Handcrafted Mysteries: The immersive magic of Greg Van Holsbeck
July 7 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until August 18, 2022
Handcrafted Mysteries is an immersive magic performance featuring the original illusions of Greg Van Holsbeck. Greg’s goal is to create a unique experience by putting the magic in the hands of the audience. The magic takes place all around the room and gets everyone involved.
“Handcrafted Mysteries” previously ran at The Claremont Forum Bookstore for 56 weeks in 2019/2020 and it is finally back home with plenty of brand new illusions.
The mission statement of Handcrafted Mysteries is to only showcase illusions that are created by Greg and can’t be seen anywhere else.
