Enjoy a beverage from our concession stand while experiencing skilled local artists sharing their work in the intimate UIS Studio Theatre. These short events will leave you with time for dinner afterwards to make for a great date night!
Join us for our first magic event in the UIS Studio Theatre. We can assure you you’ll be amused and entertained by two locally-based magicians, and leave with a deeper appreciation for the theatrical art form of magic!
Rha-Bea (pronounced ra bay) has existed his entire life. Local to the Springfield area, he recently returned from a three-week tour of Canada with The Vampire Circus where he performed magic, clowned, and emceed. Hosts around the nation have warned audiences of his antics, all of which he excitedly brings to you!
Jesse James is one of the Midwest’s most unknown magicians. He recently performed “Spirits From Beyond” at the Salem on 7th Theatre during Petersburg’s Terror on the Square. With a flair for the sarcastic and a deprecating loathing for one’s self, it’s a good thing he’s got world class magic – whatever the heck that means – and his mindreading is at least 26% accurate, according to most four-year-olds!
