Do You Believe In Magic?

Last Sunday, November 7th was a truly Magical Evening at Teatro ZinZanni as nearly 300 people attended the Second Annual Gala Benefit for the ZinZanni Institute for Circus Arts (ZICA). Board members, parents and camper, vendors, Golden Tassel Club members, friends and family joined the cast of Hearts on Fire as the special evening successfully raised funds for ZICA. Former TZ chef/comedian Kevin Joyce was the ultimate “zingmaster” of ceremonies, guiding us through an incredible evening of song, circus, feasting and merriment. Special guest star blues goddess Duffy Bishop and her husband guitarist Chris Carlson peeled back the tent top with her renditions of “Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom” and “I Put a Spell on You.”  Six foot two inch Manuela Horn reprised her role as Gretchen the Yodeling Dominatrix as she assisted El Vez, the Mexican Elvis, with his very special fund-raising effort (if you were there, you’d know exactly what happened ;-).  Campers Jamal Bakari, Devin Barrett, Sam David, Max Peterson and Ryland Smith stole the show with a high-energy display of some of the artistry and skill they’ve acquired at Camp ZinZanni’s summer sessions.  Photos by Korum Bischoff.

  1. This is a little late; but, every time I see the name of the chef Earl Carlson, I get an urge to mention someone I washed dishes for three days the summer of ’71 at Many Glacier Hotel in Glacier National Park. This was another chef “Eri de Carison” alias Earl Carlson. Sort of a fop who’d flopped; not to mention a tyrant in the kitchen there. “Takes one to know one; no hit backs” etc.

      An uncanny similarity of name, but from what he tells us, Chef Erik Carlson was not at the Many Glacier National Park.
