Master Magician Peter Monticup will host an evening of prestidigitation by professional magicians. Illusions, mind-reading, transformations and teleportation will all be performed by an all-star cast. This evening of wonder and amazement is family friendly and will be Saturday, April 12th at 7:30 pm at WTA’s Gateway, 329 West Main in downtown Waynesboro.

Hosting the evening is Peter Monticup, a man who always has a bit of magic up his sleeves whether on or off the stage.  Monticup began his career in magic at the age of seven, when he became an apprentice to Professor Henry Bessette, part of the famous Miracle Team. By age seventeen, Monticup had developed a full stage show, and was the featured act at a number of magic conventions. A few years later, he purchased the House of Magic in upstate New York. For more than 30 years, he has continued to perform as well as develop his well-known magic business in addition to teaching magic to others.

Steve Pittella (aka Steve the Magic Guy) is a jolly vision of moving color as he performs non-stop, every moment filled with whimsical antics that produce excitement and laughter in his audience, both little and not so little. Pittella learned his skills on the boardwalk of Coney Island. For the past 35 years he has taken his wonderful antics to delighted audiences at such notable venues as Radio City Music Hall and New York’s town hall. He and his wife also own and operate the Boardwalk Café in Fishersville.

Lawrence Lessner began his magic career in Hollywood and later moved to New York City.  After working at the Academy of Magic Arts in Albany, New York, Lessner moved to Richmond, Va. Over the years, his solo cabaret magic act has evolved and is currently focused on “mindreading” as well as walk around magic.

The All Star Magic Show is sponsored by the Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge.
