Some are born to be doctors. Some are born to be lawyers. John Greene was born for magic.
Greene's talents will be on display at 8 p.m. April 11 in the McDonald-Belton Theater on the North Platte Community College South Campus. His performance is free and open to the public.
It's the first time Greene has been to the college. He's part of Wand Enterprises, the same entertainment booking agency that the NPCC Student Life Department worked with to bring in hypnotist Dr. Jim Wand in January.
"The Student Life Department is happy now to bring in an associate of Dr. Jim Wand, because of the years of trust and friendship we have established with him and the outstanding reputation Wand Enterprises has for producing quality performances," said Augie Sanchez, NPCC assistant director of housing and student activities. "We are excited to welcome John Greene to our campus and look forward to being amazed by his abilities."
Greene is a performer unlike any other. As a magician, mentalist and hypnotist, he has spent his life getting inside the minds of audiences large and small to create the impossible.
A pack of cards, a coin or whatever else he can get his hands on – Greene can turn almost anything into a miniature miracle right under someone's nose.
Blending several years of performance with a pinch of wit and a dash of charm, Greene creates an unforgettable act every time he takes the stage.
