Magician Jason Bishop coming to Shawnee State University


November 10


Magician Jason Bishop will be performing Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 pm at the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts.

Magician Jason Bishop will be performing as part of the 2015-16 Southern Ohio Performing Arts Association/Shawnee State University season at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 10, at the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts.

The audience will be left breathless by Bishop’s fast moving series of illusions set to an outstanding rock and pop soundtrack. His stunning performance will also include the rare Double Levitation, where both he and his assistant, Kim Hess, are suspended midair at the same time.

Each show features award winning sleight of hand, cutting edge Optical-Art and Plasma illusions, close-up magic projected onto large movie screens.

Bishop is an international award-winning illusionist who was the youngest person to win the Magician’s Alliance of Eastern States Stage Award and one of the youngest people to compete in the Society of American Magicians World-Class competition. He has entertained celebrities like Chris Penn, Jennifer Aniston and Bam Margera and at notable venues as Celebrity Cruise lines, Cabaret Du Monde in Paris, France, and LiveNation’s Bamboozle Festival.

Tickets are $25 for the general public, $23 for seniors, $17 for students and $15 for children under the age of 12. Upper tier tickets will be sold at discounted prices. Special pricing for groups and families is also available.

Tickets are available from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the McKinley Box Office, or by calling the VRCFA at (740)351-3600, or online through Ticketmaster. Additional information can also be found on the SOPAA website or VRCFA website.

The Richard D. Marting Foundation sponsored the performance of The Jason Bishop Show.

The 2015-16 SOPAA/SSU season is presented with the support of the Ohio Arts Council, an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, the City of Portsmouth, OH, The SSU Development Foundation, the Martings Foundation and the Scioto Foundation.
