Jay Owenhouse, a legendary escape artist and one of the most awarded illusionists, will appear at Nampa Idaho’s Civic Center for a one night only performance in “Dare to Believe,” an illusion spectacular with two Bengal tigers, including a rare white tiger. The June 3 event begins at 7:30 p.m.

The show has been voted by audiences and critics “One of the Top 10 Live Shows in America.” The illusionist has amazed millions on television in “Master’s of Illusions” and “Magic on the Edge.” The Salt Lake Tribune calls him “simply amazing!” and The Tokyo Times calls the elaborate production “truly magic, a must see.”

Hollywood entertainment journalist, Mark Ebner, has called The Magic of Jay Owenhouse, “the greatest touring family show on earth.”

Owenhouse welcomes his audience into his mysterious world of wonder and the impossible. You will experience a night of grand illusions using Bengal tigers with up close action, dangerous escapes, and inspiring storytelling.

Owenhouse spent 2008 touring China and Japan, where his show received the best touring family show in Asia award. Now, back in the United States, Owenhouse is working on his new television series and is receiving critical acclaim for his live show “Dare to Believe!”
Caught by the magic bug at 4 years of age, Owenhouse first performed as a freshman in high school. Since then, in the spirit of giving it away to keep it, he has invented magic effects and designed illusions around two Bengal tigers.
