Warren native David Crone will appear at First United Methodist Church, 200 Market St., Warren, at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, as the featured attraction of a "Family Fun Night." Crone has been performing on stage for more than 40 years, the first one at First United Methodist. After discovering a magic trick in a cereal box when he was a child, Crone became enchanted with illusions and entertainment. He has honed his passion into an interactive stage show featuring a combination of ventriloquism, magic and comedy.
With a degree in electrical engineering and a minor in theater from the University of Pittsburgh, Crone joined the corporate workforce as a software engineer. He climbed the ranks into upper management at American Online, complete with corner desk and executive assistant, but his urge to have fun never escaped him. He made sure that work, for himself and his whole team, included laughter ever day.
Eventually Crone decided he should share his zest for fun with the rest of the world. Now he takes his act to corporations across the country, performing at special events, holiday parties and departmental meetings, where he specializes in giving audiences side-splitting entertainment - with a message, or just for fun.
