Two esteemed magicians will entertain at Coffeyville Community College on April 1, no fooling. Terry Elton and Pete Walterscheid will combine their talents for an evening of magic and other high jinks beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Spencer/Rounds Theatre. Admission is free.
When it comes to comedy and magic, Walterscheid takes great pride in what he presents. Walterscheid jokingly refers to himself as “world famous in certain parts of Kansas.” He is a long time member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, the Society of American Magicians, and the prestigious Academy of Magical Arts. He has been awarded a magician membership to the Magic Castle in Hollywood and keeps busy performing for banquets, festivals, corporate functions and private shows.
Walterscheid, who lives in Coffeyville, was a featured performer in the “Masters of Magic Tour 2014” that performed in the Kansas City area finishing with a sold-out crowd at Theater Lawrence in Lawrence, Kan. He has recently been awarded the title “Close-Up Magician of the Year” of the International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring #129 of the greater Kansas City area. He was a chosen performer for the closing “Comedy Magic Extravaganza” show of the Kansas City Fringe Festival the last two years. The summer of 2015 he placed third as “Stage Performer” from seven finalists at the Midwest Magic Jubilee national competition held in St. Louis.
Elton has been performing his unique blend of comedy and magic for over 35 years. From chuckles to belly laughs with subtle humor and sight gags, Elton takes his audiences on a roller coaster ride of magical entertainment featuring his own creations.
Winning awards for his own brand of magic, Elton has been named Close-up and Stand-up Magician of the year in Kansas City on several occasions as well as the Stage Magician of the year at the Midwest Magic Jubilee in St Louis Mo. The Kansas City Star calls him the “Master of Close-up Enchantment”.
Elton is a member and performer at the prestigious Magic Castle in Hollywood and his magic has taken him all over the United States and Canada.
Elton performs at sales meetings, award banquets, hospitality suites, hotels, restaurants, private parties, Renaissance festivals and an occasional comedy club.
