Maxwell Blade performing his magic at the Greenwood Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 29. Blade’s career as a magician began in 1991, and on August 4, 1994, Blade debuted his large illusion show at the King Opera House in Van Buren, Arkansas. He dedicated that show to his terminally ill mother, who passed away of Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Throughout the years, Blade has performed his large production with his wife, Cathy, and children Courtney, Alexis, and Gabrielle. Crowds from all over the world continue to enjoy his zany and unique style of entertainment.

Pepper’s,” “Something,” “Get Back” and “Hey Jude,” Britain’s Finest will make you think and feel you are watching the real thing.
“Britain’s Finest sounds better than we did back in the old days, they reminded me of an incredible period in my life.” – Ringo Star, after seeing Britain’s Finest.
