will bring magic
to White Swan
WHITE SWAN - World famous illusionist Andre Kole will
perform at the White Swan High School gym Saturday, Nov. 20. Considered to be
one of today's great magical entertainers, Kole has performed in 78 countries
for millions of people. He has also appeared on national television in more
than 40 countries.
The 7 p.m. show is being hosted by the Harrah Grace Brethren
Kole's full-stage "Magical Spectacular" is hard to
label as just another magic show. It includes people materializing and
dematerializing and other "impossible" phenonemon.
"As an illusionist, I do not waste my time trying to
accomplish that which is possible, but rather I concentrate on that which is
impossible," Kole said.
Other areas he will delve into at the Nov. 20 show include
his first-hand investigation of the possibility of communication with the dead
and other psychic phenomena from India and Egypt.
Several years ago Kole was challenged to examine the
miracles of Jesus Christ from the standpoint of an illusionist and a skeptic,
to determine if the miracles of Christ could have been the work of a master
magician. In making his investigation, Kole said he made some discoveries that
changed the course of his life. He will share some of his findings during his
White Swan performance.
Kole often appears as a special traveling representative for
Campus Crusade for Christ International.
Ticket information is available by calling (509) 848-2609.
