CALUMET -- The Calumet Theatre and Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital will present a special live performance by comedian/ventriloquist Kevin Johnson at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 2. This performance is the finale of the Movie Magic Club.
Children 14 and under receive a free ticket with a paid adult ticket (limited to 250 free tickets). Adult prices are $15 and additional children’s tickets are $10.
Although you’ll never see Kevin Johnson’s mouth move, the real magic happens with the believability of his characters. You’ll fall in love with Matilda, laugh hysterically with Clyde and relate awkwardly with Harley. Throughout his show you’ll see and experience different variations of ventriloquism. From an audience participant becoming one of Kevin’s puppets to a magical drawing board coming to life, his show is a hit to every age. He has a unique ability to appeal to children, seniors and everyone in between.
Kevin is mostly recognized from his 2006 appearance on NBC’s prime time show "America’s Got Talent." More than 18 million viewers were amazed by his "Godzilla Theater," and Simon Cowell told Kevin, "America loves you."
In February 2007, Kevin achieved one of his lifelong goals when he appeared on "The Late Show" with David Letterman.
This event is sponsored by Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital .
