Magique: A Magic Spectacular



Magique—a Magic Spectacular runs April 21-23 at Metro Theatre

Show blends illusion, comedy and more into Vegas-style show

VANCOUVER—Two illusionists are coming together to create a Vegas-style magic stage show at the Metro Theatre from April 21-23.

Oslen, a semi-finalist on Canada’s Got Talent, who has performed his act in front of sell-out crowds around the world, and Kel, an award-winning magician who has performed sold-out shows at the Michael J. Fox Theatre and Massey Theatre, are joining forces to create “Magique–A Magic Spectacular.” The show combines cutting-edge illusions, music, dance, comedy, audience interaction and precision sleight of hand.

“This is not your average magic show for children,” a spokesperson for the production said. “Magique has more than 100 costume pieces, a thousand pieces of feathers, plus and countless number of Swarovski rhinestones. Oslen and Kel are highly-trained, fantastically skilled illusionists, and the show has an air of suspense and theatricality that we think will surprise and amaze the audience.”

Oslen, who was the only magician to make the semi-final round of Canada’s Got Talent, is the winner of the CCTV Best Performance award. He’s a professionally trained actor, dancer, singer, radio announcer, magician and illusionist.

Kel, whose act has appeared on Fairchild TV, Fairchild Radio and Channel M, offers a combination of comedy and skillful sleight of hand that has left audiences spellbound.

“Oslen and Kel are world-class entertainers,” the spokesperson said. “It’s going to be a night filled with exciting, high-octane performances that incorporates dance, magic, music and more. Most people don’t get a chance to see live magic at all, let alone a show of this caliber. We’re excited to present it.”
