Abstract (Document Summary)

The magicians practice different kinds of magic. For instance, Brewer-based Danny Baker performs mainly for children. Doc Wilson, aka Paul Szauter, lives in Bar Harbor and works as both a sideshow performer and an escape artist. St.Albans' Wes Booth excels at card tricks and doves and white rabbits.

Szauter, specializes in nontraditional magic - in the bizarre and the strange. When he's in his Doc Wilson persona, the Bar Harbor magician operates Dr. [Mark Wilson]'s Memory Elixir, an old-timey medicine show in which he performs everything from astounding feats of conjuration to daring escape acts to his personal favorite, the "ladder of swords."
