SF Community Theatre presents 'Narnia - A Musical Imagining'

02:00 PM — 04:00 PM

Four siblings are sent away from London during World War II to stay with their uncle. They stumble upon (and through) a wardrobe into the magical kingdom of Narnia, held in the power of the White Witch, whose evil spell has frozen the land, so that it is “always winter – and never Christmas.” They are embraced by the talking animals, who are awaiting the return of Aslan – the Great Lion, who is their rightful ruler. Aslan, who has long been absent from his land has – at last! – returned, to confront the Witch, and the children are soon caught up in a fierce struggle of good versus evil. Tickets available at: Special Greetings, 8 Russell Street, E (cash only); online and phone (credit)

OUTERBRIDGE–“Clockwork Mysteries”: Magic, dance, theatre, and a dash of wonder!

07:30 PM — 09:00 PM

The Station Theatre is bringing the world-class magic show OUTERBRIDGE – Clockwork Mysteries to Smiths Falls on Saturday evenings this summer (@ 7:30pm -- July 20, 27, August 3, 24 & 31 -- $⁠1⁠5⁠⁠/⁠⁠$⁠3⁠0⁠⁠, 6⁠1⁠3⁠-2⁠8⁠3⁠-⁠0⁠30⁠0⁠⁠, http://smithsfallstheatre.com/other-attractions , or in-person at Special Greetings, 8 Russell St E).  Critics across the globe have hailed Ted and Marion Outerbridge as “a master of Illusion” (CBC-Radio Canada), "champions of magic" (Bergedorfer Zeitung, Hamburg, Germany), described their performance as "a visual feast" (Jinhua Daily, China), and exclaimed “WOW, that was fantastic… BRAVO!” (Global TV). It is the most successful illusion show in Canada, and it wouldn’t be an over-statement to say that OUTERBRIDGE is Canada’s reply to America’s Copperfield, having received both the Award of Excellence from Ontario Contact, the Touring Artist of the Year award from the BC. Touring Council, and setting box office records, one of which generated a call to a Fire Marshall to get permission to expand seating! After years of performing around the world, including Europe, China and the famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, the Outerbridges have recently relocated to Smiths Falls, and are delighted to be performing minutes from their new home in the Ottawa Valley!  Says Ted 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 TV 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 medical cannabis and cannabis tourism fueled by Tweed headquarters. OUTERBRIDGE – Clockwork Mysteries provides a rare opportunity for residents and visitors alike to see a performance in this economic and cultural hub. Within seconds of taking the stage, the Outerbridges fuse their revolutionary illusions with split-second artistry to hold viewers spellbound. A fantastical event that is at once magic, dance, theatre, and a dash of wonder, 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. 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.  Indeed, in one of Ted’s illusions, he vanishes from the stage, appearing instantaneously in the audience and completely surprising them. One evening, he so confounded an audience member by this illusion, “someone was upset because I was blocking their view of the show”, Ted recalls. “They were yelling and hit me to get out of the way. Then they realized it was me.”  Outerbridge wasn’t injured.  “I was amused.” www.tedouterbridge.com
