The Magic of Kevin Spencer

Virtual Magic Show
1:00 p.m. & 2:00 p.m. Sunday October 4, 2020

This is a special performance for individuals on the autism spectrum, as well as people with other developmental or cognitive disabilities who may benefit, not for the general public.

About the show:

TDF will host The Magic of Kevin Spencer via Zoom--a  show featuring eye-popping illusions and the chance to try a trick at home. For 25 years, Spencer toured with one of the largest theatrical illusion productions in the US. Now he focuses on using his magic to inspire, teach and build community. We encourage the whole family to watch in awe together!
