Illusionist mixes fun with 'completely unforgettable' time

FORT RUCKER, Ala. (August 14, 2014) -- The Directorate of Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation excels at entertaining Fort Rucker Soldiers, Families and employees, and the upcoming illusionist show is no exception when it comes to top-notch entertainment.

The show features Chris Carter, a self-proclaimed mind freak and freak-out artist, who will be performing at the Landing on Fort Rucker from 7-9 p.m. Aug. 22, and Janice Erdlitz, DFMWR marketing director, promises it's an event not to be missed.

"We're excited to bring another top entertainment act to Fort Rucker," she said. "Chris Carter is a star in the illusionist world and his show is amazing with a good dose of funny mixed in and completely unforgettable."

"People will be amazed at what they're seeing," added Lauren Jenkins-Fazio, promotions and marketing assistant for the DFMWR business operations division. "They will be shocked and want to know all of his secrets."

Throughout the performance, people can witness displays of mind reading, visual illusions and predictions that are sure to keep people scratching their heads.

"This show will keep you expecting the unexpected," said Jenkins-Fazio. "It will get the audience to really pay attention to what they are seeing while being involved, too. It will definitely keep you thinking long after the show is over and be endlessly entertained."

Carter has toured the country entertaining in countless venues, including college campuses, and has been featured on "American Entertainment Magazine" and "The Donnie and Marie Show."

The show is an opportunity for the Fort Rucker community to experience something they might not be able to see in the local area, said Jenkins-Fazio, adding that it's important to offer that ever-changing entertainment to Soldiers and their Families.

"We want our community to have the opportunity to experience new things and the illusionist show is a great way to do that," she said. "Whether you have seen illusionists before or have never heard of them, this show is something new and exciting that will be enjoyable for everyone who comes."

"Family and MWR understands the stresses of military life, so anytime we can bring in a fun, entertaining stress reliever like an illusionist, we jump on the opportunity," added Erdlitz. "Like the doctor says, laughter is the best medicine."

Tickets are available for $12 in advance or $16 at the door, and the show is open to the public for ages 18 and older.

People can also get together with friends to purchase a VIP table on the main floor, which seats 10 people for the best seat in the house, said Erdlitz.

"It is going to be a great night and his show is amazing," said Jenkins-Fazio. "It really will be a night to remember that will have you going home and trying to figure out how he did it."
