Fill up on sword swallowing, fire eating, and other illusions at the Carnival of Wonders, an evening of fantastic performances led by career magicians Peter Monticup and Steve Pittella, assisted by Miss Electra and The Rubber Girl. Their big city stunts and sleights of hand will kick off PVCC’s 15th season of fine and performing arts. Curious fans can put the performance in context with The History of Sideshow, a public lecture earlier in the day that features vintage video, props, and other curios from the American carnival culture.

Saturday 9/14. $10-12, 7:30pm. Lecture at 1:30pm. Main Stage Theater, PVCC, 501 College Dr. 961-5376.
