Charlottetown: The McSorley & Chung Magic Hour PLUS!

From McSorley & Chung:
August 1-4, 2019
Charlottetown, PEI

Award-winning magicians Grant McSorley and Derrick Chung are bringing their magic to the island. Their show Magic Hour was a sensation at Montreal’s 2016 Fringe festival, selling out five shows. But never willing to leave well enough alone, they’ve updated the show with new magic, and are joined on stage by the multi-talented Marc Trudel.

The show features McSorley & Chung, two eccentric characters who don’t always see eye to eye. But they realized long ago, that despite it all, they need each other. This time around, they’ve reluctantly taken on an intern (2-time Canadian magic champion Marc Trudel). And the results are as absurd as they are magical. Watch McSorley & Chung (and Marc) dazzle you with their offbeat original miracles and their modern takes on old classics, in a show that you just don’t want to miss.

The Outerbridges in PEI (and Toronto)

Check out the newspaper article, front page photo and two part radio segment with Marion and Ted Outerbridge!

(And if you're in Toronto on November 3rd be sure to to catch the Outerbridges' lecture.)

From the Journal Pioneer:
When Ted Outerbridge was seven years old, a man walked up to him as he was eating in a restaurant and pulled an egg out from behind his ear.

“He blew my mind,” laughed Ted, a native of Montreal.

That slight of hand had a profound impact on Ted’s life, eventually becoming his career as he invented himself as a magician and illusionist.

Joined by his co-star and wife Marion Outerbridge, Ted has been touring North America and Europe for nearly two decades.

The couple’s latest show, “Outerbridge: Clockwork Mysteries” is coming to Summerside’s Harbourfront Theatre on Oct. 22. Tickets are available at the box office and at

Summerside: OUTERBRIDGE – Clockwork Mysteries

From Harbourfront Theatre:

Clockwork Mysteries takes its audience on a bizarre and fascinating journey through time. With the help of an elaborate Victorian time machine, the performers and spectators travel back in time together. The audience is invited into a mysterious clock tower equipped with a variety of timekeeping devices. They become part of a race against time, experience time accelerating and slowing down, and participate in predicting the contents of a time capsule. Keeping their audience enthralled from the first astonishing illusion to the spectacular finale, the Outerbridges create an experience that far exceeds the expectations of every spectator.
