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.

Jeff Christensen's GoFundMe for The Bolivian Academy of Magic and Illusion

From Go Fund Me:
The Bolivian Academy of Magic and Illusion was founded in April 2009 on the initiative of Milton Flores Marques (Mago Byron) in the city of La Paz, Bolivia.  The institution is not for profit and promotes the love of magic performance in young people and children. 

Bolivia is not a wealthy country and this group could use your help to create some "real" magic.  Consider budding young magician Raquel who's family can't afford the $3 per class for her to attend and pay for the transportation to get to the school.  Raquel has made the commitment to walk 60 blocks each day that she has magic class. 

Check out the following short video and see what happening at The Bolivia Magic School.

The funds raised from this initiative will go a long well to help provide tuition for the students as well as much needed magic supplies.  Thank you for considering sponsoring the students of this school!
