“Panama Jack made me shake my head in disbelief! As a skeptic: I was sure that I could catch what he was doing, I was sure that I could figure it out. But I never did! In the end he made a believer out of me. Magic is real, and it lives on stage with Panama Jack. Make sure you catch his performance because - Seeing is believing!”
Nancy Christopher Public Relations Chair Woodland Theatre Productions

“Our group, the Inland Northwest FreeThought Society, combined forces with another group for a "Panama Jack & Hat Tricks" Magic Show last spring. We had about 50 attendees who ranged from age 3 to 83, and everybody just loved it - and laughed all the way through. Can't recommend an entertainer and educator more highly -- what a wonderful and memorable Saturday morning that was! ”
Elizabeth Rose, INFS VP
