Here’s an opportunity that doesn’t come along every day: if you live in Fergus or Elora in Ontario, Canada, magician Ryan Joyce is giving you an opportunity to see a free taping of a magic show at the Fergus Grand Theatre. 

The invite comes via a special page of Magic Masterclass devoted to the upcoming event, where Joyce lays out how he came to film a video for the free series of online courses, and how it gave him an idea to put on a show.

From the event page:

It seemed criminal to bring world-renowned entertainers to the Fergus Grand Theatre and not share their talents with the community I love. 

That’s when Live at the Grand was born. 

We are now scheduling to bring the world’s greatest magicians, variety artists and visual entertainers right here to Fergus Grand Theatre and film a show for distribution (think TV, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc.) You won’t believe the entertainers who are coming here– to Fergus!

The only catch to gain free entry is that you must dine at a local Fergus or Elora restaurant. Joyce wants the taping to be as much about the community surrounding the event as much as it is the event itself, and your receipt will become your ticket when you arrive at the Fergus Grand Theatre.

Filming for the show will begin in March, and visitors to the event page are encouraged to sign up to receive updates via email, and to share it with anyone and everyone they can on social media and in person.
