Toronto: Win tickets to see "Champions of Magic"

Great news folks! I have been offered a family prize pack of four (4) tickets to give away to my readers, to attend the Champions of Magic at The Bluma Appel Theatre December 23, 2018 at 5:00 pm, Toronto, Canada. 
Champions Of Magic’s five world-class illusionists deliver an action-packed show to entertain the entire family featuring; incredible illusions with sports cars, an impossible escape from Houdini’s water torture cell, mind-blowing predictions that have to be seen to be believed, levitation from wonderous heights and a finale beyond explanation. The tour features original magic that can’t be seen anywhere else, in an explosive show that will delight audiences of all ages.

Five magicians make up this mind-bending magical troop, including:
  • Kayla Drescher, named the Next Great Magician by David Copperfield.
  • Alex McAleer has the ability to tap into his audience's’ minds and read their thoughts.
  • Fernando Velasco who has triumphed over it all, from straitjackets to water tanks and handcuffs to giant steel traps, he has faced some of the deadliest escape stunts ever performed.
  • Young and Strange have been featured on television shows around the globe thanks to their spectacular illusions and viral videos.

The cast will be in the lobby after the performance for photos at no cost.

  1. Yay free tickets. Sign me up! Fingers crossed.

  2. Night after night I've found that the effect that requires the most attention maintenance and attention is a manipulation and Dove act. The timing of a million little loads and details, combined with the timing of loading the live animals. Load them to soon and you've got a problem. Situations can occur when you ask for an introduction and then end up waiting. Sometimes it's almost immediate, sometimes it's too long. I once waited over 15 minutes to be introduced. I unloaded and reloaded the doves twice before he got around to introducing me. Plus there is the insxunexpe that can arise when dealing with live animals

    1. Thanks for the comment and the great insight! I hope you entered through the Rafflecopter form!
