Rogue The Magician
Rogue the Magician

Rogue the Magician got his start in magic at the age of six and has been performing, teaching, and mentoring for the last 30 years. He performed on America’s Got Talent in 2014 (his true claim to fame)—as well as countless other news programs, newspapers, magazines, online media, TV shows—and was featured in the short documentaries The Magic Man and Misdirection. Rogue is a full-time performer and has traveled throughout the globe, fulfilling his passion, spreading his love of magic, and inspiring others to follow in his footsteps.

Tammy Hall 

Storyteller Tammy Hall is known throughout Brooklyn for her extensive knowledge of world folklore. Born in Clarksville, Tennessee, she grew up listening to wondrous Southern tales at the foot of her father. She has since expanded her repertoire to include hundreds of tales from all over the globe, mesmerizing audiences with a wide range of storytelling techniques, including call-and-response; the use of percussive instruments, costumes, and other props; and the simple power of the human voice.

Greg Butauski 

Greg Butauski is a master pumpkin carver who has been carving professionally for 15 years. He carves over 50 pumpkins every October and has been invited to appear on Food Network’s Halloween Wars in 2021. He began his food art career working in ice sculpture and has won the World Ice Art Championships, is a three-time US national champion, and was US team captain at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and Vancouver. He also specializes in sand carving and food art mediums including cheese, toast and bread, candy, fruits, and vegetables.
