Illusionist, storyteller Caleb Sigmon to perform at Asheboro library

Illusionist and storyteller Caleb Sigmon
ASHEBORO – Storyteller and illusionist Caleb Sigmon will materialize with an unexpected coda to “Build a Better World,” the library’s Summer Reading initiative, at 2 p.m. Tuesday, August 15, at the Asheboro Public Library.

His performance, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, is free and children of all ages and their families are invited.

Sigmon says he uses magic to share his story, his passion and his heart with others.

Born in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, he spent his childhood playing inside cardboard boxes, fighting dragons and playing Cowboys and Indians in his backyard. Now, he has made it his career.

He graduated from one of the top 10 national arts schools and immediately went to work forging his own way with a unique blend of magic, drama and storytelling. He performs over 150 shows annually in schools, libraries, churches and performing arts centers, and has appeared at venues ranging from the Virginia Beach Boardwalk to the Johnny Carson Theatre in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Sigmon was originally scheduled to perform on June 21, but was unavoidably detained elsewhere.

The library is located at 201 Worth Street. For further information, call 336-318-6804.
