TikTok Sensations The Outerbridges set to Premiere Mysteries of the Keyhole House
Based on a true story of the once dilapidated historic home they now happily share with spirits of yesteryear, and which they lovingly call the Keyhole House, Ted and Marion Outerbridge are set to premiere their production of Mysteries of the Keyhole House at the Station Theatre, Smiths Falls, on June 30th.
Ted Outerbridge’s masterful storytelling and vlog about the Keyhole House have received over 30 million views on social media and appearances on CTV National News, a TVO documentary, and NBC’s The Golf Channel.
The Mysteries of the Keyhole House tour of the Ottawa Valley kicks off with performances from June 30-July 22 at The Station Theatre in Smiths Falls and continues to Perth July 28-Aug 12, Carleton Place Aug 18-26, and Gananoque Sept 8-16.

The Keyhole House is an enchanting home inhabited by Ted and Marion Outerbridge, TikTok sensations and headliners at Hollywood’s Magic Castle. Connoisseurs of all things magical, the Outerbridges were chosen by the abandoned home to become guardians of it as a historic gem. As they began restoring the creaking floors that carried the weight of countless footsteps, a treasure trove of cherished relics materialized before their eyes.
From delicate skeleton keys to faded photographs, from a forgotten spool of thread to yellowed newspapers, a Victorian dollhouse, and even a 1918 golf ball, each artifact whispers tales of bygone eras.
The Keyhole House has been transported into the digital era by the Outerbridges’ captivating vlog. With millions of views on social media and appearances on television, the Keyhole House has become international news.
The videos gave life to Mysteries of the Keyhole House, a reverent, mystical, and joyous show where magic becomes the master storyteller. Audiences will be transported through time as Ted and Marion Outerbridge take them through an evening of enthralling illusions, séance, and dance, creating a spine-tingling spectacle of living history.
The story began when, fresh off their Hollywood appearances, in search of an old Victorian home, a chance Google listing lured the Outerbridges to the house and its grand keyhole arched entryway. That was the first tell-tale sign; after all, what magician doesn’t love a keyhole and its portal to the otherworldly!
The couple was immediately smitten with the house. Despite concerns from banks and building inspectors, Ted and Marion Outerbridge could not be swayed and moved in on a cold November day. Ever since, and ever thankful, the Keyhole House has generously returned its love with regular revelations of its storied past.
Ted and Marion thought they chose the house but came to realize the house chose them. Evidence of this manifested itself when Ted discovered a book behind a hidden stairwell; he opened it to a random page only to find an illustration of a character named “Ted”! A dusty newspaper discovered in the attic featured a headline, “Dance Little Ladies,” a perfectly choreographed welcome to Marion, herself a professionally trained dancer.
Setting itself apart from other magic shows, the Keyhole House is a real-life, real-time celebration of the departed. It serves as a living, breathing bridge between reality and illusion, past and present, and the rhythmic cadence of time. Prepare to be captivated as you step into this ethereal realm, leaving an indelible mark on your soul.
