Eldon Roark - Bio
Magician Eldon Roark
A career in magic began at the age of ten when Eldon purchased a box of Cracker Jacks with a magic trick inside. He practiced the trick and showed it to his friends. They all thought Eldon was great! This motivated a trip to the public library. Eldon checked out his first magic book and a life of entertaining with magic began
There were no other magicians or magic shops close to Eldon, so he had to learn on his own. This wasn’t all bad though, it allowed him to develop his own style and methods, making his magic unique.
Eldon was honored by his peers when he was named Magician of the Year by the International Brotherhood of Magicians, Ring 239. He has also appeared in his own television special. The response by the viewing public was so great it was aired twice.
Eldon has performed for hundreds of corporations and thousands of fairs and festivals all over the United States. In 1999, Eldon joined Elsenpeter Productions, one of the fastest growing entertainment companies in the nation. Elsenpeter provides entertainment for schools, libraries, fairs, festivals and corporate events throughout the Midwest.
When he is not performing, Eldon lectures for magic fraternities, writes for magic publications and designs illusions and tricks for his company White Magic Manufacturing. White Magic provides props to magicians worldwide and is considered to be a premier builder.
When Eldon is asked about his life in magic his answer is, “I look at it this way, I only wasted the first ten years of my life”.
