Family Entertainment- Family Friendly Hypnotist- Clarke Chapel

The days of clucking like a chicken are over.  Hypnotist Paul Ramsay's "Mind Games" show breaks the mold of stage hypnotism. Using interactive polling software and remote controls, audience members steer the course of the show by voting on what they want to see happen on stage.  "Mind Games" approaches stage hypnotism from a whole new angle.  It's interactive, original entertainment that transforms average students into a cast of characters before your very eyes! 

This program is sponsored by the office of student programs and leadership development.
