Altered States
June 23 & 24 7:30 PM  $20
Show Style: Comedy / Hypnosis
When it comes to displaying the power of the subconscious mind, with Las Vegas-trained hypnotist Brandon Dean, one phrase rings true: Seeing is Believing! Each show, Brandon calls for volunteers from the audience who want to explore the power of their imagination and subconscious mind.

Hilarity ensues as he takes them on entertaining journeys to imaginary environments. Watching friends and family (and complete strangers) in funny routines and situations Brandon creates will leave you amazed and laughing.Audience volunteers are required for a successful hypnosis show. Opening the show, Brandon quickly dispels myths and common fears: audience volunteers are not demeaned or embarrassed; no one can be hypnotized against their will; and, no one reveals their deep, dark secrets. Brandon point outs that "anyone who has seen or participated in my hypnosis show, already knows that there's nothing to fear - and the best seats in the house are actually on stage."

Volunteers from the OLMC will be there to demonstrate the art of lapidary and club activities -- making cabochons, faceting stones and stone carving.  Some members will sell their unique jewellery at the "Club Creation Corner".  Children can fish for polished stones at the Fish Pond, and learn how to make "rock critters" and other creations at the Kid's Craft Table.
