The Show...

The ART of Magic

Mitch Williams and the ART of Magic

is Mitch's dynamic and unforgettable one-man stage performance, an uplifting, mind-bending, musical, often hilarious, and consistently astounding journey through mystery and imagination that you're likely to remember for years to come.

The ART of Magic

In an unconventional shift of focus in magic from the traditional "how is it done?" to "why?", Mitch challenges his audiences to suspend their disbelief and takes them on a whirlwind journey of enchantment, adventure, and wonder into the world of the mysterious. By blending magic, mime, juggling, movement, fun audience involvement, and theatrical costuming and special effects with his dynamic stage persona, he creates a lasting impression that will leave you amazed, amused, and inspired.

The last two years have been packed houses. Make sure you get your tickets early before it's sold out!

The Venue:

Cherry Street Restaurant and Bar...

Cherry Street - Galesburg

has a long history as one of the most popular places to go for food, drinks and entertainment in Galesburg.

Prior to its current incarnation, the complex which now houses Cherry Street Restaurant, was previously home to a number of businesses, including Best Buy Furniture Store, Millie & Willy's Grocery, the Plaindealer Printing Co. and Martie's Pizza Restaurant.

In the mid 1980's the building was renovated, with the walls reverted to their original brick and the addition of a restored tin ceiling. It became a highly popular nitespot, under the name of the Cherry Street Brewing Company, until closing in 2009.

Recently Stan and Louella Devlin purchased the business, reopened it, and have breathed new life and fun into the venue, making it once again, one of the funnest dining and entertainment spots in west central Illinois.

When visiting Cherry Street, you also might come across the resident ghost, named Roxy. It's been alleged that Roxy was found dead in the bathtub of her 2nd floor apartment some time in the early 1900's. It's been said that she and her friends roam the building at all hours and some have even seen and heard proof of it, often in the form of fun little tricks she plays on people. If you pay attention, there might be times when you can feel her presence too. And if you get enough spirits in you, you might also believe not just in Roxy but in Magic too!!
