Paul DiStefano is a native to Telluride and spent his childhood honing his magic at the local coffee shops, hotels, restaurants and the stage to which he now returns.

Paul shares: “I grew up performing in the Sheridan Opera House and, no matter where I go in the world, I always look forward to returning to town. It is truly poetic to know that I will be performing my very own full evening show on the same stage where I learned how to do magic.”

Paul eventually ventured out of the box canyon to become a street performer, soon finding his way to the stage. From Los Angeles to New York, he honed his skills as an artist and showman. By the time Paul turned 25, he had performed all over North America and Europe. Ten years later he is pleased to present his very first full-length show of magic, comedy and dance.

“This show is a culmination of a lifetime of work in the performing arts. Of course, magic is my first and biggest love, but woven into this show is a collection of my passions – physical comedy, dance and theater. This is definitely not your typical magic show, but trust me, you still won’t know how it’s done.”

Sheridan Arts Foundation, more:

The Sheridan Arts Foundation was founded in 1991 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to preserve the historic Sheridan Opera House as an arts and cultural resource for the Telluride community, to bring quality arts and cultural events to Telluride and to provide local and national youth with access and exposure to the arts through education. The Sheridan Arts Foundation is sponsored in part by grants from the CCAASE, Colorado Creative Industries and an American Rescue Plan Act grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support general operating expenses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
