This is our summer kick off show for Summer Quest! Ran D’ Shine is a fantastic magic show! This is for the entire family. FREE!
In the time that it takes you to read these words, Ran’D has already read your mind and likely figured out which card you will pluck from the deck a week from now. With the flick of a wrist, the Philadelphia native has become a global phenomenon by woving the most diverse and wildly appreciative audiences for more than a decade. His unique style and presentation so impressed President Barack Obama that he was invited to be a special performer for the “Salute to Heroes” at the 44th Presidential Inauguration Banquet and Ball in 2009. As his fans will so gleefully attest, he is so much more that a magician!
Recommended for ages 8 and older. No registration is required. Sponsored by a generous donation from The Friends of the Lower Providence Community Library.
