Jay Owenhouse, a legendary escape artists and one of the most awarded illusionists in history, will Perform in Muskegon – one night only in “Dare to Believe!”, an illusion spectacular. The show has been voted by audiences and critics alike “One of the Top 10 Live Shows in America”. Jay has amazed millions on T.V. in  “Master’s of Illusions” and  ‘Magic on the Edge’. The Salt Lake Tribune calls him “Simply Amazing!” and The Tokyo Times calls the elaborate production “Truly Magic, a Must See!”. Jay welcomes you into his mysterious world of wonder and the impossible. You will experience a night of grand illusions with the most amazing magic in the world, Bengal tigers up close, dangerous escapes, and inspiring storytelling. Seeing Owenhouse live is an evening that will leave you breathless with a feeling of childhood wonder that “anything is possible!”.

Owenhouse spent 2008 touring China and Japan, Where Jay’s show received the “Best Touring Family Show in Asia”-award. Now back in the U.S. He is working on his  New T.V. Series and receiving critical acclaim for his live show “Dare to Believe!”

Caught by the magic bug at four years old, Owenhouse first performed as a freshman in high school. Since then, in the spirit of “giving it away to keep it,” he’s invented magic effects and designed illusions not only for his show, but also for other magicians of world renown.

Come See Why- Hollywood entertainment journalist, Mark Ebner, calls The Magic of Jay Owenhouse, “[With apologies to PT Barnum] the greatest touring Family show on earth.”


“In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.” -Baba Dioum, Senegalese Conservationist.

I came across this quote the other day and it really touched my mind and my heart. The quote is derived from a 1968 speech made in New Delhi, India by the Senegalese environmentalist Baba Dioum.

In 1900 there were over 100,000 tigers in the wild. Today there are less than 3,000 tigers in the wild. Animal bans and restrictions have not been effective in saving the tiger population.

However, as the quote above suggests, people care about conserving what they love. It has been an honor and a privilege for my family and I to share with our audiences an up close experience with the magnificent Bengal tiger. At every show we offer a VIP ticket and the proceeds from this ticket go to tiger protection and conservation. Specifically the money goes to the Corbett Foundation to support the tiger reserves in

We believe that in order to grow and nurture love for an animal species (like the tiger) we need to have an understanding and knowledge of that animal. In the VIP experience at our show we offer audiences the opportunity to meet our tigers and learn about them. Our hope is that everyone who attends our show will not only leave mesmerized with a renewed sense of wonder but also a greater understanding and love for one of God’s greatest creations- the Bengal tiger.
