Wellesley Community Center Creates Grand Illusion with Special Guest Lyn Dillies rescheduled for February 6.
On Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 4:00PM, the Wellesley Community Center will tape another episode of Gil Stubbs’ World of Magic, featuring special guest magician and illusionist, Lyn Dillies.
Lyn has performed all over North American and has made many television appearances over the years. She is regarded in the entertainment field as the most accomplished female illusionist in the business. “One of her most notable performances was to make two live Asian elephants, Ruth and Emily, appear in succession. The event was held outdoors in front of a live audience for the grand opening of the Buttonwood Park Zoo in her hometown of New Bedford MA. It took eight months to prepare for this incredible spectacle and required more than 5,000 square feet of fabric, 300 feet of truss, two cases of red seedless grapes (the pachyderms' favorite treat) and a little sleight of trunk! “Using an original concept that took years of planning, Lyn performs her “Magic at the Symphony” program live with symphonies all around the country including several performances at Lincoln Center. This program combines the majesty of classical music with Lyn’s breathtaking illusions encouraging children to discover the magic of classical music while experiencing the harmony of her illusions.”
Her heritage is anchored by magic. Her great-grandfather, Thomas Wyatt, was an amateur magician and member of the New Bedford Magic Wand Club, an organization she was to join in her early teens. While Ms. Dillies’ parents are not performers, each has gotten into the act by supporting her career. I the early days, mom Loretta acted as a booking agent and wardrobe manager, while father Calvin built her first illusion. They shared chauffeur duties and marveled when their daughter began to drive a large truck to transport her seven ton show. “I never would have made it without them,” say Ms. Dillies of her two most ardent fans. “My family and friends are the real magic in my life!”
