RALEIGH, N.C., August 28, 2014 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, is proud to welcome world renowned illusionist Blake Vogt to campus for an exclusive magic show on Thursday, September 4 in Kenan Auditorium, located at 15 East Peace Street. Vogt, who is one of the top illusionists in the world, has created magic for David Copperfield, David Blaine, Dynamo, and many other top magicians all over the world.

The show will be held from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and is free to students, faculty, and staff. Season tickets, along with student/faculty/staff ID cards, are required for entrance. The event is not open to the public.

“We’re excited to bring in top talent here at the University,” said Julie Ricciardi, Vice President for Engagement at William Peace University. “Blake is one of the world’s top illusionists, and is sure to put on a great show for the WPU community.”

“We believe in providing our students and community with great entertainment and performances,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., President of William Peace University. “This show should be another great event here on campus.”

“I can’t wait to see what he [Vogt] does on stage,” said Sarah Urman, William Peace University ’17. “I’ve heard about his [Vogt’s] acts before. I can’t believe he’s coming to campus.”
