On May 14, children of all ages will have the chance to be amazed at AbracaDAZZLE!, a magic show performed by famous magician John Kaplan. The proceeds from this show will go to the East Kootenay Brain Injury Association (EKBIA), an organization that supports people living with brain injury in the area.

John Kaplan’s spellbinding multi-media magic show transports you to a world of wonder and mystery! Your entire family will be gasping in astonishment and rolling in the aisles with laughter… a dazzling experience you’ll be talking about long after the final curtain!

Escape into a realm of fantasy and make-believe where anything is possible!

“AbracaDAZZLE!” dazzles your senses with amazing illusions and spectacular special effects brought to life with electrifying music and dance in an entertainment event that’ll thrill your whole family!

The emphasis is on fun and laughter as the audience is treated to a high-energy, 90-minute program of magic, music, dance and comedy. There’s plenty of fun when audience volunteers are invited onstage to participate in the magic ... sometimes with hilariously disastrous results!

Along the way John gets his revenge on “The Masked Magician” (notorious TV exposer of magician’s secrets) … people and things mysteriously appear, float and vanish into thin air … plus the giant video screen backdrop provides a thrilling “multi-media” component for an added dimension of illusion!

“AbracaDAZZLE!” is John Kaplan’s newest show release, containing some dazzling new illusions along with highlights from over 30 years of performances for family audiences. It’s a wonderfully entertaining mix of killer “Best-Of” material - plus some all-new magic innovations and never-before-seen illusions!

As with John Kaplan’s other popular Fundraising Magic™ productions, this is a show that parents can enjoy with their children and grandparents and everybody will have a terrific time as they share some truly magical moments. Magical moments that’ll leave many fond, lasting memories.

John Kaplan’s “AbracaDAZZLE!” show is a 90-minute live stage show that features a dynamic scenic backdrop, dazzling theatrical lighting effects, big-screen video projection and a talented cast of dancers and performers.

The show occurs on May 14 and a family pass is only $40, or $15 for adults, $10 for children aged 5-18 and children 4 or under get in free. You can pick up tickets at the Key City Theatre Box office or by going to www.keycitytheatre.com.
