The DCA Celebrates the Magic of the Holidays in Door County

In the tradition of masterful magician Harry Houdini, Tim and Robin Balster wave their wands as the curtain rises on a fun-filled family performance. Celebrating the world’s holiday traditions, Season’s Greetings will be presented at the Door Community Auditorium on Saturday, November 29 at 3 and 7 pm.

Staged in a winter wonderland, Season’s Greetings features the colorful magic of mischievous elves, toy soldiers, and snow-white doves. Children and adults will delight in the mystery and surprise of magic, some tricks traditional while others are new and innovative.

With a nod to Houdini, who immigrated to Appleton, Wisconsin from Hungary in 1874, the Balsters are superior at creating mystifying magic. Doves soar, candles disappear, and a Christmas elf floats in air. The finale even features one of Houdini’s most famous tricks: “the metamorphosis.”

Whether celebrating Christmas with a bright shining tree, commemorating Hanukkah with the lighting of the Menorah, or honoring African heritage during Kwanzaa, Season’s Greeting brings peoples of all cultures and traditions to a place of universal understanding. This one-hour program will kick off the holidays with a rare combination of fun and frolic.
