Internationally renowned magician, Bradley Fields, captivates the audience with his famous magic illusions, and then teaches the secrets behind some startling math tricks. Recognized as one of the preeminent shows for young people, MatheMagic! features world-class magic, comedy, and theatre. Amidst oohs, aahs, and laughter, Bradley Fields challenges, provokes, and elicits critical thinking.  Kids (unknowingly!) practice classroom skills and problem-solving. MatheMagic! explores ancient civilizations. We meet Zeno, Imhotep, Pythagoras, and the first magicians (whose secret was really math!). Bradley Fields connects with young people of different ages, abilities and learning styles. Kids leave the theater with a new fascination for the history, the power and the beauty of the language of math.
