OXFORD – Ever wonder how susceptible you’d be to hypnosis and the power of suggestion? Find out this Saturday night, when the Oxford Community Youth Center hosts “Get Hypnotized,” a family-friendly show featuring Hypnotist Rich Wilson.
Wilson will pull volunteers on stage during the performance, which will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Oxford Academy High School Performing Arts Auditorium. Tickets are $5 at the door, with all proceeds going to support the Youth Center’s After School Program.
“Over 12 years ago the community wanted a structured, supervised setting for Middle School students after school,” said Youth Center Director Megan Kappauf.
Today, the Youth Center’s After School Program provides just that. Kids who might otherwise be going home to an empty house after school gather from 2:25 to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Instead of sitting home alone, these middle schoolers get homework help, a healthy snack and enjoy a variety of afternoon activities.
