MARION CENTER — Come one, come all! On Jan. 24, Marion Center High School will host master hypnotist Anderson Hickok.

The show will be held at 7 p.m. in the Keith R. Bloom Auditorium. All ages are welcome and tickets can be purchased at the door for $5 per person.

Students have the option of buying tickets in advance by turning in a reservation form to Gena Anthony. If writing a check, it can be made payable to the Marion Center Junior Class. 

Volunteers will be chosen from the audience. This is the show for you if you’ve ever wanted the chance to be hypnotized. Hickok can make you feel any emotion he chooses and do anything he desires. He can make volunteers cry as if they’d just seen the saddest movie of their life, or make them an enthusiastic musician, mastering the air-guitar.

Hickok’s show has been described as exciting, fun and hilarious; he has even performed in the New Orleans Riverboat shows.  This event will help to raise money for the Marion Center junior class to offset the cost of prom.
