Grand illusion show to support Baldwin GIVEs

MILLEDGEVILLE — Nearly 40 Baldwin High School students have logged more than 2,500 volunteer hours to aid local organizations through Baldwin GIVEs. In order to showcase the selfless service of local teens and provide financial support to the running of the program, Mark “The Magic Man” Hulett will demonstrate some of his grandest illusions during his new upcoming show called “Deja Vu” to fade the line between dream and reality.

“This year’s show is based on dreams. A lot of people have different types of dreams, like dreams of flying, floating, falling and some dreams are nightmares. Some people even dream about cars and money, and I’ll cover that too in the show. Every effect will be based on a dream,” Hulett said. “This is a big show; there will be no balloon animals and no card tricks. The main thing I want to do is highlight all of these kids and what they do volunteer-wise. They’ve logged in over 2,000 hours and it just goes unseen.”

Slated for 7 p.m. Saturday, March 16 in the Baldwin Fine Arts Center, the show is sponsored by Z97 FM and Childre Nissan. Combining Hulett’s comedy, unique ability to tell heartwarming stories, and magical appeal with grand illusions, the 90-minute show will consist of multiple grand illusions, assistants, costume changes, lighting effects and audience participation. 

“This is something new that no one has ever seen me do before. I know that some people came out last year when we did ‘Solitaire,’ but this year’s show is bigger and better,” he said. “I will make a car appear, and try to escape while underwater for three-minutes. I hope people come out and support Baldwin GIVEs. The community only gets to see me do a big show like this once a year, and a lot of folks last year wished they knew how good it was going to be.”
