Jim Gerrish performance at Holy Spirit Church Gym

Jim Gerrish performs magic in a show held at the former Holy Spirit Church in Orange. This took place in 1978, before the Wiz Kids was incorporated. The young man helping him is unknown, but the young woman is the sister of Stephen Ohocinski ( aka Magician Stephen Christopher). Robert E. Bross, card-carrying member (still!) of the Mecca Magic Club, found this newspaper article that seems to match up with the photo, so the date is May of 1978 and the show included many of the Washington Wizards who formed the first group of Wiz Kids.
