Leon Etienne Brings his Magic to The Pullo Center Oct. 26

10/25/2010 —

Illusionist Leon Etienne brings to the stage a spectacular theatrical magic production and takes his audience on a journey filled with dramatic illusions, personality, and state-of-the-art theatrical effects. Etienne will bring his magic to Penn State York’s Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center) on Tuesday, Oct. 26 for a free performance at 7 p.m. His performance is part of Penn State York’s Cultural and Performing Artists Series sponsored by the campus and MediaOnePA.

In the world of magic, manipulation is often thought of as one of the most difficult skills sets to master and Etienne’s amazing signature award-winning manipulation act is featured in every performance.

Etienne’s interest in magic began at the age of 12 when he was grounded and had to spend time in his room. He came across a book of magic tricks he had received as a gift and since that day he was hooked on magic and illusions. Etienne has performed all over the globe and has received several prestigious awards including CNY Magician of the Year and Stage Magic Champion from the Magician’s Alliance of Eastern States. He has had the honor of performing as the opening act for several major national recording artists.

When Etienne is not performing, he is regularly practicing and striving to learn new techniques and improve his current skills. In addition to developing his own original magic effects, Etienne has traveled the world spending time developing his craft and learning from modern day masters of magic. He is also one of only 200 magicians worldwide who attends Fechter’s Finger Flicking Frolic, an annual by invitation only magic convention. This convention offers participants a chance to study and perform with the world’s best magicians.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see Etienne. No tickets are needed for this performance. Mark your calendar for the next event in the free Cultural and Performing Artists Series, Ron G. comedian, on Wednesday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. in The Pullo Center.
