MARKHAM – October 29, 2019 – When you combine fast-paced physical comedy with snazzy magic, you've got a winning show for the whole family. That sums up SNAP Magic... Re-Invented!, a delightful award-winning show from South Korea whose seven performers know how to get the whole family oohing, aahing, and laughing out loud through ingenious stage language, mind-bending illusion, mime, comedy, and a spellbinding tale.

This enormously entertaining and highly imaginative fan-favourite at the world’s largest Fringe Festival in Edinburgh makes its way to the Flato Markham Theatre straight from a sold-out run on Broadway!

“There is magic on Broadway, and now it is in Markham,” says Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti. “We are thrilled to welcome this stunning, imaginative and captivating show to the Flato Markham Theatre, the ideal venue for international, national and award-winning performances. The show is for all to enjoy, a truly unforgettable experience.” “We are so excited to welcome SNAP Magic... Re-Invented! to the Flato Markham Theatre,” said General Manager Eric Lariviere. “It is a real coup for the City of Markham to be hosting a Canadian premiere, and exposing our audience to award-winning, world-class magicians from South Korea.”

Audiences will travel with Korea’s most influential and world-famous illusionists on an astonishing mystery tour that crosses paths with wizards and alchemists and other intriguing characters.

Playing with space, time, and the otherworld, this captivating adventure boggles minds with impressive powers of magic. Mixing dexterous sleight of hand, Chaplin-esque vaudevillian comedy, and ingenious visual effects, SNAP Magic…Re-Invented! conjures a marvelous, magical theatrical production perfect for the whole family.

SNAP… Magic Re-Invented! is on stage at the Flato Markham Theatre from Friday, November 1 to Sunday, November 3, 2019. Tickets are $55 for adults and $15 for students, and can be purchased by calling the Box Office at 905.305.7469 or at flatomarkhamtheatre.ca.
