Jason Bishop: Straight Up Magic at Oxford Performing Arts Center
October 29, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm$15
From his breathtaking Double Levitation to his cutting edge Op-Art and Plasma illusions, Jason Bishop features stunning & original state of the art magic. One thing that distinguishes Bishop is his virtuosity. Each show features award winning sleight of hand, exclusive grand illusions and close-up magic projected onto a huge movie screen. No other touring illusionist showcases such a diverse array of talents. Additionally, the show is delivered with a totally modern energy and an outstanding rock & pop soundtrack.
“I am recommending you and your fabulous
show to all of my colleagues.”
Christine Brown, UMASS Lowell Center for the Arts – Lowell, MA
The show is surprisingly funny and truly magical. Bishop cuts through the usual hype and focuses on entertaining audiences with one remarkable illusion after another. Each routine is presented in his unique style. Some pieces feature more laughs than are typically expected from an illusionist, while other effects literally demonstrate sleight of hand skill performed at a world-class level.
“…a huge success! People were talking about this show for days and days after the performance! They immediately requested that Jason Bishop return…”
Carolyn Brode, Gorton Performing Arts Center – Lake Forest, IL
Jason engages the audience on and offstage. He touches them with a snow filled theatre and piques their imaginations when a borrowed dollar bill generously transforms into a one hundred dollar bill. Intelligent lighting, engaging audience participation and countless costume changes by his assistant Kim are added elements that help make each performance unforgettable.
“Great show – and our Patrons loved it, young and old.”
Lara Plocha, Imperial Theatre – Augusta, GA
2007 saw Illusionist Jason Bishop recognized by his peers when he was awarded magic’s prestigious “Jack Gwynne award for Excellence in Presentation”. The previous year college campuses voted him A.P.C.A.’s “Best Performing Artist of the Year”.
