Ron Giesecke’s dad took him to his first magic show at the now-defunct Busch Gardens in Van Nuys, Ca. He told himself, “If I ever grow up, I’m gonna do this one day.”
Though he never did grow up, he still managed to forge a portion of his living with a deck of cards. And thus, the idea for this show.
Taking the time-tested phrase, “Find something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life,” Ron decided that these shows would showcase his “work.” And what better place to do it, but in his office—the stage. Cards are his paperwork.
If you’ve seen him in the past, you’ll know he possesses consummate skill, and a ridiculous vocabulary. Ron intends to peel back the history of his work, and even perform a few things that are still in “Beta testing,” just like any industry tends to do. New material is afoot!
This show is also special, as it will inaugurate the brand new stage and theater for The Arts Theater. They have had quite a journey since their 36-seat Cottonwood theater was sold, and now bring a beautiful 49-seat venue to Anderson. It needs to be seen to be believed!
This is a chance to be a part of not only local theater history—but to bring your family and friends to witness a set of routines that are borne of skill, passion, and years of dedication.
Children are welcome, but the show is vocabulary-heavy and may elude the smallest of little ears.
