Magic in the Mountains - The Jason Bishop Show
Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 7:00 PM (MDT)
Jason Bishop, America's Hottest illusionist brings his show to Keystone, Colorado to benefit CASA of the Continental Divide.
Jason Bishop might have a person passing through his body one moment or make goldfish appear from nowhere the next. Bishop is an international award-winning illusionist who was the youngest person to win the Magician’s Alliance of Eastern States Stage Award and one of the youngest people to compete in the Society of American Magicians World-Class competition. Bishop’s interest in magic ran throughout his youth, truly taking shape in his mid-teens. In college Jason studied theatre and then went on the road performing at resorts and amusement parks, anywhere he could find an audience, including the street. As audiences enjoyed the show more and more he altered his magic to became larger and more impressive.
The Jason Bishop Show now tours the most dynamic illusion and magic show in the US. The show currently features exclusive large illusions, award winning sleight of hand and “close-up” magic that is captured live and projected onto LCD screens for the audience to have a clear view of every detail. Bishop is currently the only illusionist in the U.S. to tour with the rare Plasma illusion and Op-Art. His performance abilities have led him from New Mexico to Maine and Florida to New York, as well as every state in-between.

A former foster child, Jason has offered his services to CASA of the Continental Divide for this Benefit Show. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of the Continental Divide, is a volunteer-powered nonprofit. A network of committed people from all walks of life who believe society has a fundamental obligation to these children. We are trained volunteers, appointed by judges to advocate for each child - to make sure thier basic rights and essential needs don't get overlooked or ignored by the system. A CASA volunteer can dramatically cut the amount of time a child spends in foster care, and help each child find a safe, loving permanent home.
More information about casa is available at our website mtncasa.org
When & Where
CASA of the Continental Divide
CASA of the Continental Divide was founded to train volunteers as Court Appointed Special Advocates for children who are victims of abuse and neglect. Each year CASA of the Continental Divide recruits and screens volunteer advocates, then provides comprehensive training programs to educate the volunteers about child abuse and neglect. They learn about the roles of the Department of Human Services, the judicial system, and many of the community resources available to children and families involved in these cases. The volunteers continue their training through regular in-services that provide additional information and support.
The volunteers, or CASAs, appointed by the Court, generally work on one case at a time. They provide factual, unbiased information to the Court about the child's situation, enabling the Court to make more informed decisions in the best interest of the child.
CASA of the Continental Divide serves Clear Creek, Eagle, Lake and Summit counties in Colorado's 5th Judicial District. This includes the towns of Avon, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Dillon, Downieville, Eagle, Edwards, Frisco, Georgetown, Gypsum, Idaho Springs, Keystone, Leadville, Minturn, Silver Plume and a portion of Evergreen.
The National CASA Association was formed in 1977. There are over 954 programs in the nation; seventeen programs are currently operating in the state of Colorado. CASA of the Continental Divide was accepted for membership in the National CASA Association in August of 1998. 501(c)(3) designation was received from the Internal Revenue Service in 1999.
