Bozeman-based escape artist Jay Owenhouse is set to appear and disappear in Billings during two performances — at 4 and 8 p.m. — on Saturday, April 30 at Alberta Bair Theater.

His show, "Dare to Believe" has been hailed by critics as one of the Top 10 live shows in the U.S.

Owenhouse creates illusions, performs with Bengal tigers for dangerous escapes, and shares compelling stories.

Owenhouse has appeared on “Masters of Illusions” and “Magic on the Edge.” He toured China and Japan in 2008 with a show awarded “Best Touring Family Show in Asia.” Currently he is working on his new TV series and touring.

Caught by the magic bug at the age of 4, 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 not only for his show, but also for other magicians of world-renown.
