Magician Dennis Watkins amazed audiences at Richardson Auditorium on Nov. 1.

With a combination of humor, fast talking and illusion, Watkins successfully produced a show that left audiences laughing and stunned.

Highlights of the show include Watkins reading the audience member’s mind multiple times, fitting inside a real balloon, and transforming a handkerchief into an egg.

Watkins relied heavily on audience interaction. Most of his tricks involved at least one member of the audience coming up to the stage to assist him.
