Niagara and Toronto: Séance with Nicholas Wallace

Catch Séance with Nicholas Wallace in Niagara October 11-12 and Toronto October 17-19.


From The Seance:
Everyone loves a good ghost story. This is your chance to be part of one.

In this completely immersive experience, illusionist Nicholas Wallace invites you to join him in exploring the world of the Victorian spirit medium, in what is reliably being called “the first attempt to use an actual séance as part of a theatrical entertainment.”

Though the belief in ghosts and spirits is exceptionally old, one period in recent history stands out as something special. In the mid to late 1800’s, millions of people became convinced that they could communicate with the dead. For many people this belief exists to this day.

At each performance of Séance, one audience member is chosen to become The Medium. It is a different person every night. There is no way of knowing who will be chosen, what might happen, or who they might become.

You will explore the evolution of the Séance room.  You will take part in an experiment to contact the dead.  You will be scared.

Catching up with the Outerbridges

Congratulations to Ted and Marion Outerbridge for the addition of 4 more shows to their Smith Falls Theatre run this season!


They've been in the news a bit too.


From the July 20th article "Experience the magic of illusions at the Smith Falls Station Theatre" by Sofia Donato in Ottawa Life:

In one of Ted’s illusions, he vanishes from the stage, appearing instantaneously in the audience and completely surprising them. One evening, he so confounded an audience member by this illusion that “someone was upset because I was blocking their view of the show," Ted recalls. “They were yelling and hit me to get out of the way. Then they realized it was me.” Outerbridge wasn’t injured. “I was amused," he said.
