Fergus Filming Notices



The winds of opportunity are bringing an exciting filming project to Fergus and Elora.

Hello Fergus & Elora residents!

My name is Ryan Joyce and I’m a local Fergus resident, magician, hypnotist, and filmmaker.  Last October I secretly brought a world-renowned guest to the Fergus Grand Theatre to film an exciting new project.

The guest was Michael Close, a brilliant mind in the world of magic.  He’s a performer, author, and magic consultant for Penn & Teller and their hit television show on CW Network Penn & Teller’s Fool Us. In fact, that’s where we first met (WATCH: Ryan Joyce on Penn & Teller’s Fool Us)

Michael joined us to film an exciting new educational video series for the 100,000+ global community of magicians.  Magician’s Masterclass is only for magicians but right in the middle of filming it became very clear the opportunity that lay ahead.

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


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!

Tickets are free*

THURS, MARCH 22 at 8PM SUN, MARCH 25 at 7PM SUN, MARCH 25 at 7PM
PLEASE NOTE: Some performers and shows feature PG 13 material with some innuendo or adult themes.

*A free evening of world-class entertainment. What’s the catch?

 To get in for free  we ask you to come and enjoy a meal locally at one of the many amazing restaurants in historic Fergus or EloraYour receipt from dinner becomes your ticket.  We want to make this a magical evening– not just in the theatre but all around the community.

*An actual ticket reservation is required. Details coming to your email soon.

I need your help:

      Thanks Ed. Appreciate your support! Busy times… these two full-time projects (aka jobs) in addition to the other job that means traveling for a living. There are only a handful of weeks open this year. Your support is welcome as my sanity begins to fade! 🙂
