      In the very heart of the picturesque Ouachitas, Hot Springs is the home of The Maxwell Blade Theater of Magic, which is now in its 17th successful year. Blade has always dreamed of bringing such an event to this beautiful area. Now, with the help of Jay Scott Berry, a world renowned magician and producer, that dream is set to become a reality.

      Like Blade, Berry has grown up with a love for the theatre, music and the Art of magic. At the age of 19, he was the youngest magician to ever perform at Hollywood's famed Magic Castle. Jay has toured the globe for 30 years, from Las Vegas to Monte Carlo, delighting audiences with, what is often called, "The closest thing to real magic you will ever see!"

      These two wizards have now joined forces to conjure up this amazing event, which promises to draw in many more of the world's finest magicians for an unforgettable weekend. With a festive flair certain to appeal to young and old alike, the historic town center of Hot Springs will be transformed into a fantastic wonderland, with colorful banners, street performers, a magical marketplace, contests, surprises and more!

      A full spectrum of delightful shows will be held at The Maxwell Blade Theater and select venues throughout the weekend, ranging from intimate close-up to spectacular stage illusions. Also in store is a grand gala evening, reminiscent of an earlier, more elegant time; a bygone era that lives on in our hearts and in the imagination of a child.

      “And that”, Berry says, “Is what this is really all about. Anyone who suggests that there is no such thing as real magic doesn't understand what real magic is. Magic lives forever, in our dreams, in our imagination. Magic is the most ancient and mysterious of Arts. We amaze, we amuse and we inspire. Even though the effects may be illusion, the experience is very real.”

      Blade agrees and adds, “Hot Springs is the perfect place for such a magical gathering. This is, after all, a city built on fun. This whole area is renowned for its natural beauty, historic buildings and family friendly atmosphere. This is truly a magical place, unique in all the world.”

      The common dream that these two men share is to bring a true sense of wonder and amazement to an audience. Each has spent their lives perfecting just that. The common vision is a joyful family event that allows everyone to experience the ancient art of magic, not on TV, but live, in front of your eyes. The common dream is the Weekend of Wonder.

      In a world that has nearly forgotten the magic, two wizards still remember. With that dream, that timeless memory being brought to life, the stage is set for something truly magical to happen. And that something will happen in Hot Springs this September. Make plans now to join the celebration!
