Weehawken and Sherbino to host a one-man magic show this weekend

The Weekhawn Royal actors present an evening of illusions as illusionist Mason Unverferth, 12, will perform at the 610 Courtyard in Ridgway on Friday, Sept. 11 and Saturday, Sept. 12. Unverferth has been studying the art of magic for 18 months and has been inspired to master multiple tricks since starting his endeavor.

Support from his family and his fellow Weehawken Royal Actors have helped Mason gain confidence and continue to improve his work.

Unverferth has been with the Weehawken Royal Actors for four years with various roles in several productions that have challenged him. Unverferth hinted being on the stage as an illusionist will present a different atmosphere.

“As an illusionist, I am interacting and engaging with the audience. As an actor, the audience is not talking back to you, there is no conversation, with magic, there is bantering back and forth with the audience,” he said in a news release.

Unverferth’s first public performance of “Impossible Illusions” will begin at 6 p.m. The performance will run approximately 45 minutes.

Advance tickets can be ordered at sherbino.org. Seating is limited.
