Service members should never feel alone.
Magicians on Mission is dedicated to boosting the morale and emotional health of American service members deployed overseas. We recruit the best magicians across North America to meaningfully connect, convey gratitude, and cultivate lasting relationships with our nation's heroes.
How it all began
Chris Rose has been entertaining audiences across the globe as a professional magician for over 30 years. You may have seen him on the CW network’s hit TV show “Penn & Teller: Fool Us”, as a featured performer at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood California, or at any number of corporate and private events all around the world.
In August 2017, he participated in his first performance tour sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE). He was part of a team of world-class magicians on a 16 day tour of SW Asia. He got to meet and entertain five thousand of our military heroes stationed there.
During each tour he witnessed a radical transformation. They went from tired, stressed, and isolated to energized, relaxed, and reconnected in just a few moments. We know that these connections are vital to the well-being of our service members. Our troops often go months without these civilian visits that connect them with home and help them unwind.
So, how do we get this to happen more often?
This question led Chris to create Magicians On Mission, a non-profit 501(ϲ)(3) organization. Its purpose is to not only create independently run magic tours but also be the preferred magic program partner for all organizations working to bring active-service entertainment to the military.
