Annual Comedy & Magic Show to Feature Four National Acts 

The 19th Annual Comedy and Magic Spectacular on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. features four national acts including: one of the great innovators in magic Tony Chapek; Central Pa’s very own Brett Myers, a rising star in the world of illusion based magic; Jarol Martin, born in Cuba, who was selected at age 13 to train at the House of Culture where he began his career; and the popular R.G. Smith as Master of Ceremonies.  Held at Lampeter-Strasburg High School’s Performing Arts Center, the show is the largest annual fundraiser hosted by Rotary Club of Lancaster South. Show proceeds fund scholarships awarded to graduating seniors at three local high schools (Solanco, Penn Manor, and Lampeter-Strasburg), toward youth programming at the L-S YMCA, and to other community needs. 
For more information and to purchase tickets !  Tickets may also be purchased at the L-S YMCA location. Tickets are $17 for adults and $11 for children age 12 and under. 
One of the great innovators in magic, Tony Chapek is a unique performer who has been delighting audiences for years with his innovative blend of magic, technology and humor.  He has performed for millions of people from the showrooms of Las Vegas to the TV studios of Europe and Asia. Tony has obtained some of the most prestigious awards in magic that include 1st Place at the International Brotherhood of Magicians International competition, the Society of American Magicians’ People’s Choice Award, and the rarely presented National Award for Originality from both organizations.
In addition to touring the world, Tony has appeared on two network television specials:  “Masters of Illusion” and “World Magic Awards” where he was named “World’s Most Original Act.”
One of the rising stars in the world of magic, Brett A. Myers is an illusionist who has taken his talents around the world, performing over 140 shows on military bases, in theaters, at colleges, for conferences as well as countless churches.  Born in central PA, he began touring and entertaining at an early age. Brett and his lovely bride, Labrina, present a variety of amazing effects. Their desire is to create environments that inspire positive life change; and to challenge each person’s perception of reality via their world of illusion. Most recently, Brett Myers and his entourage have taken summer and Christmas residence at the popular Bird-in-Hand Stage in Lancaster, PA. Brett is ready for the start of a 4th successful season in Lancaster with an all new “MAGIC AND WONDER” review. 
Born in Cuba, Jarol Martin felt a great interest in the secrets of illusion and the performance of magic.  At the age of thirteen, he was accepted in “La Casa de la Cultura,” (The House of Culture) that is a place where talent is nurtured. He then began his career as a magician. A credit to his skills, he was selected for a cultural project/tour that would take him all over his native country.  On this tour, he was selected as the “Artist of the Year.” From there, he created and performed in variety shows all over Central and South America. With great acclaim, he was chosen to appear in Las Vegas in a show called “Tropiclaisimo.”  Once discovered there, he has been ever so busy in the USA and Europe.
RG Smith
For the “umpteenth time” producer and director RG Smith will be the Master of Ceremonies and tour guide for the show.  In addition to keeping things moving and bringing old jokes back to our stage, he will give you a chance to win at a quick game of BINGO.  Make sure you get your free BINGO cards----1 each, please----and let’s have fun.  The game starts right after intermission.
