'Theatre of Illusion' Is Nov. 1 Show At NPAC

"Theatre of Illusion," not your run-of-the-mill magic show, and the Spencers, not your typical magicians, will be appearing Nov. 1 on the stage of the Niswonger Performing Arts Center.

According to a news release, "the Spencers carry a lot of equipment in their 65-foot customized truck and trailer, but a rabbit and a top hat are not in the inventory.

"The Spencers' production is a unique fusion of magic and illusion, humor and mystery, and persona and personality."

Kevin Spencer has a background in clinical psychology and likes to say, "I was going to help people's minds, but now I just mess with them."

"Theatre of Illusion" stands in stark contrast to the traditional magic show. Spencer sees it not as a stage full of tricks used to fool people, but as a way to inspire viewers with a sense of wonder.

By blending the theatrical elements of a Broadway-style production with the high energy of a rock concert, the news release states, these artists strive to take their audiences on a journey to the brink of impossibility ... and back again.

According to the news release: "Audience members don't simply watch the show, but are also invited to participate in the magic. Using magic much like a storyteller uses words, Kevin fuses this family-friendly production with a gamut of emotions. And with the skills of a master showman, he creates a world where nothing is impossible and anything can happen."

Spencer will also be visiting Niswonger Children's Hospital in Johnson City on Thursday, Oct. 31, as part of his outreach program, "Healing of Magic."

"'Healing of Magic' is a collaborative partnership between organizations such as NPAC and area healthcare providers such as Niswonger Children's Hospital," the release quotes Angie Wilson, managing director of NPAC.

The quote continues, "Essentially this outreach program offers the use of simple magic tricks in rehabilitation. It's a carefully designed and systematic approach for both patients, and their caregivers.

"Earlier this year Executive Director Tom Bullard and I were in New York meeting with Kevin, and he described specifics on the program and we felt it would be an ideal benefit, both short-term for the patients and long-term for the caregivers.

"They'll learn some simple illusions that will continue to provide impact long after his visit."

The Spencers have been described as "Modern-Day Houdinis" by the critics. The duo presents a big, high-tech stage show that combines drama, comedy, romance and suspense with elaborate stage illusions.

Showtime is at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1.

Tickets are $30 for orchestra and mezzanine-level seating and $20 for balcony seats.

Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.npacgreeneville.com, in person at the NPAC box office, or by calling 638-1679.

NPAC offers online seat selection and no-fee ticketing. The box office hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

NPAC is located adjacent to Greeneville High School.
