Widely acknowledged by his peers as one of the finest sleight-of-hand performers in the world, magician John Carney is best known for his numerous television appearances and his involvement in the exclusive Academy of Magical Arts at Hollywood’s Magic Castle. Recently, he developed a new one-man theatrical show, Carney Magic, that combines his illusions and humor with an original story. More than a typical magic show, this performance is recommended for ages eight and up, and promises to be a charming evening of wit and wonder on Saturday, Aug. 25, at Sebastiani Theatre, 476 First St. E., Sonoma. 7:30pm. $17–$25.
