5 Upcoming Red Deer Events to Look Forward to this Spring
Spring is just around the corner (hopefully), and with a new season comes a full set of exciting new Red Deer events to get majorly hyped up about. It’s time to take your new-to-you car from Mac James Motors and explore these upcoming community festivities.
Here’s the low-down for 5 of them to keep your eye on:
West Side Story (the Musical): March 3 – 10, 2018
Join the skilled students of Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School (Fine Arts) as they present West Side Story, the award-winning adaptation of the Shakespearean classic, “Romeo and Juliet.” Two rival gangs, the Sharks and the Jets, fight fiercely for territory and respect. While the fight escalates, Tony, a former Jet, and Maria, the youngest sister of the Shark gang leader, fall in love.
Are they doomed to fail? Come out, watch the show, and support local talent!
Tickets are available here.
The Illusionists: April 13, 2018
The Illusionists are a group of master magicians that feature 5 stars: the Trickster, the Inventor, the Deductionist, the Manipulator, and the Daredevil.
The Trickster, Jeff Hobson, might fool you with his innocent appearance but he’s far from it.
The Inventor, Kevin James, is one of the most ingenious inventors of magic in the world has created some of the most well-appreciated illusions of the last century.
The Deductionist, Colin Cloud, is pretty much known as the real-life Sherlock Holmes. Don’t try to play him at his own game – he’ll read your mind and double cross you to the finish.
The Manipulator, An Ha Lim, was the first place at Korea’s Busan International Magic Competition, the Italy Club Convention Manipulation, the World Magic Seminar in Asia, as well as a Golden Lion Award winner at the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas. Basically, he wins at all things manipulation.
Finally, the Daredevil, Jonathan Goodwin, is known to be one of the craziest stunt performers in the world. He’s a skilled knife thrower, archer, escape artist, fakir, martial artist, free diver, and free climber. He’s not really a magician… but he’ll take your breath away with stunts you wouldn’t have even thought possible.
Quick, get your tickets here, before they disappear too!
