Jeff McBride, who is listed three times in the Guinness Book of World Records for card and coin manipulation, will perform his family-oriented show “Magic Unmasked,” a fusion of mask, myth, drama and illusion, at 1 p.m. on March 12 at the Winchester Cultural Center Theater, 3130 S. McLeod Drive, just north of Desert Inn Road. Tickets are $10.

McBride was most recently featured on the television series “Masters of Illusion,” mixes whimsy and magic, with a spice of comedy and audience interaction in a style that reflects a lifelong study of magic. In “Magic Unmasked,” He performs beyond mere tricks and illusions as he engages all the senses and uses imagination to transport the audience to an enchanted realm where showers of fireflies, masks and personas live in a rapid-fire production.
Aside from his performance skills, McBride is a sought-after lecturer and workshop leader for such diverse groups as The Smithsonian, The Disney Institute, the International Brotherhood of Magicians, the Center for Symbolic Studies and others.
