The Magic Variety Show brings an evening of family fun to the Gifford Elementary School Auditorium, 8332 Northwestern Ave., Franksville, on Thursday, Oct. 1. Show time is at 6:30 p.m.

Timothy Tegge, a versatile entertainer, leads this fast-paced show that features illusions, comedy, juggling and clowning. Tegge will make plates spin, handkerchiefs fly and even get a few kids in on the magic.

The Matagriov Duo, the show’s special guest stars, share an amazing quick-change illusion in which their colorful costumes are changed dozens of times right before your eyes! The Magic Variety Show also features the amazing balancing skills of superstar Yaro, direct from the Moscow Circus.

The Magic Variety Show is sponsored by the Wisconsin Jaycees. Admission is $14 for adults; $12 for kids (age 14 and younger). Look for free kids tickets at many area businesses, including Franksville Oil & LP (Mobil), Klema Feeds, Meadows Family Restaurant, Kathy’s Beauty Shack, Franksville Bank of Liquors, Greg’s Catering, Cabbageheads, A&W drive-in, Supermart (Marathon), Daily Grind and Citgo/Wendy’s (I-94 and Hwy 20).
