Back by popular demand, Wayne Hoffman illusionist and mentalist, will present   Mind Candy, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 11, in Penn State York's Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (Pullo Center). Hoffman packed the 1,000-seat performing arts center last season. This is a free show but due to overwhelming demand, admission will be with ticket only. Free tickets will be available at the doors of the Pullo Center beginning at 5 p.m. the night of the show on a first-come, first-served basis.

Since 1994, Hoffman has performed Mind Candy for hundreds of thousands of people across the United States. His name is now synonymous with professional mystery entertainment. The show includes some of Hoffman’s signature effects such as his infamous "soda can effect" and his preshow predictions of his audiences actions. During all of the shows, Hoffman constantly has people participate both individually and as a group.

In 2007 he appeared on NBC's television show "Phenomenon," where he performed for millions of viewers on live television. He also appeared on various other television networks including TLC and the Discovery Channel.

Hoffman grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania and was raised by his single mother. At age 7, Hoffman received a magic set for Christmas and since then he has never looked back. By 18, Hoffman was touring the United States performing his show "Mind Candy." He continues to be ranked one of the top entertainers in his field and was ranked one of the top 10 mentalists in the world.  

Hoffman's appearance is part of the Penn State York Cultural and Performing Artists Series sponsored by the campus and the York Newspaper Company.
