Performer's biographies:

Magician Richard Cannon, 81, has been performing magic for 71 years, having been introduced to the art while growing up in Tremonton. The Loftus Magic Shop in Salt Lake City provided early inspiration on family outings to the big city. Cannon obtained a BS in Chemistry from USU then an MS, also in Chemistry, from the University of Idaho before returning to Cache Valley to begin a 35 year career with Thiokol and raise his son and two daughters. Retiring in 1997, he remains active in the community as a volunteer at Logan Regional Hospital, as an usher at the Lyric and Ellen Eccles Theaters, and as a clarinetist in the Cache Community Band. He is also an active member of Logan's Historic Harmony Masonic Lodge and served as a Missionary at the LDS Employment Resource Service Center. Cannon has three grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

Deceptionist Richard Hatch holds two graduate degrees in Physics from Yale University, but finds it easier apparently to violate the laws of nature than to discover them. A childhood interest in magic became a lifelong obsession after he met and was encouraged by the German magician Fredo Raxon in 1970. A full time professional “deceptionist” since 1983, Richard moved with his wife, violinist Rosemary Kimura, to Houston, Texas in 1985, shortly after winning first place in the annual New England Close Up Magic Competition in Worcester, Massachusetts. For several years he honed his craft entertaining the guests as one of the house magicians at Houston's Magic Island Nightclub before devoting himself exclusively to private and corporate work, traveling internationally on behalf of his clients. Richard and his wife Rosemary moved to Cache Valley in October 2010 and opened the Hatch Academy of Magic & Music (   in Logan's historic 1878 Thatcher-Young Mansion in January 2011. Richard serves on the board of the Sunshine Terrace Foundation. His first book, Taro-san the Fisherman and the Weeping Willow Tree, published in December, has just been nominated for a Utah Book Award in the children's literature category. For more information on Richard, check out his website:
