Have you ever seen someone sawn in half and live to tell about it afterwards? How about floating through the air with no visible strings attached. If not, here’s your chance!

Canada’s outstanding illusionist, John Kaplan, is bringing his acclaimed AbracaDAZZLE! show to Fernie on Wednesday, May 23, presented by the Fernie Elks Lodge and Teck.

Kaplan has opened for Jay Leno, done the half-time show for the Calgary Stampeders and provided the headline entertainment for the Men’s Brier. His AbracaDAZZLE! show dazzles the senses with amazing illusions and spectacular special effects, brought to life with electrifying music and dance in an entertainment event that promised to thrill the whole family.

The spectacle stars illusionist John Kaplan, who makes us believe in a world of fantasy through his original blend of magic and comedy with contemporary music, dance and special effects in this must-see theatrical experience.

It’s a magical review show for all ages. Incredible illusions are mixed with side-splitting audience participation in a 90-minute program of spellbinding fun that parents can share with their children and grandparents.

Kaplan has been making magic across Canada on behalf of community organizations for over 30 years. The performance in Fernie will help the local Elks Lodge who is raising funds for the Society for Community Living’s summer camps.

So come on out to the Fernie Community Centre on May 23 at 7 p.m. to see who from Fernie will get their head cut off or sawn in half! There will be special surprise draws, a silent auction as well as souvenirs and refreshments.

Advance tickets and family passes available at Giv’er Shirt Works, Back Country Meats and Sparwood Physiotherapy. For other ticket information call Eric at 250-423-4164 or visit www.abracadazzle.ca
