renowned sleight of hand artist from NYC’s “Pure Magic: A Performance of Contemporary Conjuring”; Mike Bent, Boston Magazine’s “Best of Boston” who has performed six times at the White House; and Lyn Dillies, “America’s Premier Female Illusionist” who headlines major theaters around the country and has made magic history with her work with elephants.

Don’t miss this once in a lifetime special evening and the chance to do your own magic by helping David Oliver.

Performances will be held at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.at the Daniels Theater in Worcester. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children 14 or under.  Tickets may be purchased online at www.letsdomagic.org or by calling 203-877-0157.
