The City of Birmingham is known as the Magic City due to its rapid growth in population and prestige. Being in Pell City, we can’t help but desire to have little magic of our own – that’s why we’re bringing the magic here!
The current President of Ring 35, Brian Reaves, is a Pell City native. He, his wife, Lisettet Vivas Reaves, and son, Khris Reaves, are also magicians as well as members of Ring 35. Brian and Lisettet are Worship Pastors at Victory Christian Church in Pell City. Khris is Victory’s Student Pastor and Creative Director. This will be the fourth Magical Evening that they have performed on the CEPA stage, and you’re invited!
Back in January of 1933, the many followers of magic who resided in Birmingham came together to form what we know as the Magic City Magic Club. The first president was Mr. Goodlette Dodson, a world famous manipulator of card fans. The International Brotherhood of Magicians formally issued a charter for the organization on October 26, 1944, creating Ring 35 with 22 members.
On January 20, 1996, the name of the club was changed to honor Drennen and his lifelong interest in furthering the art of magic. The Ring has since been steadily active and meets once a month.
This Saturday, Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. CEPA is pulling the Magic straight out of our Magic City and placing it directly on the CEPA stage. A Magical Evening will feature six magicians on the CEPA stage for an all-new night of magic and laughter for the entire family!
Join them for non-stop illusions in a brand-new show, culminating in a finale that you won’t believe. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with close-up magic in the lobby, VIP Show at 6:00 p.m., and the main show beginning at 7 p.m.
