On Friday the 13 Conrad will present his show in the Clover Theater from 11:00am-12:00pm. Come to the show, enjoy the fun, and experience the wonder.

Conrad had his first experience with magic at the age of three when his Godfather, showed him a card trick. He soon caught the magic bug and began to perfect the simple trick. His father gave him his "First Magic Set” as a gift and he mastered every trick in the set by the age of 4. His appetite for magic grew even more after attending several magic shows sponsored by the Hillsborough High School Magic Club. From that moment on, Conrad was hooked, and devoted his time to learning everything he could about the art. In June 2008, Conrad performed in the Al Hillman Excellence in Magic competition, in which he received first place. Since then Conrad was become an awarding magician in both close-up and stage magic. Conrad’s unique style or performing encompasses many different forms of magic, ranging from close-up and mentalism, to grand illusions.
