FREWIN PART TWO: Magician can make crowds appear
From the Niagara Falls Review:
The whiff of free magic and being on TV has them lining up early.
The show doesn’t start until 6:30 p. m., but by 5 p. m. the lobby is already starting to fill up at the Greg Frewin Theatre. Before they enter, they’re greeted by a sign telling them they will be filmed tonight: “If you attend this event, your image may appear in the production and you hereby give consent to the use of your image.”
For many, that’s the reason they’re here. Two kids decked out in Greg Frewin T-shirts have already seen the show. But mention being on TV, and their eyes light up.
Frewin’s CBC special will take three weeks to film, and this is one of the biggest nights. A good crowd is crucial. A good-looking crowd is equally important. Organizers seat some of the more ‘camera friendly’ patrons near the stage, where they’re more likely to be filmed.
Hats and shirts with corporate logos are a no-no. A greeter asks everyone to smile. A lot.
Oh, and don’t look at the cameras.
