Chilliwack: Shawn Farquhar’s Cabaret of Wonders XI

From the Chilliwack Cultural Centre:

March 16, 2018

Settle in for a night of wonder and delight as Shawn Farquhar, the only magician to fool Penn and Teller twice, hosts his eleventh Cabaret of Wonders. This intimate show brings a brilliant collection of magicians to the stage, from world-renowned performers to local talent. This casual cabaret setting is perfect way to experience innovative acts, illusions, and more in a fantastical display of never-before-seen works and magical standards! Whether you’re a magic enthusiast or have dreams of bringing your own illusions to stage, the Cabaret of Wonders is a chance to see magic behind the scenes – and get up close and personal with the most talented performers from British Columbia and beyond.

Shawn Farquhar won’t be the only one demonstrating his unbelievable skills, as The Cabaret of Wonders will also be welcoming the charming James Alan, the delightful John Kaplan, and the enigmatic Henry Tom to share the stage.

Master of sleight of hand and illusions, Toronto’s James Alan will prove that the experience of magic is ideal for creating memories which last a lifetime. His goal is to prove that magic isn’t just for kids, and has created performances that are “thought-provoking, funny, astonishing and thoroughly entertaining.” He has been featured on Summerworks Performance Festival and The Hamilton Fringe Festival, and for the last two years, he has been hosting Magic Tonight.

John Kaplan, also known as the fundraising magician, has been touring Canada for three decades, performing his unique brand of family-friendly magic. His focus on fundraising through his magic shows has led to international recognition. He has shared the stage as an opening act for Jay Leno, the Boomtown Rats, and starred in the Opening Ceremonies for the Labatt National Men’s Curling Briar.

Also joining them is international award-winning Henry Tom, who is a Canadian Association of Magicians’ Close Up Magic Champion and a Vancouver Magic Circle’s Stage Magic Champion. Running a dental practice, Tom has incorporated magic into his dentistry, but has also brought his dentistry into his magic, making for a uniquely charming act!

Shawn Farquhar in the Agassiz Harrison Observer

From the Agassiz Harrison Observer:
Full of confusion and illusion, Shawn Farquhar’s Cabaret of Wonders is back for its last installment of the season — and with an international roster of magicians, it might be the most phenomenal performance yet! On Apr. 21 Shawn Farquhar will once again be perplexing audiences at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, this time with a little help from England and Germany.

Described by Farquhar as “one of the finest magicians in the world,” Axel Hecklau is making the trek from Berlin, Germany to Chilliwack, and he’s bringing his magic along with him. With over 30 years of experience perfecting his skills and performances in nearly 50 cities across the globe, Hecklau has built a reputation as one of the top magicians, not only in Germany but world-wide.

Chilliwack: Shawn Farquhar's "Cabaret of Wonders"

From the Cabaret of Wonders Facebook page:
If you have yet to buy your ticket for this Friday's Cabaret of Wonders (November 20th) you are running out of time. We have less than a dozen tickets available... did I mention we are doing TWO shows instead of one this time! Yes that means we are so popular we added another show and the they are both almost SOLD OUT. So exciting. My guests this month are Master Payne from Seattle and Michael Dardant from New Orleans. It's going to be epic.

Read what the Chilliwack Times had to say about The Cabaret of Wonders:
Shawn Farquhar’s reputation as one of the world’s leading magicians has led him on a global journey of wonder—from his home in Maple Ridge to his current month-long tour of Malaysia; sailing the seas performing on the world’s best luxury cruise liners—and even performing in Bermuda on a formal request by British royalty.

And the only magician in history to have won first place for both Stage and Sleight of Hand at the World Championship of Magic is making The Chilliwack Cultural Centre home for his upcoming series of fantastic shows—Shawn Farquhar’s Cabaret of Wonders! Beginning on Oct. 30, The Cabaret of Wonders will feature four shows throughout The Centre’s 2015/16 presentation season, bringing those for which magic provides their passion, profession, and personality together in celebration and demonstration of this fascinating and entertaining art form.

An unparalleled display of magic performance and entertainment, The Cabaret of Wonders will not only feature Shawn Farquhar’s skills in the intimate setting of The Centre’s Rotary Hall Studio Theatre, but will provide a platform for emerging and aspiring magicians to hone their skills in front of a live audience. Not only will the cabaret format of these shows provide an up-close-and-personal show, with performer and audience being separated only by the wonder being conjured in the room, but also an informal atmosphere that invites you to grab a drink, sit back, and enjoy the unmatched experience of watching magic unfold right before your eyes.
