by Rick Boretti

This is Rick Boretti's 7th year of  Magic at the Backyard Theater! Rick's show is an hour of  entertainment with lots of audience interaction and humor. Rick has worked as a close up magician at restaurants, bars and corporate events and parties for over 20 years. He also worked at schools all over the Four Corners area entertaining and teaching kids to do magic which they performed for their schools and local hospitals. No show is the same and the show is catered to the audience. Having worked many years performing shows for adults,  college students as well as shows with tweens and children have led to a wide repertoire of entertaining material. It is a family friendly show that adults enjoy just as much or more than the children. "Rick is one of the few magicians I've seen who can do magic for a one year old and still amaze the adults!"  Weekly Shows. Over 12 years old $10.  3-12 years old $5.  Kids under 3 free. Box office opens 20 minutes before show.
