OUTERBRIDGE – TOURING SECRETS LECTURE
When: Thursday November 3rd — 7PM
Where: St Leonards Anglican Church, 25 Wanless Ave
Admission: Free for members. $20 for non members
The Outerbridge lecture has received rave reviews from magic clubs and the 2015 IBM Jacksonville Convention. Ted and Marion Outerbridge present audience-tested, bulletproof routines from over 25 years of performances and media appearances. Their material has been refined at venues ranging from theatres and comedy clubs to casinos, cruise ships and television. Behind-the-scenes touring secrets including how the show is booked, the logistics of touring with a large illusion show, marketing and PR, increasing ticket sales with publicity stunts, developing new material, the eight-hour set-up, and the details of running and striking the show are also discussed. A fascinating slide show makes it possible to obtain a behind the scenes look at life on the road. Ted and Marion answer questions during and after the lecture.
If you are looking for new close-up or stand-up material, wondering how to market yourself, striving to move up to the next level, or just interested in a behind-the-scenes look at a touring illusion show, the Outerbridge lecture is a not to be missed experience.
Illusionists Ted and Marion Outerbridge have been hailed by critics as “the most successful magicians in Canada” (Montreal Gazette) and “champions of magic” (Bergedorfer Zeitung, Hamburg, Germany). They have performed their touring illusion show coast-to-coast and on both sides of the Atlantic. They have also consulted for such entertainment giants as the Cirque du Soleil.
