Chalet Magic Show



A George Kimery built Zig Zag Girl with my first wife, Debra, and Kelly Hill.
1978, Tombstone Junction at Cumberland Falls, Kentucky.

I worked for George Kimery of Chalet Magic in Kentucky for a while as an unskilled assistant at building magic props. I was a big fan of George’s work. My first stage show was like a Chalet Magic “magic kit.”

I had his Zig Zag, Metamorphosis Packing Crate, Radio-controlled Balloon to Dove table and Infrared activated Gloves to Dove table. The electronics to these last two were built by Dick Christian. I also had George’s Doves to Rabbit blammo-style box.

Everything in the act was color coordinated with George’s signature blue, black and silver designs.

Kelly Hill was a wonderful actor and juggler who worked with me in a theater company called the Road Co. out of Johnson City, Tennessee before I sold this magic show to Rick Stephens for Tombstone Junction.

Here is some video from the show:

About Pop Haydn

I am not originally from the 21st Century myself, but have been stuck here by accident--not entirely my fault--with a bunch of other maroons from another very different time and place... Nevertheless, my companions and I love it here and just like everyone else we are just trying to get by in this exciting and progressive era. With a variety show of steampunk-oriented magic, comedy and music, Pop's company entertains and sells a few bottles of Amazing Miracle Oil, Wonder Elixer, or Magnetized Water.
