3 fun things


2015 Magical Extravaganza

Science and magic join forces at Clayton State University for this show created by chemistry professor Jim Braun. In addition to teaching for the past 37 years, he’s been dabbling in magic since 1975. He combines his love of science and mystery in one show, the specific details of which he keeps, well, up his sleeve. Braun will perform with several other amateur magicians in the Arts and Sciences building, Room G132, on the Clayton State campus. It’s also expected to be Braun’s swan song; he plans to retire in May as the university’s longest-serving professor.

7 p.m. Jan. 16 and 17. Free. Clayton State Theatre, 2000 Clayton State Blvd., Morrow. 678-466-4000, clayton.edu.
