Great Scott's Comedy and Illusion Show

A $20 bill repairs itself, a mysterious hat predicts the future and an audience member levitates. Filled with laughter and magic, the show uses crowd participation to fill a bucket full of coins, make playing cards switch places and bring back a green handkerchief. For ages 3 and up. OPEN TO ALL!
