Magician Adam Trent will perform at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center on Friday, Feb. 19 at 7:30 p.m.
Trent’s approach to magic is fresh and new. He has always thought that a magic show should first be entertaining. He doesn’t want people to remember just the “tricks,” but also the laughs and the memories.
Trent can’t remember a time in his life when he wasn’t performing. He began with birthday party shows at age 9, moving onto corporate events when he was 13. At 14, he started street performing, which taught him how to build a crowd and be entertaining in the worst of situations. At 18, he went to college in Los Angeles and earned a degree in finance and entertainment marketing. Apart from learning that a tiger could be tax-deductible, he got a crash course in LA’s music and comedy scene. He realized that the most important element in a show is the performer’s connection to the audience. So that’s the way Trent approaches his performance style.
