Hold onto your hats and don't blink an eye! Gordon Russ, magician to the world is coming to your library! Gordon and his trusty sidekick, George the Raccoon, have traveled the globe in search of smiles, laughs, and fun and they are coming to see you.  A master at audience involvement, Gordon "invents" magic on the spot, using the most ordinary items imaginable. Couple this with a limitless array of tried and true tricks of the trade, and you have a performance that is second to none. "Magic is serious business, but the main idea is fun. I want everybody smiling and saying, 'How'd he do that?'" Gordon says. Come along with Gordon on his fantastic adventure and see magic the way it was meant to be--for the fun of it!

AND do not forget to make and bring a "PICK ME" sign to the show. When Gordon needs a volunteer, be sure to hold that sign and wave it around so he will know who really wants to help.

Maybe you remember the original Electra Woman and Dyna Girl on TV in the 1970's or maybe you know Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart from YouTube. Whatever the reason, join us as we celebrate the release of this feature length reboot of Electra Woman and Dyna Girl.

Crime fighting duo Electra Woman and Dyna Girl are small-town heroes with no real powers. After a cleaning up of their little city, these two super friends are about to make it to the big time. Swept up in the star-studded glamor of Hollywood, Electra Woman soon finds everything she's ever dreamed of: fame, fortune, a new arsenal of high-tech gadgets, the attention of every super-stud in town - but Dyna Girl wonders what price must be paid for her newfound stardom? When the city falls into crisis, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl must battle evil dilemmas, growing egos and - of course- supervillains. If they want to save the day, they'll have to save each other first.
