Castle Stars Line-Up for Rotary Show

 

The Ventura (CA) County Star reports the Rotary Club of Camarillo, now celebrating its 50th year, will host a magic show with performers from Hollywood’s Magic Castle on June 24.

Paul Dwork serves in the Rotary in addition to his position as owner of Merlin’s Technology, a science and magic shop in Camarillo.

The family show takes place at 8 p.m. Mr. Dwork notes, “It’s really for all age groups. I’ve always done it that way. (The audience) will be mesmerized with six different styles of magic, six different people with different magical skills. It’s really a chance to see something you’re not going to see anywhere else.”

In addition to Dwork, the event will star Matt Marcy, Danny Cole, Bob Bolivar, Hillel Gitter and Gary Ringler of Camarillo.

Marcy, a comedian as well as a magician, will serve as emcee. Watch for him to perform acts like the “blender of death,” which his Web site describes as “the funniest and most dangerous escape you’ll ever see involving a borrowed watch, 40 seconds and an Osterizer blender with a mind of its own.” He also is known for his Mattlibs and the “invisible flying whoopee cushion” trick.

Gitter, also known as Mr. Balloon, performs much of his act bouncing around stage in, well, a balloon.

Proceeds from the show will primarily benefit the Rotaract Club of California State University, Channel Islands, said Joe Dacanay, the Rotary Club’s Rotaract chairperson. Rotaract is the college leg of Rotary International, a worldwide organization that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards and helps build goodwill and peace. This year marks Rotary International’s 100th anniversary.
