The Casino Theatre in Vandergrift, PA, will offer four magicians with more than 80 years of experience in a celebration of  mystery in “An Evening of October Magic”  Organizers believe the magic show will bring the community together.

 

The masters of ceremony will be Gregory Strucaly, “Gregor the Magician,” a four time winner of Ring 158’s Magician of the Year title.  Mr. Strucaly describes his role as “the glue that keeps it all together.”

 

Dan Kuniak is up next with his larger effects and illusions.  He desires to add a bit of “spookiness for Halloween.”  Mr. Kuniak‘s appreciation of magic began watching Bill Bixby perform.  “That was the kicker for me!  I also saw someone do a professional trick while in the Boy Scouts.  That was all I needed to make up my mind — I was to become a magician.” 

 

He keeps the interest alive for young people as well by performing his incredible Magic of Recycling program show in Allegheny, Beaver, and now Butler Counties and teaches children the “fun” of recycling. 

 

Da’vo, David Onderisin, received his first magic apparatus for his First Holy Communion present.  After taking a break from the Art during high school he rekindled his affection for it during his honeymoon.  He had a chance to see a magic show in Vegas and decided to enroll in the Chavez College in Pasadena, Calif., “because I wasn’t getting anywhere magically.”

 

Da’vo describes his routine as a manipulation presentation rather than one using larger props.  He performs a Miser’s Dream, utilizing a custom built rainbow and pot of gold prop to hold the appearing coins.  He combines the coin work with billiard balls and dove work.  In essence, Da’vo told reporters, “I am a ‘magic with hands’ person.”

 

Tim Kutch was asked to perform and compete in the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas at the age of 19.  The competition not only gave him a chance to work with eleven other very talented young magicians but also perfect his dove act with Lance Burton and Siegfried & Roy.  His enjoyment of his chosen profession has not faded.  “Magic is my life,” he said.
