Portland Spirit is excited to announce the return of their Spirit of Magic dinner cruise. Come on board for an evening of vaudeville style magic and comedy. Experience masterful magic from Portland’s own premier Magicians The Amazing Mathias and Adam the Great, as well as, the physical comic talents of fast talking Michael Tigger O’Neill.
You will be held spellbound with close-up table side slight-of-hand and amazed by the more traditional showroom style stage illusions. In addition, the Fresh Northwest cuisine and a two and a half hour cruise through beautiful downtown Portland make for a truly magical evening. This is a night you will talk about for years.
Amazing Mathias has over 20 years of performance experience The Amazing Mathias is the Portland area’s best kept magic secret. Mathias’ show is a jump back to yester year. Imagine the heyday of the famous Showboat’s paddling the Mississippi. He will have the audience gasping as his show, set to the tune of turn of the century music, produces lit candles from mid air and floats objects around the stage. Hundreds of playing cards appear from nowhere and leave his audiences pleasantly puzzled!
Adam the Great has been practicing the art of magic for over 15 years. Born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, “Adam the Great” realized that magic would be his calling at the age of 18. Inspired by master magician’s Carey Heim and Tony Oberio, Adam took magic on by a storm and has proven himself one of the premier magician’s in the region. His style of magic not only amazes, but most importantly, entertains. The “Adam the Great” magic show is a unique blend of charm, wit, audience interaction, and innovative magic. Adam’s talents include eye-popping close up magic to outstanding comedy stage shows.
Michael Tigger O’Neill has toured with Ringling Brothers, Tears of Joy Puppet Theatre and is a co- founder of the Nomadic Theatre Company. He has performed on Good Morning America, the Today Show and MTVA dynamic new show that blends world-class variety theatre skills with intelligent, entertaining, and thought-provoking symbolism. Through expertise in juggling, physical comedy, dance, stilt walking, and percussion they will tickle your imagination and inspire awe from start to finish.
$75.00/person; includes two and a half hour cruise, fresh Northwest Cuisine, mystifying magical entertainment and service gratuity. $65/person for groups of 15 or more passengers.
