In 1949, Kent Cummins, then age six, fell in love with magic and vowed, “I'm going to be a magician!” His first public show was in his home town of Del Rio at the age of nine. He won his first trophy at 17, and became a full-time professional Austin-based magician at 43. In 1993, when he turned 50, Kent founded The Fantastic Magic Camp. He has helped thousands of children and the adults who care about them using the fascination and fun of magic. In this exciting presentation, Kent shares the way magic can be a metaphor. You don't have to be a magician to create a life that is truly magical!
