Mentalist duo to appear at Dickens Parlour Theatre

Jeff and Tessa Evason are coming to Millville later this month to entertain with a demonstration of the “paranormal,” representatives of Dickens Parlour Theatre announced this week.

“Since 1983, the Evasons, who are based in Toronto and Annapolis, have astounded audiences the world over. Their performance is a mind-blowing repertoire of paranormal feats. Audiences react with wide-eyed wonder when Tessa and Jeff demonstrate their skills in ESP, telepathy, super memory, prediction, telekinesis and levitation.”

Described as a “slick blend of interactive demonstration, comic relief and spellbinding entertainment,” they said the Evasons’ show “is definitely not a magic show. There are no wires or hidden communication devices. Nothing is prearranged with secret assistants or audience members. In fact, the Evasons offer $100,000 to anybody who can prove otherwise. The experience defies explanation. And maybe that’s why the crowds go wild at every show.”

On NBC’s “World’s Greatest Magic V,” the Evasons were called: “The finest act of its kind in the world,” while their performance on Fox’s “Powers of the Paranormal” was touted as: “The most amazing mind reading act you’ve ever seen.” The Discovery Channel hailed them as: “A new generation of mentalists.”

Siegfried & Roy named The Evasons their favorite act, awarding them the SARMOTI Award at the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas. They have also been named the Psychic Entertainers Association’s Performers of the Year.

“Many times during our show, people are totally speechless because they’ve never seen anything like this before.” said Jeff Evason. “One moment in particular is absolutely shocking. Afterwards, we ask how many people got goosebumps and a lot of hands go up!”

The Evasons said they think it’s good for people to be skeptical and to ask questions about things they don’t understand. “We often ask how many in the audience have called the TV psychic hotlines,” said Tessa Evason. “And when we ask if they called back a second time, very few hands go up.”

“Our main focus is to entertain and inspire our audience,” said Jeff Evason. “Hopefully, we give everybody an experience they will never forget!”

The Evasons will be appearing at Dickens Parlour Theatre in Millville on March 31 and April 1 and 2, at 7 p.m. Tickets can be obtained by calling (302) 829-1071 or visiting
