Saturday Night at the Crown Plaza: Ron Fitzgerald’s Realm of Magic show & “FRIDAY THE 13th: THE FINAL CHAPTER” (1984).

Fitzgerald's Realm of Magic and Jason's Realm of MURDER

At 11:00PM in Ballroom 1 Gothic / Horror Illusionist and Actor Ron Fitzgerald assumes the role of camp counselor for this special Friday the 13th - "Summer Camp Talent Show Edition" of his famous dark Illusion show featuring his Gothic illusions, stage Magic, and Burlesque! The wicked Master Ron will thrill all of Flashback Weekend's Camp Crystal Lake campers, counselors and fans with scary stories, sinister Magic, and some sexy Burlesque, all in this special show performed by Master Ron Fitzgerald and his lovely, dark Mistresses of the Realm! After a trip to Ron’s Dark Realm of Magic, you’ll be in the mood for a screening of “FRIDAY THE 13th: THE FINAL CHAPTER” (1984).

Admission is free for all paid Flashback Weekend attendees. The Magic & Burlesque show should run roughly 30 minutes, with the movie following right after. The Magic & Burlesque show will start after the Outdoor showing of “FRIGHT NIGHT”, so when “FRIGHT NIGHT” ends, you can grab a few drinks and head to Ballroom 1 to enter the world of Fitzgerald’s Dark realm and Camp Crystal Lake.
