Illusionist Caleb Alexander

When: Sat., June 24, 6-8 p.m. 2017

Is this event just an illusion? No, but there are plenty of illusions at Caleb Alexander’s June 24 performance. A Charleston native, Alexander received his first magic kit at three years old. Ever since then, his star has risen; the 18-year-old illusionist has toured South Carolina and has magic kits for sale at local toy store chain, Wonder Works, during the holiday season. In addition, he will be on tour again this summer and is a headlining act at the Coastal Carolina Fair. Alexander incorporates popular songs and EDM into his act, saying it helps separate him from other local magicians as his show is “very young.” He has also uses magic tricks to promote his shows, saying: “‘Hey, do you like magic?’ Most people say yes, because magic is kind of cool. I would show you a trick, impress you, and then tell you about the show.” Before Alexander takes the stage for his 90-minute act, Charleston singer/songwriter Haley Mae Campbell opens.
