Comedy meets magic

Magician extraordinaire Leif David will be showcasing his stage magic at the Greater Vernon museum on Halloween.

What’s better than dressing up in your favourite costume, trick or treating, and prizes?

A magic show might just fit the bill, and the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives is excited to announce that magician extraordinaire Leif David will be showcasing his stage magic at the museum on Halloween.

The spooktacular magic show will be held Oct. 31 at 10 a.m., followed by the opportunity for children to trick or treat at the museum’s old town shops. Those attending in costume will be entered into the draws, with prizes donated by Ya Ya’s Playcentre, Vernon Teach & Learn and Dominos Pizza.

“The show features clean comedy and tons of audience participation, making the audience volunteers the stars of the show,” said Denise Marsh, marketing and communications coordinator for the museum. “I witnessed this when my own daughter, Keira, was chosen as an audience volunteer during a show last year at Hillview elementary school.

“He had the whole audience including Keira on stage in stitches. Leif is so charismatic and funny that my daughter still talks about how much fun it was to be on stage with him. She’s even kept the precious paper hat that he gave her as a keepsake for her participation.”

David has studied with some of the world’s greatest magicians and has more than 21 years’ experience — audience members are sure to enjoy his family-friendly show.

“The museum would like to extend a huge thank you to our sponsor, Nixon Wenger Lawyers, who made this event possible,” said Marsh.

Tickets are $5 per person, available at the Vernon Museum prior to the show. As seating is limited, it is strongly suggested to purchase your tickets early. For more information, please call 250-542-3142, visit www.vernonmuseum.ca or find the museum on Facebook.

The Greater Vernon Museum & Archives is at 3009-32nd Ave.
