Paul DraperPerformance is free and open to the public

Northeastern Junior College invites the public to enjoy a special appearance by internationally recognized performer, Paul Draper. He is an anthropologist, magician and "mind reader”. He will make one appearance on campus on Tuesday, November 2nd at 7 p.m.  This is a free show, sponsored by the college’s Associated Student Government. It takes place in the Dorothy Corsberg Theatre in E.S. French Hall on campus.

Paul Draper has appeared with David Copperfield, Lance Burton, and Teller as an expert on the History Channel. He has performed for HBO Comedy Fest at Caesar's Palace, on Criss Angel’s Mindfreak on A&E, and on documentaries accompanying Steven Spielberg's Poltergeist.

In addition to his campus performances, corporate shows and lectures, Paul Draper is frequently called upon as an expert in fields ranging from magical history to human consciousness.

As an anthropologist and member of the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness, Paul Draper pursues studies with Native American ghost dancers, South American cannibals, and spiritualists.

"I travel the world in search of magic and mysteries to bring you my show ‘Mysteries of the Mind,’" says Draper.

Corporations and universities from all over the United States have hired him to not only entertain students, but also to help them build stronger teams, understand their clients better, and learn some of the secrets of the ancients.

“I'm able to achieve immediate measurable results in just 45-minutes. Many of my clients have claimed that my full day workshops have changed their lives!” Draper said. “Sounds impossible, I know. But that’s what the show is about.”
