The MAGIC of Cities - starring Joe M. Turner
The City of Dallas will celebrate Georgia Cities Week 2012 with a fantastic program of visual and psychological illusions presented by metro-Atlanta favorite and Dallas resident Joe M. Turner. Turner is a professional speaker, mentalist and sleight-of-hand magician who frequently performs at corporate events and prominent entertainment venues, often billed as the "Chief Impossibility Officer." The show will take place at 6pm on Tuesday, April 24th, and it is a free event. All seats are first come, first served. The Dallas Theater is located at 208 Main Street in Dallas, Georgia.
Lenay Walker, manager and artistic director of the Dallas Theater, announced the upcoming show with excitement. "We decided to do a magic show because each year the city produces an event in keeping with the theme of Georgia Municipal Association’s Georgia Cities Week," she said. "This year’s theme is 'The Magic of Cities.' Naturally, we thought of our local famed magician Joe M. Turner! Joe has performed here previously for his annual Midsummer Magic shows, we knew he would put on an outstanding show appropriate for the entire family. Joe’s combination of showmanship, talent and awe-inspiring magic made him the perfect choice to help us celebrate the magic of cities."
Joe M. Turner is a professional speaker and entertainer who has appeared frequently on the Dallas Theater stage. He has performed all over America and last year performed at the London Palladium.

The theater features state-of-the-art audio, lighting and staging, as well as 500-plus theater-style seating, including a balcony. The facility is designed for stage productions, movies, local civic events and as a public auditorium.
