Gleason Magic Encounter starts June 4 in Overland Park’s Prairiefire

As a younger baby, Greg Gleason would enjoy “The Magician” starring Invoice Bixby and desire about 1 day stepping into his shoes.

“He did magic demonstrates in Las Vegas at a casino and he drove a corvette and he had a auto phone. That’s cool in the ’70s,” Gleason mentioned. “Very last calendar year, when I was doing work at Bally’s, I recognized, ‘Hey, I’m heading to my position at the casino, doing my clearly show, I am driving my corvette to the location and I’m on my cell phone. It truly is like, ‘Hey, I’m that guy from the Television set clearly show.'”

Gleason has traveled a very long highway from his early days of executing magic methods at Topeka West High Faculty, his alma mater. He has expended a great number of nights doing in Las Vegas and all over the entire world.

But now he’s coming back to the Midwest and bringing his show to the Kansas Metropolis place.
