Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Ringmaster of Zing, Zang, Zoom headlines the event

Martinez, CA – January 19, 2010 – California Magic Dinner Theatre announced today that this month marks the 600th dinner show since it's grand opening more than six years ago, and to headline the special event is Alex Ramon, the ringmaster of Zing, Zang, Zoom by Ringling Bros & Barnum and Bailey Circus. After more than two years on the road, he's returned home, back to his magic roots.

“California Magic Dinner Theatre is one of my favorite places to perform, and I've been all over the world,” said Ramon.

For more than ten years, club owner Gerry Griffin has watched Ramon evolve into the world-class performer he is today. Back when California Magic Dinner Theatre was just a retail store, Ramon and his mother would frequent for new tricks and advice.

“This young man is the real deal,” said Griffin. “It's such a pleasure to have him headline such an important weekend in our theater's history – he represents what hard work, focus and staying true to a dream can do for a person. He is everything a great entertainer should be.”

Being able to continue to bring such wonderful performers to the San Francisco Bay Area during these tough economic times means a lot to Griffin.

“The theater was always my dream, and right after we opened for business, the economy took a nose dive,” he said. “We are very proud to have weathered the troubling times, and we are thankful for having such a loyal fan base.”

As part of the celebration, Griffin and his team have created a new website for the theater that will feature a blog roll of articles by local magicians, photographs and videos.

“Our new website has a new look and feel that will put the spark of magic right at their fingertips.”

The 600th dinner show featuring Ramon and The Flying Calamari Brothers is Friday, January 28th and Saturday, January 29th. For more information on California Magic Dinner Theatre and ticket sales, check out www.calmagic.com or call 925-374-0056. #####
