Longtime readers of Theme Park University know I’m a huge fan of magic. We have covered dozens of stories on Derren Brown, David Copperfield, the Magic Castle and many many more. What I love about what is happening to the genre, is magic shows have become more than just a series of tricks. A perfect example? My friend Cody Clark who is returning to Orlando on Thursday, Jan. 25, 2018 for his one-man show.
Cody Clark has quite possibly the most unique magic show on the planet. Through the use of skillful storytelling, his one-man show uniquely covers living with autism. Cody Clark: A Different Way of Thinking was my personal favorite show at the 2017 Orlando Fringe Festival. The show is introspective, clever, witty and naturally filled with magic. If you missed your chance to see Clark, he is returning to perform at the Opportunity, Community, Ability, Inc. (O.C.A.) Main Campus in Orlando. OCA is an Orlando, FL-based non-profit organization offering behavioral, social and vocational programs for those with autism and other special needs out of their own facilities at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church. Their long-term goal is to build an independent living community for adults with special needs in Central Florida
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children and $20 for a family of two adults and two children. They can be purchased at www.gooca.org or at the door. For more information about Cody, you can go to www.codyclarkmagic.com or any of Cody’s social media pages on Facebook or Instagram.
