Fort Saskatchewan Shell Theatre – Mix 107.9 presents: Chris Funk – The Wonderist “Redefining Wonder”
His parents wanted him to be a musician, he wanted to be a magician. Chris Funk’s REDEFINING WONDER is an engaging and visceral multimedia experience that has audiences talking and scratching their heads for years to come. Finally, a MAGIC SHOW WITH LIVE MUSIC! Chris has pioneered the use of instruments like the violin, guitar, flute, and more in his illusions. Whether it’s a violin concerto to a magical dancing sheet of music to impossibly suspending various instruments on stage, his show is in a league of its own. Live-feed cameras and interactive videos bring audiences up onstage and into the action, delivering a show that family audiences can call their own.
From NBC’s America’s Got Talent, CW’s Penn & Teller: Fool Us & Masters of Illusion, FOX’s Hell’s Kitchen and Syfy’s Wizard Wars, his unique approach to magic has garnered him performances at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood, Mandalay Bay, Rio, and Tropicana casinos as well as residencies at Disney. In addition to his own touring, Chris has starred in the major touring magic production Masters of Illusion LIVE.
REDEFINING WONDER is more than just a magic show. Chris shares his story, tying in his passion for music and magic – garnering standing ovations and a reputation for excellence!
“There’s a WILDNESS and beauty to Chris Funk’s daft and funny presence that we – and the audiences we’ve seen him with – find IRRESISTIBLE.”
– Penn & Teller
