Illusionist Mike Super will perform at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20, at Escher Auditorium, Benedicta Arts Center, College of Saint Benedict, as part of the 2017-18 Fine Arts Series.
You might have seen Super on a couple of popular television shows. In 2007, he won NBC’s magic competition series, “Phenomenon.” His website claims he is the only magician in history to win a live magic competition on a primetime U.S. network.
Super followed that up by being a finalist on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” series in 2014.
The secret to his success is his natural ability to entertain and fascinate people. Super has pioneered a new form of magic with his own inimitable, down-to-earth style and personality, bringing magic “back to the people.”
Super’s fans are known as “Superfreaks.” Among the people Super has performed for are Ellen DeGeneres, Jay Leno, fellow magician Criss Angel and Craig Ferguson, to name just a few.
His magic bridges generation gaps and creates memories that will last a lifetime. Take part in a mystifying, theatrical experience sophisticated enough for adults, cool enough for teens and magical enough for children’s imaginations.
Tickets for Super’s performance are $30 for adults, $27 for seniors, $23 for CSB/SJU faculty and staff and $15 for students and youth.
There are also a limited number of tickets which include the performance and a meet-and-greet with Super at 6 p.m. This is a magical experience where guests enjoy close-up magic, autographs and pictures. Tickets for the meet-and-greet and performance are $55 for adults, $52 for seniors, $48 for CSB/SJU faculty and staff and $40 for students and youth.
For tickets, call the Benedicta Arts Center Box Office at 320-363-5777 or order online.
The event is sponsored in part by Central Minnesota Credit Union, Times Media and D.J. Bitzan Jewelers.
These activities are made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
