Local magician Jesaja Class will be performing on Saturday, Nov. 25 as part of a fundraiser for the Atom Development Team.

Jesaja magic show sure to astonish Williams Lake audiences

Carnival and show to take place Saturday, Nov. 25 from 3 to 5 p.m.

Nemiah Valley magician Jesaja Class is set to stun audiences with his magic and illusions this Saturday, Nov. 25.

As part of a fundraiser for Atom Development Hockey, Jesaja will be performing some of his mind-bending feats at the Gibraltar Room starting at 4 p.m.

Before he takes to the stage, a family carnival and concession will be held beginning at 3 p.m., where families can take part in games and win prizes.

Jesaja, now 20, started performing magic when he was seven.

“It’s just bringing joy to people’s lives by doing something that they don’t see every day,” he told the Tribune.

“It’s an art form that is not as popular as some others and it’s something people really enjoy when they get the chance to see it, and something to think about and something they cannot explain.”

For people who have seen his shows before, Jesaja is bringing something new to the stage this year: manipulation magic.

A type of magic where visual acts using cards, balls, canes and fire are performed to music, Jesaja said he can sometimes take months to learn a new trick.

“Some things can be very quick and others can take months to perfect,” he said, adding that he practices something every day.

He also performs classic stage tricks and combines them with modern day street magic. His other skills include juggling, diabolo tricks and fire spinning.

Jesaja is completely self taught, saying he has never taken a course or used an instructor for his magic.

Instead, he learns from books or online.

The show was initially booked for the summer, but due to the wildfires had to be postponed.

The Atom Development Team is looking to fundraise for their hockey team, as well as travelling for other tournaments, according to Jesaja.

Both the carnival and the magic show are sure to delight both children and adults. The magic show is scheduled to take around 45 to 50 minutes, and Jesaja hopes there will be plenty for young and old to enjoy.

In the future, Jesaja has plenty of shows booked throughout the area, through Tatla Lake, Williams Lake and Riske Creek.

Tickets for the show on Saturday are available at Taylor Made Cakes, United Carpet Flooring and from any Atom Development Player. They cost $10 per child with a free adult ticket if accompanying children.
