The East Kootenay Brain Injury Association (EKBIA) will be hosting STAGE FRiGHT, “The THRILLusion Show” as a pre-Halloween fundraiser on Sunday, September 29, at 4:00 pm. The show will be held at the Key City Theatre in Cranbrook.

Billed as 90 minutes of spine-tingling Halloween magic and mystery for the whole family, STAGE FRiGHT promises to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before! A haunted stage show with nerve-shattering illusions guaranteed to give you goosebumps.

The show is the brain-child of master illusionist John Kaplan, who stars in the production along with a cast of dancers and an assortment of “spooky” special guests. Reviewers have described the show as “a chilling array of nightmarish illusions that will leave you with many haunting memories” (The Peak, SFU) and “a little like David Copperfield possessed by Beetlejuice” (Capilano Courier).

John Kaplan has been touring Canada for nearly twenty years, and his family magic shows have earned hundreds of thousands of dollars for school and community groups all across the country. This year’s production on behalf of the EKBIA hopes to raise money towards supporting its programs in the region, including Fernie residents and their families that are affected by brain injury.

Last year, STAGe FRiGHT was sold-out throughout the lower mainland, attracting crowds of up to 1,000 per performance. Tickets may be purchased in advance and family passes are available. Additional information is available by calling the Key City Theatre at 250-426-5806.
