Reza, claimed by critics to be “one of the nation’s top illusionists,” will take stage on Thursday, Nov. 12, at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. in the Nebraskan Student Union Ponderosa Room.

Some of his illusions include an assistant vanishing in thin air, a $100 bill trick, reading the thoughts of audience members, a split-second appearance of a motorcycle, an assistant being sliced into four pieces and Reza passing through 300 pounds of steel.

Reza has been featured on television and radio shows broadcasted in 31 countries, and his tours have sold out theaters across the country.

He began his career at the age of 14 by performing in resorts and for large corporations. On his 15th birthday, Reza left his hometown of Brookings, S.D., for a six-week show in Branson, Mo., performing 18 shows each week. Today, Reza is considered one of the fastest rising stars in the industry.
