Adam Trent was originally slated to perform in this slot, but will not be available. Michaels will hit the stage instead.

If you already have tickets for Adam Trent, they are considered valid admission into the Jason Michaels show as the last concert in the 2016-17 season.

Michaels is an internationally award-winning magician who has entertained audiences in 12 countries around the world.

Not your typical "rabbit from a hat" magician, Michaels describes his show as "interactive and fun, with incredible true stories that compliment my magic routines. Audience members of all ages can expect to be amazed and inspired to seek the magic in life."

Diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome at age 13, Michaels found his uncontrollable tics and twitches vanished like a magic trick when he performed magic. In his show, Michaels uses the escape from a straitjacket to demonstrate the power of overcoming obstacles, like the tics of his Tourette's Syndrome, that feel like impossible obstacles. In addition to the straitjacket escape, Michaels plans on bringing audience members on to the stage to participate in other incredible feats.
