WESTERN SPRINGS – The Theatre of Western Springs will present “Dennis Watkins, Third Generation Magician and Mentalist” at 8 p.m. Nov. 15.

The show is a fundraiser and part of TWS’s popular Performance Series for the public, a news release stated.

Based in Chicago, Watkins’ critically acclaimed one-man-show, “The Magic Parlour,” runs five times weekly at Chicago’s Palmer House Hotel, where he’s been showcased for eight years. His work has been seen on FOX, WGN, ABC, CBS and A&E.

In 2017, Watkins was a featured performer on the hit show “Penn & Teller: Fool Us.”

“Dennis is charming, skillful and an enigmatic performer,” Ann Marie Hultgren, co-chairman of the Performance Series, stated in the release. “I am thrilled we are able to bring him to the western suburbs. TWS is the perfect venue for his magic.”

Tickets cost $30, $25 for TWS subscribers. They are available by calling the box office at 708-246-3380 or visiting www.theatreofwesternsprings.com.
