A Touch of Magic

Join us for an evening of fun with Comedy Magician & Entertainer Cameron Zvara! Cameron’s show is filled with magic, comedy, juggling, music, and TONS of audience participation… You won’t want to miss out!

At the ripe old age of 6, Cameron Zvara knew he was going to become a magician.  In 3rd grade, Cameron began acting in community theatre where he developed his stage presence and showmanship. Using a combination of acting and magic, he created his first “professional magic show” at 12 years old. Since then, Cameron has opened live on stage for the Detroit Tigers Winter Caravan Tour, was named Michigan’s Young Entrepreneur by the National Federation of Independent Business, spoke at TEDxDetroit, received his bachelor’s in marketing, and currently performs 200+ shows every year! This Fall, Cameron takes his show to Europe on a month long military base tour performing for our troops and their families overseas.

What started out as a simple dream, has turned into a wild ride in the entertainment industry. Cameron cannot wait to share his magic with you soon!”
