The Station Theatre is bringing the world-class magic show OUTERBRIDGE – Clockwork Mysteries to Smiths Falls on Saturday evenings this summer. Critics across the globe have hailed Ted and Marion Outerbridge as “champions of magic” (Bergedorfer Zeitung, Hamburg, Germany) and described their performance as “A visual feast” (Jinhua Daily, China).
After years of performing around the world, The Outerbridges have recently relocated to Smiths Falls, and are delighted to be performing minutes from their new home in the Ottawa Valley!
Says Outerbridge, “Years ago doing a theatrical show, comparable to something in Las Vegas, in a town of 9,000 would not have been possible, but T.V. shows like America’s Got Talent have created a renaissance in the magical arts.”
Just as magic is experiencing a renaissance, tourism in Smiths Falls has been growing, mostly due to the interest in cannabis tourism fueled by Tweed headquarters.
OUTERBRIDGE – Clockwork Mysteriesprovides a rare opportunity for residents and visitors alike to see a performance that has appeared around the world and at the members-only Magic Castle in Los Angeles.
It is the most successful illusion show in Canada, and has received both the 2011 Award of Excellence from Ontario Contact and the 2010 Touring Artist of the Year award from the B.C. Touring Council.
Within seconds of taking the stage, the Outerbridges fuse their revolutionary illusions with split-second artistry to hold viewers spellbound. The audience is invited into a mysterious clock tower equipped with a variety of timekeeping devices. With the help of an elaborate Victorian time machine, the performers and spectators become part of a race against time. They experience time accelerating and slowing down and participate in predicting the contents of a time capsule.
OUTERBRIDGE – Clockwork Mysteries plays the Smiths Falls Station Theatre on Saturdays, June 29, July 6, 13, 20, 27, August 3, 24 & 31. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. 2:00 p.m. matinees have been added on August 24 & 31. Tickets are $15 & $30 and are available by phone at (613) 283-0300, online at www.smithsfallstheatre.com and in person at Special Greetings, 8 Russell Street East in Smiths Falls.
