THE AMAZING TRISTAN JAMES IN

New stage magic show by Tristan
James explores the magic of dreams
WAKEFIELD, RI- On Friday, February 12, for one night only as part of its annual “Springboard” program, Contemporary Theater Company presents Dwelling on Dreams, a magic show for all ages.
Written, directed, and performed by local magician Tristan James, assisted by his wife Caitlin, Dwelling on Dreams is an exploration of the magic of dreams, with impossible, dream-like things happening before the audience’s eyes.
The show aims to elevate magic to a true theatrical art by creating meaning behind the effects, combining tried-and-true classical magic effects with modern, state-of-the-art magic, and some effects even of the performer’s own invention.
All Springboard tickets are $10 and can be purchased at contemporarytheatercompany.com. It’s a cost-effective way to see magic as an art form, and a fun way to spend a Friday evening for people of all ages, not just kids.
More about Tristan James
Tristan James is the stage name of 26-year-old magician Tristan Ogram Buckley (“Ogram Buckley” is all one surname). Having grown up in Pennsylvania and spent the last two years in North Carolina, Tristan came to Rhode Island just in August, 2015.
Tristan started performing on stage in high school, and upon graduating, went to Penn State University to study Film and Video. It was there that he met his wife, Caitlin, who sparked his interest in magic. Soon, Tristan was a leading member of the Penn State Performing Magicians.
During his time with the Penn State Performing Magicians, Tristan directed Random Acts of Wonder, a variety stage magic show featuring several members of the group at the State Theatre in downtown State College, PA.
Tristan performs weekly at the Moe’s Southwest Grill in Wakefield, RI. He is available to perform for private parties, weddings, banquets, restaurants, and bars, among other things, and can be found through his website at AmazingTJ.com
Dwelling on Dreams will be Tristan’s first solo-billing stage show.
