Illusionist to perform at Masuk Saturday

    MONROE — Illusionist Lyn Dillies loves to wow people with fascinating feats of magic, from making an audience member levitate to contorting her assistant into a corkscrew shape.

    But the performer, who will bring her act to Masuk High School on Saturday, said she’s not just about putting on a show. She also loves to inspire people.

    “I love the impact that magic can have on people,” said Dillies, who hails from Massachusetts. “I consider magic a gift that I was destined to do. I feel like my show can teach kids that, if they work hard, they can be whoever they want to be.

    Dillies has performed all over the country, from New York’s Lincoln Center to Hollywood’s Magic Castle.

    Her performance at Masuk will benefit Congregation Adath Israel synagogue in Newtown and will help the organization provide Jewish services, community outreach, support and learning in the greater Newtown area.

    Dillies has performed magic for more than 30 years. In 2013, she was awarded the prestigious Milbourne Christopher Award — the Academy Award of Magic — from the Society of American Magicians. Past recipients have included David Copperfield, Penn and Teller and Siegfried and Roy.

    She said her show at Masuk will be a 90-minute performance, choreographed to music and featuring a healthy dose of audience participation.

    “It’s a very a high-energy exciting show,” Dillies said. “There’s definitely a ‘Wow’ factor.”

    The show starts at 7 p.m. but doors open at 6 p.m., with a bake sale and silent auction. Tickets purchased in advance are $25 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under. Tickets are also available at the door: $30 for adults and $20 for children 12 and under. In addition, tickets can be reserved by phone: 203-426-5188 or purchased by visiting https://adath.
