John Kaplan's travelling magic show returns to DTSS on Monday

It’s time to roll up your sleeves Invermere, and get ready for some fun because John Kaplan’s Abracadazzle magic show is coming to town.

The local A.C.E. (Access in the Community for Everyone) group, a non-profit organization run by volunteers, is hosting this event to raise money and awareness for the group. The 90-minute production will be presented on Monday, May 13th at the David Thompson Secondary gym. Be prepared for an upbeat show that will “dazzle your senses” and “keep you on the edge of your seats.”

With electrifying music and high energy entertainment, this will be an event the whole family will enjoy, whether they’re gazing in astonishment at the illusions or rolling around with laughter. This spellbinding multi-media magic show first started in Strathmore, Alberta, and has thrived ever since. The show has visited Invermere several times in past productions.

The show will include door prizes and some surprising acts which may involve some well-known members of the community. This show is sure to dazzle the crowd and leave people talking about it long after the final curtain.

If you’re interested in joining John Kaplan for a fun night, you can purchase tickets at the Monkey’s Uncle or Rainbow Donkey.

Advance adult tickets cost $10, children’s tickets cost $8, and family passes of four are being sold for $30. At the door, adults pay $15 and children pay $10. Online tickets for the show can also be found at

magicshoeace@eventbrite.ca . The high school gym doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. For more information, contact Spring Hawes at 250-342-5596 or Cielle Cowles at 250-342-5732.
