The Station Theatre is bringing the world-class magic show “OUTERBRIDGE – Clockwork Mysteries” to Smiths Falls on Saturday evenings this summer (@ 7:30pm – July 13, 20, 27, August 3, 24 & 31 – $15/$30, 613-283-0300, www.smithsfallstheatre.com , or in-person at Special Greetings, 8 Russell St E).
Critics across the globe have hailed Ted & Marion Outerbridge as “masters of Illusion” (CBC-Radio Canada), “champions of magic” (Bergedorfer Zeitung, Hamburg, Germany), and described their performance as “a visual feast” (Jinhua Daily, China).
A fantastical show that is at once magic, dance, theatre, and a dash of wonder, “OUTERBRIDGE – Clockwork Mysteries” received the Award of Excellence from Ontario Contact, the Touring Artist of the Year award from the BC Touring Council, and set 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!
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.
