FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ladies and Gentlemen, Fergus is taking the international stage
A mysterious and emerging production team is magically appearing in Fergus and Elora, ON Canada. Filming to take place at the Fergus Grand Theatre March 22 & March 25, 2018.
FERGUS, ON – On March 22 and March 25, 2018, filming is taking place in the Township of Centre Wellington and what is being filmed is gaining a lot of international attention. There will be lights, cameras, and magic as four world-renowned magicians and variety artists arrive at the Fergus Grand Theatre for a live-audience filming.
“We need a live, enthusiastic audience for two tapings,” says Ryan Joyce the show’s producer “We’re trying to make Fergus and Elora the centre point of magic in Canada and around the world. Our first two filmings will feature four world-acclaimed acts coming right here to our own backyard.
Ryan Joyce is a resident of Fergus who travels the globe performing his own magic. “Magic is the only job I’ve ever had and that’s all because of Fergus. We have some very magical roots here.” Joyce says proudly. “My first stage was the Fergus Grand Theatre. There is a lot of emotions, this could be huge for our community.”
Joyce and his team are now entering production phase and they are asking people interested in the community to visit fergusfilming.ca to get filming notices and updates.
“We are packaging two edited shows for distribution. Live at the Grand is a showcase of the worlds greatest variety entertainers and Wonder Town profiles these incredible artists and how they end up here, in the most magical town in the world.”
The biggest trick is still hiding up Joyce’s sleeve– and it’s causing quite a stir.
“The show is free but you have to eat locally. Presto! Your dinner ticket becomes your show ticket. Come spend money in our community and be part of this exciting opportunity.” Joyce continues “I think that’s how the most magical town in the world should do it.”
For those coming further out of town and can’t meet Joyce’s philanthropic terms, he has an option. “If you can’t make dinner at one of our local restaurants we will have a small donation option to reserve your seat. All those funds benefit a local non-profit,” says Joyce.
Joyce has partnered with the Fergus Lions Club for this first filming and all in-kind funds will support the Lions Club.
We can’t read minds, but we think he might be onto something wonderful.
