BEAVER CREEK ” The Spencers bring their “Theatre of Illusion” to the Vilar Center on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. It’s an encore performance for the duo at the Beaver Creek venue.

The Spencers have been described as “Modern Day Houdinis” by the media. The husband and wife team presents a larger-than-life, high-tech stage show that combines drama, comedy, romance and suspense with elaborate stage illusions. The production features special effects and a set design which transport the audience to a place beyond the theatre walls.

With charisma and charm, the Spencers’ personalities travel beyond the stage lights to touch not only their viewers’ minds, but their hearts as well. Between their stage presence and the set, the Spencers lead audiences across a threshold of disbelief only moments after the pair takes the stage. What the Spencers create is ‘theatre’ in the truest sense of the word.

“The Spencers have taken the art of illusion to an entirely new level by infusing it with all the emotional dynamics of good theatre,” wrote the St. Louis Post Dispatch. By combining original theatrical elements with cutting-edge illusions and audience interaction the Spencers have propelled the age-old art of magic into the 21st century.
