An all-ages audience of approximately 400 enjoyed the Magic of David Garrard at Arkansas State University last Friday evening and gave David a standing ovation as the final curtain fell.  David performed in the beautiful Fowler Center as part of the school’s offerings to the city of Jonesboro.  Theater Department Chair and ASU Professor Bobby Wayne Simpson said afterwards that it had been a long time since he had seen the kind of laughter and audience response that David’s show generated.

The show began with Houdini’s famous trunk trick and concluded with Houdini’s strait jacket escape.  Mixed in was lots of magic that used members from the audience.  David also performed the seldom seem Beauty & the Barrels.
