Fergus: Bringing magic to the Fergus Grand Theatre

From the January 5th, 2018 article "Ryan Joyce aims to bring world class magicians to Fergus" by Jaime Myslik in the Wellington Advertiser:
“I’m trying to find ways to stay more locally bound and still do what I love,” he said. “I think we might have found a unique way to do both.”

The first project he’s working on is called Magician’s Masterclass, which is an educational show for magicians hosted by a guest magic legend and will be filmed at the Fergus Grand Theatre.

The goal is to “see how they learn and teach and explore magic, all on camera,” Joyce said.

The first episode was released in December with host Michael Close, a magic consultant for Penn & Teller: Fool Us.

From Fergus Filming:
I asked Michael (Close) to join us to film an exciting new project for the magic community that teaches some of magic’s most well-gaurded secrets.  The project is turning out better than I expected and there is interested to bring other world-famous magicians and variety artists right here to our community.

While filming, it became very clear the opportunity that lay ahead.  I am gearing up to bring some of the world’s greatest magicians, variety artists and visual entertainers right here to Fergus Grand Theatre and film shows for distribution.

These performances will be free* and we need to fill all 255 seats with an enthusiastic live studio audience.  Sorry, I can’t mention too many juicy details yet.  You’ll be the first to know by signing up for updates below!  Don’t worry, I don’t have time to spam you– kinda busy working to make this happen (plus travelling like crazy for my job)

Ryan Joyce helped raise over $11,000 for the Groves Memorial Hospital Foundation

Congratulations Ryan, on receiving the Melvin Jones Fellow award, and of course for all of your fabulous fundraising work!


From Ryan Joyce's blog post "A week of surprises":
This week I’m home and had a wonderful visit with my friends, The Fergus Lions Club.  I was looking forward to sharing my own news* but my excitement was to learn how much we raised for the hospital.  I’m pleased to announce we contributed over $11,000+ to Groves Memorial Hospital Foundation!!

A million thanks to Lion Margaret Murray for her own wizardry!  We sold out one show and 80% the second.  I’m so proud to be apart.  Thank you all.

I couldn’t be happier to live in a community filled with such much to give. 

Ms Murray had another surprise!  While normal Lions Club business agenda was taking place an award was announced and I was looking around the room to see who it could be.  Never in a million years did I ever consider it was directed to me.  I’m still speechless.

This is the Melvin Jones Fellow.

As a Melvin Jones Fellow, your name has been added to our listing of all individuals in the program.  During your next visit to International Headquaters, I invite you to visit the LCIF Room to see your name on this extensive list.

Fergus: Ryan Joyce

For those of you who like to plan ahead ...

From Ryan's website:
October 14, 2017

This is a happy day for me.  Thanks to my long-time friends, the Fergus Lions Club, I’m thrilled to announce we’ve added a show right here in Fergus (my stomping grounds!)  I’m kinda excited about it tbh.  It’s been many years since I’ve performed in my hometown!  But there is extra level of pride because I’m donating the show and the Lions are hitting the pavement and all the funds raised from the show are being donated to our future new community hospital!!!  (Proceeds donated specifically to The Groves Memorial Hospital Foundation.)

Fighting Fire with Smoke and Mirrors

From the Brant News:
The local response to the Fort McMurray wildfires has been magical.

The show "Magicians versus Fort McMurray Wildfire – Fighting Fire with Smoke and Mirrors" will feature several of Canada’s top magicians in an up-close-and-personal performance at the Sanderson Centre.
