Nineteen-year-old magician Sterling Dietz, of Lynden, has achieved many triumphs in his young career but none as big as securing his own theatre – the Teatro de la Ciudad (Theatre of the City) in Cabo, Mexico.

“After almost two years of negotiations to finalize the details of working full-time in another country, it’s all been worth it,” Sterling said.  “To perform your art in your own theater is a dream come true.”

Jeff McBride of the Las Vegas Headliner called Sterling “a magnetic personality” who has “created a sensation in magic.”

“Sterling has all the skill and talent to rise to the top of the magic world,” McBride said.

Sterling burst onto the magic scene in 2006 at the age of 14, winning the prestigious Lance Burton award at the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas competing against much older and experienced magicians from around the world.

He had performed numerous benefit shows at the Blaine performing arts center (PAC).

“I think I was fortunate to grow up in Lynden, Washington, a small farming community near the Canadian border,” says Sterling. “From the very beginning, Lynden and the surrounding communities embraced me and my talent.”

Sterling will open his show in the newly renovated theatre in October.
