The Thrillusionists: May 4th premier

Updated at 8am to add:
  • Suspicion confirmed, Sorcerers Safari alumnus Brad Bond is one of the three stars in The Thrillusionists!
  • From the April 27th article "Tricky Orillia teen set to make magical debut on CBC series" in Barrie Today:
    Brad Bond has been fascinated by trickery, sleight-of-hand and the mystery of illusions since he received a magic kit from his grandparents as a Christmas present when he was 10-years-old.

    But for him, this has never been child’s play. Bond, now 16, has approached the craft like a professional, painstakingly working on his technique, delivery and persona. That work has paid off.

    The Grade 10 Patrick Fogarty Catholic Secondary School student was one of three youths chosen – more than 1,000 auditioned from coast to coast – to host The Thrillusionists, a ground-breaking magic show set to make its debut next month.

    “It’s almost surreal,” Bond says of his new gig. “It’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was very young.”

I have a sneaking suspicion that a Sorcerers Safari alumnus is one of the Thrillusionists!

From The Thrillusionists Facebook page:
The Thrillusionists will PREMIERE on CBCKIDS.CA and on-demand MAY 4TH 2018!!! Stay tuned to this page for news update, live appearances and more! Thanks for watching and have a magical day! Bought to you by CBC Kids & 5'7 Films
