Over-the-edge mentalist/illusionist appears April 19

Wayne Hoffman
4/3/2006 —
Mentalist-illusionist, Wayne Hoffman, has earned standing ovations from the toughest audience there is - college students! Hoffman will bring his spellbinding act to Penn State Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, April 19, with two performances. Complementing the evening show will be a gourmet dessert bar. For those who would like a free preview of the evening show, Hoffman will whet your appetite for startling entertainment with a "walk-around" performance in the Café Commons at noon.

Whether he's performing for college students, Fortune 500 executives, or well-known celebrities, Hoffman's visual illusions and psychological stunts create a mind-blowing form of mystery entertainment that leaves his audience spellbound. The show is a hands-on production built on audience interaction - involving the audience in every twist and turn. He reads minds, performs impossible illusions, eats razorblades, and gives away money! He has predicted international headline news weeks before it happened and has also predicted winning lottery numbers. Hoffman is perhaps best known for his insane stunts like driving an $118,000 custom car sixteen miles – blindfolded! Or, the straitjacket escape, a stunt that puts him inside a straitjacket with a scorpion - then he gets hoisted 100 feet into the air by his ankles! Note that Hoffman is banned from every major casino in the country for his talent with playing cards.

Reservations can be made by contacting Jackie Warnick-Piatt at 570-675-9284 or jackiewp@psu.edu. Cost for students is only $5; cost for community/faculty/staff is $10. The show will take place in the Hayfield House Community Room. Audience arrival is requested by 6:00 p.m., desserts will be served at 6:30 p.m., and the show will begin at 7:00 p.m
