Illusions and Life Changers: Magician Jim Munroe Visits Parkside


This upcoming Wednesday March 4 UW-Parkside’s Cru will be hosting illusionist Jim Munroe at the campus cinema. The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will be about two hours long, although many will want to stay afterwards. The show is entitled “The Maze” and promises to be a great time for all.

Jim Munroe has been touring campuses across the nation for about six years now but this will be the first time he’s visiting our campus. Cru is absolutely delighted to be welcoming him. He has previously been offered opportunities to have his own show in Vegas, but declined in order to continue sharing his talents and his story of self-discovery with young students.

The show that he will be putting on for the campus on Wednesday will be a two-part performance. The first hour will be the illusion show, promising to blow minds and impress even the skeptical. There will then be a short intermission where all who feel uncomfortable in a religious setting are welcomed to leave, no strings attached. After this, Munroe will speak to the crowd about his life and faith. This event is open and free to the public and all are welcome. The Cru organization would like to welcome anyone who is interested to come and enjoy the magic of Jim Munroe, no religious affiliation required.

After the discussion and illusion show, the Blood Center of Wisconsin will be there as well, registering those who are interested in becoming bone marrow donors. The Blood Center will be waving the usual $100 fee that goes along with registration to all students who choose to register after this event. Bone marrow transplantation has saved many lives over the years and is a known treatment for things such as cancers as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma and many other diseases that damage bone marrow. This is a great way to give back to community.

Cru is a Christian community organization at Parkside. They meet on Tuesday evenings in Molinaro, Room 107 at 8 p.m. They strive to connect students to the Gospel through different speakers, such as Munroe, and spend time learning what it means to be a Christian.
