Show opener, performing in both English and Spanish, Diego “Mago Krypto” Zenteno has been performing magic for over a decade, having found his calling at the age of eight while watching television. “The first time I saw magic was on a TV special. The magician was doing an act with a piece of thread and I ran to my parents and said, ‘I want to be a magician,’” he said excitedly. “I found a universe of tricks and secrets. It took me twelve years before I was able to perform a one-hour show.” Zenteno’s hard work and dedication, he added, has led to a career which has garnered him five first-place trophies in national magic competitions in Mexico, work with international companies such as Nissan and Coca Cola, and helping found a magic school in Guadalajara. Mago shares, "One thing that’s beautiful about magic is that we can connect with people all around the world. It doesn’t matter the language or where you are,” he said, "It’s an amazing project and I’m excited to share my magic with you all.”
Actors include Alpine-based David DeLaO (Better Call Saul, The Marksman); Giselle Marie Muñoz, an Austin-based theater and film actor who co-founded the Austin Arthouse Film Festival; Austin-based playwright Raul Garza, who received the National Latino Playwriting Award for his full-length play Fantasmaville; and actor Mindy Escobar-Leanse, whose credits include Henson Studios/PBS’ Dinosaur Train Live! Buddy’s Big Adventure, the UK and Japan tour for off-Broadway show The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and Puppet Titus Andronicus.
