Dixie Dooley, a seasoned Las Vegas performer and magician for 32 years, will present “Question Reality” at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at the Winchester Cultural Center, 3130 S. McLeod Drive, just north of Desert Inn Road. Tickets for the show are $10 and are available at the center box office or online at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/parks.
Dooley is among Las Vegas’ elite magicians as he is a recipient of the Merlin Award, magic’s highest honor awarded by the International Magicians Society, and has performed at the Riviera, Harrah’s, Las Vegas Hilton and former Sahara hotels, among others. Dooley has mastered the art of close-up prestidigitation, large-scale illusions and escapes.
An expert on the life and career of Harry Houdini, Dooley has been buried alive, frozen in ice, submerged in boiling water and suspended upside down in straitjackets high above Las Vegas streets – and has escaped every time. He also outsmarted Scotland Yard in order to drive blindfolded across London’s Tower Bridge.
Those interested in “Question Reality” can call the Winchester Cultural Center at (702) 455-7340 or visit the website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/parks. Clark County Parks and Recreation also can be found on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
