Thrills! Chills! And… magic. What more could you ask for in the run up to Halloween? That’s what the ladies of Beta Sigma Phi are hoping will be the public response to Stage Fright — The THRILLusion Show, which is being performed at Revelsloke Secondary School on Thursday.
Tammy Smith, one of the organizers of the show said Saturday that she hopes it will raise enough money to make a difference for Trees for Tots, the Community Connections Youth Program and Youth Soccer.
“We have received excellent support from private benefactors buying huge blocks of tickets – as many as 40 per benefactor!” she said in a brief interview. “The tickets have gone to youth and adults throughout our community who couldn’t otherwise afford to attend the event on their own. Its wonderful sponsorship – but more is definitely needed! If we could challenge others out there who do well for themselves, and would like to send a youth or a family to the show, please contact me!”
But the sorority can’t achieve that goal unless people come to see the show. And what a show it could be.
Stage Fright — The THRILLusion Show features magician John Kaplan who, among other things like sawing people in half and other amazing feats, will decapitate EZ Rock DJ Steve Smith live and on stage, Tammy Smith said.
This one-night only performance will be held at the Revelstoke Secondary School gymnasium on Thursday, Oct. 15. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door. Don’t miss it!
