Just southwest of Austin, along a country road, sits a mysterious and little-known theater and  museum. There’s no other venue in Texas like it.

Magic’s Theater, on Fitzhugh Road, is the state’s only theater and museum exclusively devoted to our art. It may be the world’s best kept magician’s secret.

And owner John “Magic” Wright will be leading Assembly 206 members on a tour of the facility on Monday, Aug. 17th, during the club’s regularly scheduled meeting.

John’s museum includes a replica of Harry Houdini’s famous Chinese Water Torture Cell, wardrobe and props from Doug Henning, and photographs and posters of contemporary magicians. Also be prepared for a few other surprises during our visit.

The event gets started at 7:30. (We’re starting a little later than usual, to give folks time to make it to the venue.)  It’s free an open to Assembly members. For information about joining the Assembly, please email club secretary Jake Dyer, at jakedyer@yahoo.com.

And if you’re on Facebook, please share the invite with your magician friends.
