Stage & Theatre
Scott Dietrich, featured on YTV (Canadian Youth Television), was first recognized internationally at the age of 18 when he won 1st place honors as the youngest competitor in the Abbott’s Senior Magic Competition in Colon, MI.
At age 22, Scott was named Showman of the Year at the Millennium Magic Convention in Limerick, Ireland. In 2012 readers of “City Parent Magazine”, one of Canada’s largest parenting publications, voted Scott “Best Birthday Party Entertainer”. He is widely recognized as one of Canada’s premier children’s performers. He attended Eastwood Collegiate Institute and was a graduate of their Integrated Arts Package.
YTV selected Scott to be the face of their new magic campaign. Each evening he introduces kids’ favorite TV programs during Big Fun Weeknights using his own unique brand of street magic. Juno award winning artist Shawn Desman selected Scott as his opening act at his CD launch party.
Scott was also featured in an episode of Arrested Design on the W Network, where he took a magic enthusiast through a crash course in illusion. Other television appearances include Breakfast Television, Global News, CKCO Television and Romper Room (when he was just a boy).
Scott was honored when Farrow Memory Speakers awarded him the prestigious “Tut Award of Excellence” for his work in education. In May of 2012, Scott proudly released his first children’s book Can’t and Never are Forever, an inspirational story for children about the importance of positive self-talk. The book is illustrated by Denise Garrido, Miss World Canada 2010. Out of everything Scott has accomplished, he is most proud of the work he is doing with School Heroes Unite.
Having been bullied himself, not only can he identify with what students are going through, he can confidently tell them that it does get better and give them the tools to get there.
