DMI and Dickens Theatre Host Magic Mondays


Downtown Milford Inc. (DMI) will be hosting a unique event throughout the months of January February and March. Milford’s Magic Mondays will debut on January 16 at the Milford Senior Center and feature world-renowned magicians for the entertainment of adults and children of all ages.

President of DMI, Irv Ambrose, first developed the idea when he saw his first performance of Rich Bloch at the Dickens Parlour Theatre in Millville, Delaware. Rich has entertained audiences across the globe including Las Vegas, Atlantic City and Washington D.C. His accolades include two-time recipient of the Blackstone Award from the International Platform Association, six-time nominee of Stage Magician of the Year award and 2006 Fellowship recipient at Hollywood’s Magic Castle. Rich and his wife Sue host the Dickens Parlour Theatre in Millville and welcome magicians from around the world.

“We saw our first show at the Dickens Theatre last New Years Eve and we were astounded,” commented Mr. Ambrose. “It is not the usual ‘pull a rabbit out of a hat’ tricks, the show is a very high class performance. Once you see it you will want to see it again.”
Since that first performance, Irv and his wife Marilyn have been back to see the show 15 times in just 11 months.

On the Mondays of January 16, February 13 and March 12th Rich Bloch will bring his talent and experience to the Milford stage along with magicians Will Fern and John Stetson. Mr. Fern has 20 years of performing experience performing corporate events for Verizon, Johnson & Johnson and Goldman Sachs. Over the past 30 years Mr. Stetson has performed for world diplomats including Presidents Carter and Bush, the King of Sweden and The Royal Family of Monaco.

With over 100 years of combined performing experience these magicians will deliver an evening of unbelievable magic and comedy for the whole family. The doors open each Monday at 6:30 p.m. with a cash bar and mingling. Shows start at 7:00 p.m. promptly. Following the show, at 8:00 p.m. there will be refreshments and desserts for purchase from Dolce. While you enjoy your desserts, the magician will mingle and do table side magic for your continued amazement. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children (12 and under). They are available at the Milford Senior Center and the Downtown Milford, Inc. office or by calling 302-839-1180.
