Abracadabra won't make child abuse disappear, but the folks at Safe Place Washington County Child Advocacy Center hope a magic show fundraiser will help raise money and awareness.
The fourth annual Family Magic Show is scheduled for Saturday at The Maryland Theatre, in downtown Hagerstown. The show is a fundraiser for Safe Place, a child advocacy center in Hagerstown.
The show's producer and emcee, Russell Gary Smith -- whose stage name is RG Smith -- will return, and he's brought with him a traveling team of performers to end a six-city magic show tour throughout Pennsylvania and Maryland.
On the roster this year are: Ardan James the Animated Illusionist, The Reed Sisters, Stoil and Ekaternia, and Jessie and James and Mutts Gone Nuts.
Smith said the two-hour show is ideal for kids ages 6 and older. The age limit has nothing to do with inappropriate content. The show is intended to be family friendly.
