The Show
Charlottetown-based hypnotist Matt MacPhee tries to wrest away control of a pool noodle from Della MacPhee, who, in her hypnotic state, believed the object was a guitar. Justin Boulter, also under hypnosis, looks on. (photo: Chris McGarry)Charlottetown–based hypnotist Matt MacPhee had a small though enthusiastic audience intrigued and dying of laughter with his zany, fun–filled act. The family–friendly display of professional hypnotism featured members of the audience putting themselves under the spell of the master dream chaser where they were commanded to dance to the Village People’s "YMCA," pretend they were Stompin’ Tom Connors, lay on the beach on a scorching summer’s day and even imagine they were in the Tour De France. The hour–long show highlighted some of MacPhee’s greatest skills as a hypnotist. 

The Performance
MacPhee was pure gold on stage. The 21–year–old hypnotist has an amazing rapport with his audiences and will have you questioning as to whether what you’re witnessing is real or merely an illusion. Throughout the performance, he stated certain phrases, which were commands for those under his hypnosis to do all manner of hilarious actions, including forgetting numbers, thinking their legs were frozen in place, and going back to sleep every few minutes or so. 

Best Thing 
MacPhee shines in his one–man show. He’s comical, energetic, sneaky and serious all in one fell swoop. A true class–act.

Final Thoughts
There is never a dull moment. Dream Chaser is a rollercoaster ride of laughter, fascination and disbelief all throughout. A soundtrack featuring some great tunes as well as sounds enhances the overall show. You will be thoroughly intrigued by the hypnotist’s masterful use of techniques and little tricks used to manipulate the hypnotized into doing what is ordered of them. Whatever your plans are this summer, be sure not to miss Dream Chaser
