 Our 2016 Feature Performer ~ Mighty Mike ~ 

Combining years of juggling, magic, and balloon art with the lost art of strongman feats (driving a nail through a board with bare hand, phone book/card tearing, balancing heavy objects, and bending metal bars), Mike created a unique show bringing a form of traditional entertainment into the modern era. 

The lessons of the old time strongmen are carried forward in the message of the show: healthy habits, discipline, mind over matter, and positive motivation. However, the show also takes a page from the art of modern busking: quick wit, audience interaction, and fun.

Professor Wick's Incredible Magic Factory


Everyone loves to be amazed! Professor Wick has been doing just that for over 20 years. Born from the whimsical world of STEAMPUNK, this presentation features some of the most magical machine ever devised in the illustrious Factory Fantastic; a wonderful blend of mechanical wizardry, music and comedy delivered by outlandish steampunk characters. This is a highly interactive presentation where lucky members of the audience perform spectacular miracles without even knowing how they are doing it.
