*This event is FREE for Second Saturday.
Michael Howell is an Award-Winning Illusionist that puts smiles on faces everywhere he “appears”. Michael’s performances bring out the child in everyone. In addition to his Magic, Michael has dozens of animals that he has rescued, and has founded a non-profit organization called the Rose Ranch Animal Rescue. Michael often uses these animals in his performances, where proceeds go to the costs of their care.
Michael was just two years old when he began performing. His first role was in an Arizona Rose Theatre Company production of “Angels In The Wings”, and he has been preforming ever since. Michael has appeared in various theatrical productions, such as “Robin Hood The Musical”, “Tombstone The Musical” and “River Of Dreams”, among many others. He has also appeared in two full-length movies; “Long Road To Hollywood” and “Triple Threat”. He is an all-around performer as a singer, dancer, actor and juggler.
As a small child, Michael watched Magician Mark Bond perform in an Arizona Rose Theatre Co. production, and was both amazed and inspired. He began performing smaller magic tricks and and worked on developing his skills. At age 15, he entered his first magic contest, and placed second in, the 2006 Arizona State Magician Of The Year Competition. He has also performed in “Stars Of Magic”, “It’s Magic”, “Illusions And Dreams”, “Stunts And Illuisons”, as well as at the Marana Founder’s Day Celeration, Southern Arizona Arts Cultural Alliance presentations, the Phoenix Jewish Community Center, and has been the opening act for many performances such as “Big Band Sounds” and for his sister and local Recording Artist, Erin Jean.
