"Finger Flicking Frolicking"? Sounds a bit naughty, doesn't it? But if you want to see expert examples of this act, don't head to the strip clubs. Instead, catch the Society of Memphis Magicians show on October 13th at the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center.
This year's show features a cast of nationally and internationally known magicians and illusionists, who will perform "grand stage illusions," mentalism (mind-reading), juggling, and extreme skills "not to be tried at home." For "close-up miracles," a projection screen will let the audience see "the intimate details of Finger Flicking Frolicking."
That alone, we think, is worth the price of admission.
The event is hosted by the Society of Memphis Magicians, otherwise known as Ring 16 of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. The Memphis group is one of the oldest in the country.
Society of Memphis Magicians, Saturday, October 13th, at 7:30 p.m. at the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center. $12. For more information about the event and Ring 16, go to www.ring16.org.
