The first day of Family Weekend 2017 will close with comedian and magician Michael Kent at 8:00 p.m., Friday, September 22nd, at the Peoples Bank Theatre in downtown Marietta.
A resident of Columbus, Ohio, Kent gives the ancient art of magic a facelift with an irreverent and often satirical comedic spin. He spent his younger years learning magic to make friends and meet girls. After graduating from college, it became his job. Kent studied Communication, Linguistics and Theater at The Ohio State University and has studied at the world-famous Second City comedy theater in Chicago.
